Gypsum based adhesives for thermal/acoustic insulation composite panels and gypsum boards - Definitions, requirements and test methods
This European Standard specifies the characteristics and performances of gypsum based adhesives which are composed of gypsum plasters defined in EN 13279-1 and of additives. These adhesives are used for fixing to walls and partitions, gypsum board thermal/acoustic insulation composite panels according to EN 13950, gypsum plasterboard linings according to EN 520, gypsum boards with mat reinforcement according to EN 15283-1, gypsum fibre boards according to EN 15283-2 and other suitable products as reprocessed boards according to EN 14190 and cornices according to EN 14209. They assist in the construction of systems which provide thermal and acoustic performance.
It covers the following performance characteristics: reaction to fire, fire resistance and bond strength to be measured according to the corresponding European test methods.
It provides the assessment and verification of constancy of performance of the products.
This standard covers also additional technical characteristics that are of importance for the use and acceptance of the product by the construction Industry and the reference tests for these characteristics.
