    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1These test methods test the ability of adhesive films to inhibit or support the growth of selected fungal species growing on agar plates by providing means of testing the films on two agar substrates, one which promotes microbial growth, and one which does not.

    1.2These test methods are not appropriate for all adhesives. The activity of certain biocides may not be demonstrated by these test methods as a result of irreversible reaction with some of the medium constituents.

    Note 1:As an example, quaternary ammonium compounds are inactivated by agar.

    1.3A test method is included for use with low-viscosity adhesives along with an alternative method for use with mastic-type adhesives. Also, a method approved by the government is given.

    1.4The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.5This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. These test methods are designed to be used by persons trained in correct microbiological techniques. Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 7 and in 14.3.2.

    1.6This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
