Staying ahead of the competition Updated Sealant and Adhesive Standards BS EN 15651 1-5:2017 and BS EN 12004 1-2:2017

Staying ahead of the competition Updated Sealant and Adhesive Standards BS EN 15651 1-5:2017 and BS EN 12004 1-2:2017

The BS EN 15651 1-5:2017 and BS EN 12004 1-2:2017 are currently being updated, and we await confirmation of their approval in the OJEU (Official Journal of the European Union). There are minor changes and improvements in these specifications which ensure procedures are clearer and diminish any ambiguity over performance requirements. We are certainly ready at 4Ward Testing to carry our any testing to the new specifications and have developed a new testing rig which gives us larger testing capacity with increased accuracy of amplitude and elongation measurements. 

With over 60 years of testing experience across a broad range of construction and manufacturing marketplaces 4ward Testing is uniquely positioned to be your testing partner.
4ward Testing’s wide range of experience has allowed us to become the only UK Notified Body for testing sealants therefore allowing our business to become the complete solution for your hEN 15651 testing needs.
