ASTM D E3330 Method D provides a means of e3330 the uniformity of the adhesion of a given type of pressure-sensitive adhesive tape. Adhere the tape specimen onto the test panel using a handheld roller. This test also measures peel adhesion with a degree peel. Place the panel into the peel test machine grips and peel back 22 mm of the bottom half of the tape sample so that the specimen is doubled over itself at degrees.

Although we can provide you with guidance, we recommend you purchase and closely follow the ASTM International testing standard. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Now apply a strip of the tape to a rigid panel, such as the standard stainless steel panel.

We offer machines, apparatus, testers, tensile grips, test fixtures, clamps, holders, jigs, faces, jaws, extensometers, axtm and humidity chambers, furnaces, baths and custom solutions for unique applications. Sign Up For Our Newsletter.

This method is the same procedure as Method A, but measured for the thin polyester film applied to double-coated tape.

XLW PC Auto Tensile Tester XLW PC Auto Tensile Tester can be used to determine physical mechanical properties of asstm films, laminated materials, flexible packaging materials, plastic flexible tube, adhesives, adhesive tapes, pressure sensitive tapes, and adhesive bandage plaster etc.

These simple and effective grips have 30mm wide jaws, perfect for the majority of sample sizes. Need help or have a question? Rated to N lbf Maximum specimen thickness of 6 mm 0. G Series Pneumatic Grip. Have a question about conducting the test for this standard? ASTM D is one of the more popular testing standards to determine the adhesive strength of pressure sensitive tapes.

ASTM D / DM – 04() Standard Test Method for Peel Adhesion of Pressure-Sensitive Tape

For ASTM D, we would configure a small capacity load cell 10 or 25 pound for this low force peel test. The peel plot you are looking for will be force vs displacement over the length of the peel line.

XLW M Auto Tensile Tester XLW M Auto Ast Tester is designed for the test of physical mechanical properties of plastic films, laminated materials, flexible packaging materials, plastic flexible tube, adhesives, adhesive tapes, pressure sensitive tapes, and adhesive bandage plaster etc.

A strip of tape is applied to a standard test panel that with controlled pressure from a TestResources Sample Roller. Labthink has more than 50 international distributors and more than 30 international service providers.

For this test we recommend that care be taken in aligning the grips to prevent the backside of the tape specimen from rubbing.

This is because the measured peel force is not normalized for a fixed area of stress. GK Mechanical Vice Grip. MEGA Auto Tensile Tester is professionally designed for the determination of tensile strength, peel strength, tear strength, heat seal strength and adhesiveness of plastic films, composite films, flexible packaging materials, adhesives, adhesive tapes, pressure sensitive tapes, medical patches, protective films, release paper, rubber and paper, etc.

The plate is placed horizontally into the test machine and the free end of the tape is grasped in the machine grips. If this occurs, the friction of that touching will cause errors in the peel force data.

Therefore, these test methods cannot be used to pinpoint the specific cause s of non-uniformity.

The tape is then pulled from the plate at a degree angle at a specified rate, and peel adhesion is measured. A key issue that many people encounter when testing degree peel tests to ASTM D, is that both sides of the adhesive specimen can accidentally rub together during testing.

The liner is removed and a 0. The data obtained provide a means of assessing the e3330 of the adhesion of a given type of pressure-sensitive adhesive tape.

About Us Contact Us. For Method B, measure out several strips of the tape according to the standard. Secure the loose end of the tape with the tab into the upper grip. The peel adhesion of the liner is measured using a degree peel test.


ASTM D3330 Peel Adhesion Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Tapes

Two different tapes seldom agree in these properties. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory astk prior to use.

The force will be different at other peel rates. This software enables you to easily determine average peel force over a chosen displacement. XLW Auto Tensile Tester XLW Auto Tensile Tester is applicable to the determination of physical mechanical properties of plastic films, laminated materials, flexible packaging materials, plastic flexible tube, adhesives, adhesive tapes, pressure sensitive tapes, adhesive bandage plasterrelease paper, protective films, flip off cap, foil, diaphragm, back sheet, non-woven, rubber, and paper fiber, etc.

The assessment may be asstm a roll of tape, between rolls, or between production lots. These characteristics will result in a high variability for the test response which is not a true indication of the real nature of the adhesive bond.

The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents, therefore, each system must be used independently without combining values in any way.

XLW EC Auto Tensile V3330 XLW EC Auto Tensile Tester can be used to measure tensile, peeling, deformation, tearing, heat sealing, adhesive, puncture force, opening force and low speed unwrapping force as well as other performance of plastic films, composite materials, soft package materials, plastic flexible tube, adhesives, adhesive tape, astk stickers, medical plasters, release paper, protection films, combined caps, aluminium foil, diaphragm, back sheets, non-woven fabrics, rubber, paper, etc.

ASTM D Method F measures the adherence of single-coated tapes to a standard steel panel or your chosen substrate when peeled at a 90 degree angle. When testing liner side adhesion, the face side adhesive e3330 adhered to a thin polyester film. The liner is removed and the exposed adhesive covered with a strip of thin polyester film.

In this test a strip of zstm is applied to a rigid substrate and then another strip of tape is applied to the backing of the first strip, then tested for peel adhesion. Other sample widths available upon request Effective and simple to use Blade replacement takes mere seconds.
