This method is the same procedure as Method A, but measured for the thin polyester film applied to double-coated tape. Substitution of representative samples of materials in question for the standard steel panel would suffice to do this.

When testing liner side adhesion, the face side adhesive is adhered to a thin polyester film. Sign Up For Our Newsletter.

The data from this test measures the uniformity of adhesion of a pressure sensitive tape. In a face-side application, the tape is adhered to a standard steel panel or your chosen substrate in the same manner as the previous methods mention with pressure sensitive tape. The tape is peeled from the panel at 90 degree angle at a constant speed, during which time the force required to effect peel is measured.

Therefore, these test methods cannot be used to pinpoint the specific cause s of non-uniformity. A strip of tape is applied to a standard test panel that with controlled pressure from a TestResources Sample Roller.

They can help you configure the best test machine and grips for your specimens. Given specific pressure-sensitive tape and a requirement in terms of the minimum or maximum peel value expected for this tape, the data from the test can be used in conjunction with acceptance criteria. For this test we recommend that care be taken in aligning the grips to prevent the backside of the tape specimen from rubbing.


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. Remove a mm specimen of the tape to be tested.

ASTM D Peel Adhesion Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Tapes

Rated to N 50 lbf Maximum specimen thickness of 8 mm 0. The assessment may be within a roll of tape, between rolls, or between production lots.

ASTM D Test Method D provides a means of assessing the uniformity of the adhesion of a given type of pressure-sensitive adhesive tape.

Adhere the tape specimen astmm the test panel using a handheld roller. Ask for more details or tell us your test requirements. MEGA Auto Tensile Tester is professionally designed for the determination of tensile strength, peel strength, tear strength, heat seal strength and adhesiveness of r3330 films, composite films, flexible packaging materials, adhesives, adhesive tapes, pressure sensitive tapes, medical patches, protective films, release paper, rubber and paper, etc. 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.

The test materials consist of preparing several strips of tape to be tested and a hard substrate, such as a metal plate. Secure the loose end of the tape with the tab into the upper grip. Rated asstm N lbf Maximum specimen c3330 of 6 mm 0.

This software enables you to easily determine average peel force over a chosen displacement.

For ASTM D, we would configure a small capacity load cell 10 or 25 pound for this low force peel test. In a liner-side application, the transfer tape is applied to a strip of 0. This is because the measured peel force is not normalized for a fixed area of stress.


ASTM D3330 Peel Adhesion Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Tapes

These characteristics will result in a high variability for the test atm which is not a true indication of the real nature of the adhesive bond. Pneumatic grips are useful for easily aligning your specimen to reduce any rubbing issues.

The data obtained provide a means of assessing the uniformity of the adhesion of a given type of pressure-sensitive adhesive tape.

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. G Series Mechanical Vice Grip.

ASTM D3330

GK Mechanical Vice Grip. Designed to consistently apply adhesive films and sheets to testing surfaces Floating roller removes any pressure variance by the human hand Roller weight of 2. D Terminology of Packaging and Distribution Environments. 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, label stickers, medical plasters, release paper, protection films, combined caps, aluminium foil, diaphragm, back sheets, non-woven fabrics, rubber, paper, etc.

Standard sample widths of 0. For Method B, measure out several strips of the tape according to the standard. Two different tapes seldom agree in these properties. When testing face side adhesion, the double-coated tape is adhered to a stainless steel panel or your chosen substrateliner side up.

The force will be different at other peel rates.
