Note: Nothing in this standard supercedes applicable laws and regulations.
Note: In the event of conflict between the English and domestic language, the English language shall take precedence.
Purpose. This test procedure is used to determine the average force required to physically separate one (1) of two (2) or more flat pliable layers from a laminate assembly.
Applicability. This procedure applies to laminated soft trim materials.
Remarks. This standard determines the strength required to separate two (2) soft laminated piles using a constant rate of extension at each required exposure treatment. The resulting graph, representing the strength as a function of jaw separation, is then evaluated to approximate the average laminate bond strength.
