Standard Practice for Determining the Adhesion of Prints and Laminating Films
|Publication Date:||10 January 2003|
This practice covers procedures for printing a document, applying a laminating film and subsequently delaminating. The laminate film is used for encapsulating and mounting prints to preserve them in office and outdoor environments.
This practice describes procedures for determining the adhesion strength of lamination film when it is applied to black and white and color prints produced by printers, copiers and other reprographic devices.
This practice can be used to test different laminates with a given set of inks and media or it can be used to evaluate inks and media with a given laminate.
This practice specifies size of specimens and defines conditions for measurement of peel adhesion at a 180° angle and delamination speed.
This practice is applicable to constructions where the substrate surface is subject to failure under peel conditions.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
