Standard Test Method for 90 Degree Peel Resistance of Adhesives
|Publication Date:||1 December 2011|
This test method covers the determination of the resistance-to-peel strength of an adhesive bond between one rigid adherend and one flexible adherend when tested at an angle of approximately 90 degrees under specified conditions of preparation and testing.
A variation in thickness of the adherends will generally influence test values. For this reason, the thickness of the adherends used to make the test specimens shall be specified in the material specification. When no thickness is specified, the flexible adherend shall be 0.60 mm (0.025 in.) thick and the rigid adherend shall be 1.60 mm (0.060 in.) thick.
NOTE 1-A heavy fabric, such as canvas, has been used as a flexible adherend.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
