Standard Test Methods for Loop Tack
|Publication Date:||10 November 1997|
|ICS Code (Adhesives):||83.180|
1.1 These test methods cover the determination of properties of a pressure-sensitive adhesive. This test method is applicable to those adhesives that form a bond of measurable strength rapidly upon contact with another surface. Tack force may be measured as the force required to separate the adhesive from the adherend at the interface shortly after they have been brought into contact under a load equal only to the weight of the pressure-sensitive article (for example, tape, label, sticker, etc.) on a 1 in. contact area.
1.2 The following test methods are included:
1.2.1 Test Method A (using Tensile Tester), and
1.2.2 Test Method B (using Loop Tack Tester).
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information purposes only.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
