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 adhered 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.
