There are differences in opinion among those concerned with sealant technology whether or not this adhesion-in-peel test is intended to simulate the conditions encountered by a sealant in normal use. Nevertheless, since it represents a test to destruction, the value of the test denotes the ability of the cured sealant to maintain a bond to the substrate under severe conditions.
Many sealant manufacturers utilize the adhesion-in-peel test for determining the adhesive characteristics of sealant/primer combinations with unusual or proprietary substrates.View Less
1.1 This test method covers a laboratory procedure for determining the strength and characteristics of the peel properties of a cured-in-place elastomeric joint sealant, single- or multicomponent, for use in building construction.
1.2 The values stated in metric (SI) units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information only.
