Peel Testing Universal Testing Systems
An ADMET material testing system is ideal for measuring the peel, tear, and friction properties of elastomers, adhesives, glues, cements, laminates, packaging, fabrics, coatings, labels, tapes, medical devices, and other products, materials, and components. With an ADMET system, you can accurately calculate average peel strength load over a specified distance and strength per unit width of adhesive. All adhesive testing systems feature constant-rate-of-extension (CRE) and constant-rate-of-load (CRL) control which allows you to perform a wide variety of adhesive tests with only one testing machine.
Common peel testing definitions and keywords include:
- Peel strength: The average load per unit width of bond line required to gradually separate a flexible member from a rigid member over adhered surfaces. The angle between members varies with the type of peel test (T-peel, 90-degree peel, 180-degree peel, floating roller, or climbing drum). Peel strength measurements are expressed in kilograms per millimetre or pounds per inch of width.
Common peel testing standards include:
