Peel Testing Universal Testing Systems
ADMET offers a variety of peel testing machines that are ideal for measuring the peel strength of elastomers, adhesives, glues, cement, laminates, packaging, fabrics, coatings, labels, tapes, medical devices, and other products, materials, and components. With an ADMET system, you can accurately calculate the 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.
Peel strength is the average load per unit width of the bond line required to gradually separate a flexible member from a rigid member over adhered surfaces. It is calculated by measuring the average force required to peel the sample divided by the bond (i.e. adhesive) width. Peel strength is expressed in the following units: kilograms per millimeter (kg/mm) or pounds per inch (lb/in). Where
The type of peel test used to determine peel strength is based on material geometry, industry, and material applications. The angle between members varies on the type of test performed. ADMET can help determine what type of peel testing is suitable for your peel testing needs.
