Understanding Adhesion Strength: 180 Degree Peel Test

Mecmesin - On-demand event
Moses Da Rocha

Across many households and industries, consumers have developed a strong preference for and confidence in ‘Duct Tape’ for all types of uses and applications. This is mainly due to the adhesion strength.

This webinar with live testing will focus on 180 Degree Peel testing, which is one of the most common approaches to measuring the adhesion or bonding strength of adhesives. Labels, Pressure Sensitive Tapes and other adhesive-backed materials are usually tested using this method in accordance with ASTM-D3330 to ensure they meet production and quality standards. This type of testing can be found in industries like packaging, medical, automotive, leather and upholstery, food and beverage and many more.
