A Model 5969 frame with self-aligning fixtures can determine the adhesion or cohesion strength of thermal spray coatings, observing ASTM C633.
For wood adhesives in wood composites, the internal bond strength test can be done with a 3300 or 5500 testing machine to determine the tensile strength.
For testing the peel or stripping strength of adhesive bonds, use manual screw or pneumatic action grips with rubber coated or smooth flat faces.
A loop tack test can be used to understand the adhesive strength of an adhesive impacted by the pressure of its application by following the EN 1719 method.
The EN 1939 method can illustrate the peel adhesion and average load of self-adhesive tapes by applying the tape and using a tensile machine to find the peel force.
The peel strength of a T-shaped bond of two flexible substances can be determined in following ISO 11339 method for self-adhesive tape.
When determining the tensile stress-strain properties of rubber, self-tightening or pneumatic side action grips can be used with long travel or video extensometers.
The strength, strain at failure, and modulus from isotropic and orthotropic fiber-reinforced plastic composites are tensile tested, following ISO 527.
With a FINAT test roller and a tensile testing machine, the peel adhesion properties of laminates can be determined, following FINAT Test Method 2.
Instron testing machines can follow ASTM D143 and find the strength parallel or perpendicular to the grain, internal bond strength, and cleavage strength for wood.
