Adhesive Testing

adhesive testing
Adhesive testing is performed on tapes, glues, gels, paint, and other substances to test their bonding strength.

Adhesive testing is performed on tapes, glues, gels, paint, and other substances to test their bonding strength. Testing is performed at different temperatures and is also done to determine strength and failure point of the adhesive. Bonding failure can occur due to additives added, incorrect amounts, contamination, or other product formulation issues.

Adhesives  are used to bond materials such as woods, plastics, and metals. Many standards exist to help evaluate and test adhesive strength and their properties such as: shear strength, adhesion, and viscosity. In addition, environmental affects are also tested to determine how the adhesive will behave under different circumstances. According to ASTM, “The adhesives standards are instrumental in determining various applications of adhesives such as in electrical insulation, sealing materials, and materials used in lumber products and floor systems.”
