Peel Resistance of Adhesives (T-Peel Test) ASTM D1876
Using a T-type specimen, the ASTM D1876 test method is designed to determine the relative peel resistance of adhesive connections between flexible adherents. The T-peel test is the most extensively used peel test since it only employs one layer of metal.
The T-peel test (ASTM D1876) determines how much force is needed to gradually separate two bound, flexible adherents. Peel tests intended for flexible adhesives are designed to measure resistance to highly localized stresses. A peel test also measures a material’s adhesive strength of the adhesive bonding strength between two materials. The T-peel test is commonly used to assess adhesively bonded systems’ surface treatments and environmental endurance.
Variations in test specimen preparation, such as adhesive curing, adhesive thickness, adherents, and conditioning, reveal opportunities for process and application improvement
According to ASTM D1876, the test specimen’s bent, unbonded ends are gripped in the tension testing machine’s test grips. A steady head speed of 254 mm (10 in.)/min is used to attach the load. The bond will separate at a rate of 127 mm (5 in.) per minute at this speed. During the peel test, an autographic recording of load vs head movement or load versus distance peeled is made. After that, the peel resistance of the bond line for at least a 127-mm (5-in.) length after the initial peak is determined.
As per ASTM D1876, specimens are cut from a T-peel panel to 25.4 mm (1.0 in) long * 300 mm (12 in) wide.
Peel load is reported in pounds per inch of the specimen width required to separate the adherents.
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etches solution used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
