Apparent Shear Strength of Single-Lap-Joint Adhesively Bonded Metal Specimens ASTM D1002

Scope: The ASTM D1002 is a standard test method for apparent shear strength of single-lap-joint adhesively bonded metal specimens by tension loading (Metal-to-Metal). This is largely a  comparison test process. It can, however, be used as a discriminator to determine differences in adherend surface preparation conditions and adhesive environmental endurance. The test method has been...

Tensile Strength of Adhesives by Means of Bar and Rod Specimens ASTM D2095

Scope: The ASTM D2095 test technique specifies the use of bar-and rod-shaped butt-joined specimens  to determine the relative tensile strength of adhesives. This test method can be used to evaluate  adhesives using a variety of adherend materials in similar or distinct combinations. Specification  acceptance, service evaluation, manufacturing control, research, and development all may benefit  from...

Peel Resistance of Adhesives (T-Peel Test) ASTM D1876

Scope: 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...

Climbing Drum Peel for Adhesives ASTM D1781

Scope: ASTM D1781 is a standard test method for determining adhesive bond peel resistance on items with a flexible adherend and a rigid adherend surface. By removing the sandwich assembly’s face,  this standard can also be used to examine the structure and core of a sandwich. The purpose is to determine how much torque is...

Nonvolatile Content of Aqueous Adhesives ASTM D1489

Scope: The nonvolatile content of aqueous adhesives such as dextrin, starch, casein, and animal gelatin is determined using the ASTM D1489 test technique. Tube winding, laminating, case and carton sealing, packing, bottle labelling, flat gumming, envelope sealing, and gummed tape manufacturing are just a few of the applications for aqueous adhesives non-volatile components.  For adhesive...

Blocking Point of Potentially Adhesive Layers ASTM D1146

Scope: The blocking point of potentially adhesive material is determined using the ASTM D1146 test procedure. Because some potentially adhesive compounds are both thermoplastic and hygroscopic, this test method allows for assessing both thermoplastic and hygroscopic blocking on the same material. Because certain criteria are more stringent than others, ASTM D1146 recognizes and defines two...

Test Methods for Viscosity of Adhesives ASTM D1084

Scope: The ASTM D1084 test method is used to determine adhesive viscosity. The adhesive’s fluid flow is also taken into account in order to suit the machine’s requirements. Viscosity is significant during the coating step because uncured adhesives react differently when “ran” across a surface. Adhesive makers usually provide the viscosity and solid content to...
