Understand some of the most common tests we use to evaluate an adhesive

  1. Tensile Shear Strength Testing A standard method for adhesive strength testing which measures the force needed to separate two bonded plates overlapped by a specific area. WATCH VIDEO
  2. Peel Strength Testing One method called the Climbing Drum Peel Test allows for the calculation of an adhesive’s peel strength under peel loading - independent of the substrate it is bonded to. WATCH VIDEO
  3. Impact Testing Testing for impact resistance includes dropping a weight from a set height onto a bonded assembly and then recording the energy absorbed. WATCH VIDEO
  4. Environmental & Durability Testing In the real world, adhesives are exposed to various temperatures, moisture levels and harsh chemicals, so we do the same to bonded assemblies in the laboratory. WATCH VIDEO
