A Model 5969 frame with self-aligning fixtures can determine the adhesion or cohesion strength of thermal spray coatings, observing ASTM C633.
In following ASTM D1335 for tuft bind testing of artificial turf, the short tufts are challenging to grip in testing the durability of the surface.
For testing the peel or stripping strength of adhesive bonds, use manual screw or pneumatic action grips with rubber coated or smooth flat faces.
Pneumatic grips can be used with testing soft tissue substrates to understand the wound closure strength of tissue adhesives, following ASTM F2458.
Adhesives, specimens to be bonded, and the method of bonding impact the bond strength of rigid-to-rigid bonds, which can be tested according to EN 1465:1994.
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.
ISO 2411 tests the coating adhesion strength of wet and dry fabrics coated with natural rubber, plastics, or synthetic rubber and works best with pneumatic grips.
Bonds between metals, plastics, and composites can be tested in tensile testing machines for the adhesive strength when perpendicular force is applied.
Tests to determine the bond strength and tensile adhesion of materials in restorative dentistry can be created using a 5900, 3300, or ElectroPuls test instrument.
With a FINAT test roller and a tensile testing machine, the peel adhesion properties of laminates can be determined, following FINAT Test Method 2.
