Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This test method details the standard procedures for the determination of the comparative peel or stripping strength characteristics of adhesive bonds when tested on standard-sized specimens and under defined conditions of pretreatment, temperature, and testing machine speed. This method requires the use of a power-driven testing machine with a constant rate-of-jaw separation or of the inclination balance or pendulum type, and conditioning room or desiccator.
