$ 68.00 In stock

Significance and Use

This test method is designed to show the adhesion of a pressure-sensitive tape to fiberboard when the tape is under a constant stress. Test data from this test method for some types of packaging tape relates to tape performance on fiberboard box closure.

Procedure A should be used when comparing tapes to an established requirement. The requirement may be established using either the standard linerboard or another linerboard representing a specific fiberboard.

Procedure B should be used to rank tapes as to their ability to adhere to fiberboard.


1.1 This test method covers the determination of the property of adhesion of pressure-sensitive tape to a fiber-board surface. The user of this test method has the option of choosing the paper surface for the test. The test surface may be the standard linerboard, another linerboard (or paper) of individual interest, or a specific fiberboard.

1.2 The values stated in either SI or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently, without combining values in any way.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
