Standard Test Method for Adherence to Linerboard of Pressure-Sensitive Tape at Low Temperature

Significance and Use

Satisfactory tape performance at the test temperature implies satisfactory cold-temperature performance at or above the test temperature.

This procedure would be applicable for questions of adherence to 100 % kraft fiberboards similar to the standard linerboard surface without substitution but for direct information on any board or surface, the actual surface in question should be substituted.


1.1 This test method covers one procedure for determining the adherence of pressure-sensitive tapes to a standard linerboard or other similar surface.

1.2 This test method provides for an attribute response (pass or fail) and does not yield numerical data on a variable or continuous scale.

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

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.
