Significance and Use

5.1 This test method is useful for acceptance and quality control testing. Adherends, application procedure, and sample conditioning shall be as agreed upon by the manufacturer and the user of the adherends and the adhesive.


1.1 This test method covers the determination of the resistance-to-peel strength of an adhesive bond between one rigid adherend and one flexible adherend when tested at an angle of approximately 90 degrees under specified conditions of preparation and testing.

1.2 A variation in thickness of the adherends will generally influence test values. For this reason, the thickness of the adherends used to make the test specimens shall be specified in the material specification. When no thickness is specified, the flexible adherend shall be 0.60 mm (0.025 in.) thick and the rigid adherend shall be 1.60 mm (0.060 in.) thick.

Note 1: A heavy fabric, such as canvas, has been used as a flexible adherend.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

1.4 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
