ASTM D1876-08 T-Peel Test for Adhesives
The challenges of testing to this standard are:
- Reporting results in compliance with the standard
- Data rate used to capture peaks and troughs
- Eliminating slippage throughout the test
- Reporting results in compliance with the standard– Bluehill® Universal comes with pre-configured test methods and supporting documentation to ensure that you are testing according to ASTM D1876
- Data rate used to capture peaks and troughs – Instron’s 5900 series frames enable data capture of up to 2.5 kHz to ensure that all fast changing test events are captured. Too low of a bandwidth may “dull” the system and lead to missed peaks and troughs, resulting in lower average strength values
- Eliminating slippage throughout the test – Pneumatic grips are a great choice for T-peel testing as they are able to maintain constant gripping pressure throughout the testing. The pneumatic grips employ a patented “quick-change” jaw face design which enables operators to easily change jaw faces to accommodate the needs of their materials
It is important to review ASTM D1876-08(2015)e1 in order to fully understand the test setup, procedure, and results requirements.
