How to prepare a sample for the bond strength test?

The bond strength test is one of the crucial tests performed to test the durability and integrity of adhesive bonds that occur between two adhesive materials. By subjecting the bonded samples to controlled tension or shear forces, manufacturers can easily test the integrity of samples when the maximum adhesive bond is applied to them. By subjecting the samples to controlled tear forces, manufacturers can easily assess the bond strength of the materials and ensure that accurate products will be delivered to the customers.

Thus, with the Presto bond strength tester, manufacturers can easily test the bond strength of the materials when the maximum load is applied on the sample which leads to failure of the bonded surface.

In this blog, we will discuss brief information about how you can easily prepare the sample for the Peel strength test so that you will get highly accurate lab testing results. We will also discuss brief information about the Peel strength tester and its high-quality features and technical specifications that make it a widely used testing instrument in the packaging industry. So, let us get started!

What is a bond strength test and how Presto bond strength tester can help to perform this test?

Bond strength testing is a crucial procedure used to determine the strength and durability of adhesive bonds between two materials. This testing method is widely used in various industries including the paper and packaging industry. Thus, using an adhesive bond strength testermanufacturers can easily perform bond strength tests on the materials and ensure that they will not fail in between shipping and transportation.

This bond strength testing instrument is ideal for measuring the tear, peel and other adhesive properties of the materials. To perform this test using this quality testing equipment, manufacturers can place the sample on a metal plate with an adhesive strip specimen on it.

The specimen should be placed in such a way that it makes a 180-degree angle with the direction of peeling of the specimen. It is important to place the specimen correctly on this testing instrument.

You can easily test the bond strength between substrates with the help of this quality lab testing equipment. 

Now, let us discuss the features and technical specifications of this quality testing equipment.

Now, let us discuss some useful steps for preparing samples for the Bond Strength Test.

Steps for Preparing Samples for Bond Strength Test

  • Take a strip of the sample with a width of 15 mm or 25 mm.
  • Now take an 1800 fixture plate with a smooth texture and place one end of the sample strip with adhesive on the metal plate leaving the other end free.
  • Press the specimen on the plate with slight pressure. The metal plate will be fixed on the lower movable grip and the free end of the sample will be placed on the upper grip.
  • Your Specimen for the bond adhesion test is ready.

In this way, you can easily prepare the samples for the bond strength test.
