Measuring the peel or stripping strength of adhesive bonds allows for the determination of the comparative peel or stripping characteristics of adhesive bonds when tested on standard sized specimens and under defined conditions of pretreatment, temperature, and testing machine speed. This is a tensile test of either flexible or rigid material, where specimens are 25 mm (1 inch) wide. Typical results include average load divided by specimen width.
