Example of a 90° peel test

Peel testers, or peel test machines, are universal test machines specially configured to determine the adhesive peel strength or the strength of the adhesive bond between two materials. The test results are critical to our customers, therefore, we make sure our peel testers are optimized to each customer’s individual testing needs.

Selecting a Peel Test Machine

Your first step to choosing the correct peel tester is to determine your specimen geometry, size and strength characteristics. Armed with this information our applications engineer can identify the test machine capacity and peel test fixtures needed to pull your sample. The next step is to decide the test data you want which will help confirm the best controller and test software for your test.

100 Series Modular Peel Tester

Type:
Electromechanical
Max Force:
1 kN (225 lbf)

A modular tabletop series ideal for the most common types of peel tests which measure adhesive strength, including T-peel, 90° peel, and the 180° peel.

200 Series Single Column Peel Tester

Type:
Electromechanical
Max Force:
5 kN (1,125 lbf)

A compact and lightweight solution for higher travel and faster speeds up to 2,500 mm/min (100 ipm).

 

Series Type Force Range
100 Series Electromechanical Up to 10 kN (2,250 lbf)
200 Series Electromechanical Up to 5 kN (1,125 lbf)

Due to our modular machine design, your peel test machine can also be equipped to perform other applications such as tensile, cyclic, shear, flexure, bend, compression, and tear by adding appropriate fixtures.
