Peel Adhesion 90 Degree Testing per FTM 2

Peel adhesion can be measured using standards provided by FINAT, an international organization promoting the self adhesive labeling industries. Specifically, peel adhesion of laminates are tested per FINAT test method 2 (FTM 2) using a 90 degree peel. The purpose of this test is to compare the adhesive response of different laminates. FTM 2 is predominately used with laminates, packaging materials for food products, and medical devices, it can also be used for coated laminates for investigating the adhesion strengths. In FTM 2, a peel test fixture is used at a test speed of 300 mm per minute (12 ipm). This method measures peel adhesion from a sample plate at a specified angle and speed.
