FTM-1 quantifies the permanence of adhesion or peelability of self-adhesive pressure sensitive materials. Peel adhesion is the force required to remove pressure sensitive coated material, which has been applied to a standard test plate under specified conditions from the plate at a specified angle and speed. Test strips should be 25 mm wide and have a minimum length of 175 mm in the machine direction. Remove the backing material from each strip and place the adhesive coated facing material, adhesive side down, on to a clean test plate using light finger pressure and follow sample preparation procedures. Fix the test plate and strip in the machine so that the angle of peel is 180
