Adhesion Testing

Secure your reputation with Industrial Physics

Adhesion testing is the best way to determine whether your films and coatings adhere to substrates the way you need them to.  

If your coatings don’t stick, then the time spent in perfecting the design of packaging has been wasted. If you’re in construction and your steel coatings fail, you could have an expensive malfunction on your hands. If your adhesive isn’t able to successfully stick two metals,  you may need to get back to the drawing board.  

Know that your adhesion testing is up to scratch, by trusting us for your test and inspect solutions.  

Adhesion testing for coatings and films 

Invest in one of our great paint adhesion inspection machines and you’ll be able to discover the aesthetic quality of your products instantly. Our machines will let you see if the paint and treatments you select will effectively stick to your substrates and help you to determine the failure point of your adhesive – the least amount of duress that causes your product to fail a quality control check. It’s easy to carry out an adhesion test on paint when you pick one of our solutions.  

Types of adhesion testing

From pull off adhesion testing to cross cut adhesion testing, we have a range of options to help you ensure your coatings aren’t going anywhere. Just a few of the most important adhesion testing solutions we offer include:  

Pull-off adhesion testinga useful method of measuring the resistance of a coating to separation from a substrate when a perpendicular tensile force is applied. 

Cross cut adhesion testing – an easy and reliable method of determining the resistance of films to separation from substrates. 

Bond strength testing – one of the most common methods for determining the bond strength of adhesives when tested on a single-lap-joint specimen on a metal-to-metal bonded test panel. 

Industry standards for adhesion testing 

We know just how important it is to ensure that when you’re testing products, you’re using methods that meet with the common standards for your industry. That’s why we not only design our machines and solutions with those in mind, we also look ahead to the sort of standards we expect to see in the future.  

When it comes to adhesion testing, here are just a few of the popular standards our machines can help you stick to: 

  • ASTM D1002 – bond strength testing  
  • ASTM D4541 – measuring the pull-off strength of coatings 

Secure your future with Industrial Physics 

As well as offering you expert advice on the kind of adhesion testing solutions that will best suit your product line, from flexible packaging to beverages, we will support you at every step of the way.  

Our knowledgeable engineers will guide you through selection all the way to installation and will provide help with ongoing maintenance too.
