Adhesion Testing Insights

It can be a sticky subject for your business if your testing processes are not up to scratch. So you’ll be pleased to hear that the Industrial Physics team can help you with all of your adhesion testing needs.

It’s a type of test that covers a broad category of tension and compression testing for many types of materials, used across many industries. Adhesion testers generally focus on the bond strength between two materials, created with some type of coating such as tape, glue, or gels.

 

United Testing Systems is our global manufacturer of materials testing equipment. They’ve got lots of adhesion testing solutions for when you need to measure the application of applying tension or compression loads.

Some of the common standards are listed below. And United can help you to meet or exceed all of them, so get in touch today!

United’s Universal Test Machines can help you with these and many other Adhesive testing standards
