Standards

ASTM D3330

Introducing ASTM D3330 - Industrial Physics 

ASTM D3330 is an ASTM international standard for peel testing and adhesion testing 

When you need to assess the uniformity of the adhesion of a pressure-sensitive adhesive tape, ASTM D3330 is the guiding technical standard for quality assurance. 

The ASTM D3330 testing process  

Whether you are working with a roll of tape, between rolls, or between production lots, ASTM D3330 provides five test methods (A, B, C and D) to follow. A short description of each follows:  

  • ASTM D3300 test method A is an adhesion testing process that measures the adherence of a single coated tape to a standard steel panel, or another surface, when peeled at a 180° angle 
  • ASTM D300 test method B is an adhesion testing process that measures the adherence from the backing of a single-coated tape. 
  • ASTM D300 test method C is an adhesion testing process that measures the adherence of a double-coated tape to a standard steel panel, or another surface. 
  • ASTM D300 test method D is an adhesion testing process that measures the adherence of the release liner to the adhesive of a single, or double-coated, tape. 
  • ASTM D300 test method E is an adhesion testing process that measures the adherence of an adhesive transfer tape to a standard steel panel, or another surface. 
  • ASTM D300 test method F is an adhesion testing process that measures the adherence of a single-coated tape to a standard steel panel or another surface, when peeled at 90° angle.  

ASTM D3330 testing devices  

So, how can Industrial Physics improve your ASTM testing? 

Several Industrial Physics machines and devices are built to support adhesion testing and peel testing procedures to ASTM D3330 standards. Here are some of the most popular: 

The TMI 32-76e Coefficient Friction (CoF) /Peel Tester 

 

The 32-76e gives you unparalleled performance and flexibility when peel testing and adhesion testing 

 

With horizontal bed COF functionality it’s the definitive method for measuring static and dynamic coefficient of friction across a wide range of paper, corrugated, flexible films, rigid plastics and other engineered surfaces. The device uses a load cell and a pulling motion to effortlessly separate two-sided tapes. 

 

The 32-76e can also be used for heat seal applications and helps you to achieve a wide range of standards, including ASTM D3330.

Universal test machines (UTMs) 

 

One of our industry-leading UTMs will give you complete control over your peel testing or adhesion testing to ASTM standards.  

 

Set any critical test parameter to meet the ASTM standard you’re working towards: from test speed to crosshead displacement - and calculations such as peak / average force or average. Any of these inspections can be set and controlled using our software-controlled devices, which come in a variety of models to suit a wide range of products and test scenarios.  

 

An Industrial Physics UTM is easy to use and understand - displaying and storing clear graphical test data that’s simple to retrieve for future access and export to other applications or a printer.
