Introducing ISO 11339:2010 - Industrial Physics
International ISO 11339:2010 is a global standard for T-peel testing of adhesives used in flexible-to-flexible bonded assemblies
An effective T-peel test will reveal the peel strength of an adhesive. It does so by observing and recording peeling force applied to a T‑shaped, bonded fixture.
Peel strength tests are great for measuring the resistance of flexible adhesives to localized forces. This method was originally developed for use with metal adherends, but it works great for other flexible adherends too.
Peel strength testing to ISO 11339:2010
The most common type of stress that adhesive bonds suffer is from peel or tension forces. Which is why this ISO standard approach is so helpful for assessing how your bonded fixtures will respond to real world conditions.
To undertake peel strength testing you’ll need at least one flexible adherend. This term ‘flexible’ refers to the adherend’s ability to bend through 90° without cracking or breaking.

United Multiple Sample Test System
Test up to six samples at once and increase your testing labs productivity with the United Multi-Sample testing system. It’s not officially a universal testing machine, but has a similar purpose and works wonders with high-volume, repetitive testing of plastics, rubber, film or elastomers. It comes with three to six stations and the unique angled frame configuration makes for better, simple sample loading.
