Summary

This test method determines the relative peel resistance of adhesive bonds between one rigid adherend and one flexible adherend. It is important to note that if there is a variation in thickness of the adherends this will influence the results. Therefore, if no thickness is specified as part of the material specification the following needs to be adhered to:

  • Flexible adherend – 0.63mm thick
  • Rigid adherend – 1.62mm thick

Test method is commonly used for:

  • Acceptance and process control testing
  • Can also be used as an alternative to ASTM Test Method D1781

*Please Note: The information outlined above is to be used as reference for ASTM D3167 Standard Test Method for Floating Roller Peel Resistance of Adhesives. Please refer to the ASTM International website for full details.
