PEEL STRENGTH is a
material's ability to resist forces that can pull it apart by
separating a flexible surface from a rigid surface or another
Peel tests are useful for a
variety of products and can be performed on containers such as jars,
cans, trays, packaging pouches as well as assessment of adhesive,
cosmetic and medical products such tapes, bandages, wax strips etc.
The most common tests are the T-peel, 90 degree peel and the 180
degree peel but different peeling angles are possible. Usually the
average force per unit width and the peak force required to separate
either of these two surfaces is measured.
properties that can be obtained from a texture analysis graph:
Peel Strength, force to
commence peeling, mean peeling force.
The above are only typical
examples of peel strength
measurement. We can, of course, design and manufacture probes or
fixtures that are bespoke to your sample and its specific measurement.
Once your measurement is
performed, our expertise in its graphical interpretation is
unparalleled no-one understands texture analysis like we do.
Not only can we develop the most suitable and accurate method for the
testing of your sample, but we can prepare analysis procedures that
obtain the desired parameters from your curve and drop them into a
spreadsheet or report designed around your requirements.
