ADMET’s reliable and easy to use materials testing systems are employed by the adhesive industry to test the peel strength, bonding, and shear properties of adhesives. Our adhesive testing machines have many features specifically designed to simplify testing. For example, our testers automatically average peel strength loads over a specified distance and will report adhesive strength per unit width of adhesive.
All adhesive testing systems feature constant-rate-of-extension (CRE) and constant-rate-of-load (CRL) control which allows you to perform a wide variety of adhesive tests with only one testing machine. ADMET’s adhesive testing machines will perform your adhesive tests according to ASTM or ISO standards. We also offer a large selection of grips and fixtures specifically designed for peel and shear strength tests.
