ASTM D3167 Peel Test Panels

ASTM D3167 Peel Test Panels

Test panels used in ASTM D3167 (Floating Roller Peel Resistance of Adhesives). This test uses a rigid adherend and a flexible adherend to determine the relative peel resistance of adhesive bonds. These adherends are also called test panels or specimens. When the two adherends are bonded together with the test adhesive, they're referred to as laminated test panels. ASTM D3167 recommends using 2024-T3 clad aluminum. One of the test panels is 3" x 10.2"; the other is 3" x 8.25". Customized test panels for modified versions of this test method are available on request.
