ASTM D3330 Peel Adhesion of Pressure-Sensitive Tape

ASTM D3330 test methods are quality assurance instruments. The data from the test can be used in conjunction with acceptance criteria when given a specific pressure-sensitive tape and a requirement in terms of the minimum or maximum peel value expected for this tape. A minimum or maximum peel value data expected for a specific pressure-sensitive tape can be utilized for quality assurance.


Introduction to ASTM D3330

ASTM D3330 test methods are used to assess the uniformity of pressure-sensitive adhesive tape adhesion between rolls or production lots. Test Method A measures peel adhesion; Test Method B measures single-coated tape adherence; Test Method C measures double-coated tape adherence; and Test Method D measures the adherence of the release liner to the adhesive.

ASTM D3330 Standard Test Method

ASTM D3330 covers the measurement of the peel adhesion of pressure-sensitive tapes and may not be appropriate to test tapes having relatively stiff backings, stiff liners, or backings showing high stretch at low forces.

Test Method AThe force required to peel is measured by applying a strip of tape to a test panel and peeling it at a 180° angle in Test Method A.
Test Method BThe peel adhesion of single-coated tapes is tested in Test Method B by applying them to a rigid panel and applying them to the backing.
Test Method CIn Face adhesion, a strip of 0.025-mm thick polyester film is used to adhere double-coated tape to a stainless-steel panel, liner side up. In liner adhesion, a stainless-steel panel is used to apply double-coated tape adhesive, with the liner side up.
Test Method DThe tape is adhered to a standard steel test panel with the liner side up, and the liner is peeled from the adhesive.
Test Method EThe adhesion of adhesive transfer tapes is measured by adhering the tape to a standard panel, removing the liner, and applying the tape to a strip of polyester film.
Test Method FA strip of tape is applied to a test panel with controlled pressure, and it is peeled at a 90° angle at a specified rate.

ASTM D3330 Test Specimen

Specimen detailsTo guarantee proper reporting and comparability of test findings, specimen data, such as tape type, backing material, adhesive type, and any extra features, is documented.
Specimen dimensionsASTM D3330 specifies dimensions based on the width and length of the tape sample, which must be adhered to, to ensure consistent and reliable test results.
Specimen preparationProper specimen preparation is essential for accurate and repeatable test results, including cutting, removing backing material, and conditioning the test panels and tape samples in the standard testing environment.

ASTM D3330 Test Results

The peel adhesion test conducted according to ASTM D3330 measures the peel force required to separate pressure-sensitive tape from the test panel or substrate in units such as N/cm or lbf/in.

Other Tests Related to ASTM D3330

ASTM D3330 is related to other tests, including ASTM A 666 for austenitic stainless steel, sheet, strip, plate, and flat bar, and ASTM D 3715 for Quality Assurance of Pressure-Sensitive Tapes.
