Abstract : Peel testing of adhesives has not been extensively evaluated using analytical methods. Current test methods cannot discriminate between the work required to deform the adherend and the work needed to fail the adhesive. In some cases, the work required to bend the adherend is much greater than that required for adhesive failure. Further complications arise from inconsistent failure modes. Each of these circumstances can result in invalid or meaningless data. The objective of this investigation was to evaluate and improve the Floating Roller Peel Test (ASTM D3167) to enhance the accuracy and significance of the test results and to develop an analytical technique for calculating the work required to deform the adherend. Keywords: Floating Roller Peel, Adhesive, Adherend, Peel strength, Adherend stiffness, Bond strength, Elastic, Plastic, Rigid, Flexible, Failure Mode.
