Significance of Peel Strength Tester in the Packaging Industry

Significance of Peel Strength Tester in the Packaging Industry

In the packaging industry, there is a vast use of adhesives, coatings, and laminates that is helpful in packaging the material firmly. But, have you ever thought of what would happen if the materials will be lost their peeling capability after some time. It will definitely destroy your package, right? Thus, we have come up with one of the most useful testing equipment known as Peel / Seal / Bond and Adhesion Strength Tester. This is one of the amazing testing instruments that will be used to quantify the permanence of adhesion or peel ability of self-adhesive materials. Here in this article, we are going to provide you the information about the role this lab testing equipment plays in the packaging industry. But, before that, we will discuss the brief information about the Peel strength tester.

Introduction about peel strength tester

The peel strength tester is one of the highly advanced testing equipment designed by the experts at Presto Testing Instruments. This is one of the amazing testing equipment that can be used in various industries and testing laboratories to test the peel ability of certain materials. This testing instrument is capable of producing the force which will give you precise analysis of the adhesive strength of the testing specimen. This lab testing equipment has enough force that can give a precise and accurate analysis of the adhesive strength of the test specimen. The instrument is best for quality analysis of materials and products in QC labs as well as mainstream production chains. The instrument comes with no slippage grips for firm clamping of the test specimen.

The main purpose of using this lab testing equipment is to study the adhesion properties of various self-adhesive materials. The instrument is meant for creating high forces that are further used for various testing and analysis. The instrument is provided with a limit switch which acts as a safety feature for the machine and limits the movement of grips of the machine.

The outer body of this lab testing equipment is fabricated with mild steel which is duly powder coated. There is a digital peak load indicator provided with the instrument for a digital readout of the test results. The limit switch provided with the instrument is one of the best safety features that prevent the clashing of the grips. You can easily read about how you can give your packaging strong peel strength by testing it with a peel strength tester.

Key features of Peel strength tester

This highly advanced testing equipment is filled with an advanced set of features that will make it easy for you to conduct the test. With the help of this lab testing equipment, you can perform accurate tests on materials like BOP tapes, pressure-sensitive tapes, etc.

Role of Presto peel adhesion tester in the packaging industry

The peel adhesion tester from Presto Testing Instruments plays a significant role in the packaging industry as it will thoroughly test the pressure-sensitive ability of the material. When you conduct the test with the help of Presto Testing Instrument then you can easily test the adhesive properties of materials at the best prices. The peel tester will not only help in testing your product performance but also process the parameters throughout the life cycle of the product.

You can easily prepare the sample for the peel adhesion test by taking the strip of the self-adhesive tape that is 150 mm long and 15 mm wide. Take a strip of self-adhesive by preparing the specimen as per the template provided with the machine. Now dip one end of the strip into a toluene solution up to 25 mm. This will delaminate that area of the strip. Now you will have two ends of the strip that need to be placed in between the grips for testing. In this way, you can test the specimen and get accurate testing results.
