What is The Loop Tack Test and for What Purpose It is used

The pressure-sensitive adhesives are usually applied to films, labels, tapes, and other related materials. According to ASTM D6195, it is important to take a loop tack test of the materials in order to assure their quality. Thus, we at Presto Testing Instruments have come up with one of the amazing labs known as peel adhesion/bond/seal strength tester computerized model to quantify the permanence of adhesion or peel ability of self-adhesive pressure-sensitive materials. This advanced testing machine can easily be used in different industries like adhesive tapes, double-sided tapes, and so forth.

Here in this article, we are going to provide you with brief information about peel tester and for what purpose the loop tack test will be conducted. So, let us get started!

Introduction about peel/seal/bond adhesion tester

Tack is an essential property of a material that is usually measured as the force required for breaking the adhesive bond between two surfaces. Thus, the peel adhesion bond tester will help you to study the adhesion properties of various self-adhesive materials. This instrument is meant for creating high forces that will further be used for testing and analysis purposes. The outer body of the machine was made duly powder coated and comes with the digital peak load indicator for digital readout of test results.

This high-tech lab testing instrument has been fabricated with mild steel and has been provided with the best safety features that prevent the clashing of grips. We have listed the features of the computerized model of this lab testing equipment below.

Key features of peel/seal/bond adhesion tester (digital cum computerized model)

The loop tack test will be conducted to measure the tack of adhesive tapes that have been formed into a loop. Presto peel/seal/bond adhesion tester comes with the adhesive testing properties and provides you the accurate testing results for debonding of adhesives from the surface. Below we have created a list of its features.

  • The report can be saved on the desktop
  • 10 Sample Reports can be seen on one report
  • You can easily email the test reports
  • Data can be formulated in the excel form
  • Microprocessor-based display for accurate test results
  • Display for Peel Adhesive strength of test specimen
  • Memory to hold up to 9 test reading
  • Inbuilt calibration facility
  • The graph test report will be given with Force Vs Elongation
  • Inbuilt hardware/software CD
  • Has been made in accordance with testing standards like ASTM D 903

These are the features you will get with an adhesive peel tester. We have also listed the technical specifications of this testing equipment below.

  • Standard Speed: 300 mm/min ± 5%
  • Capacity: 20 Kgf (another capacity available)
  • Least Count: 0.02 Kgf
  • Display: LED (Digital)/ Graphical

  • Inbuilt hardware & software CD

These are the technical specifications you will get with the help of this peel tester testing equipment. We are considered to be the top manufacturers of adhesion testing instruments. 

Now, let us focus on the purpose of performing the loop tack test.

The main purpose of performing loop tack test

Tack is considered to be the property of a material to test how quickly the bond will be formed when it is brought in contact with a surface with very slight pressure. In the packaging industry, with the vast use of adhesives, it is important for the manufacturers to perform the peel test to make test whether the adhesive materials will be influenced by the external force or not. This test will be conducted from different angles. Thus, you can easily perform a 180-degree peel test or 90 degrees to test the quality of materials.

The tack of the material will depend on different factors that are related to the typical roughness of the surface along with temperature and processing conditions. With the help of this lab testing equipment, you will be able to test the tack adhesiveness of materials and make sure that the product will be relevant. The loop tack tests are intended for quality control and test the ability of pressure-sensitive materials to create a bond for products. If you wish to test the adhesiveness of the pressure-sensitive materials then you can give us a call at +91 9210903903 or email us at info@prestogroup.com. Our technical team of experts will consult you regarding your queries.
