ASTM D6252/D6252M - 98(2011)

Standard Test Method for Peel Adhesion of Pressure-Sensitive Label Stocks at a 90° Angle

Status : Current   Published : April 2011



1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the peel adhesion of pressure-sensitive label stocks. This test method gives a measure of the adherence to a standard steel substrate or to other surfaces of interest for a pressure-sensitive label stock.

1.2 This test method provides a means of assessing the uniformity of the adhesion of a given type of pressure-sensitive label stock. The assessment may be within a sheet or roll, between sheets or rolls, or between production lots.

1.3 Variations in the label stock facestock and adhesive can affect the response; therefore, this test method cannot be used to pinpoint the specific cause(s) of nonuniformity.

1.4 This test method may not be appropriate to test label stocks having either stiff backings or backings showing a high stretch at low forces. These characteristics could result in a high variability of the test response, which is not a true indication of the real nature of the adhesive bond.

1.5 The values stated in either SI or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as the standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently, without combining values in any way.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
