Constant 90 degree peel tests are typically performed with sled fixtures, which are driven by wires and pulleys that must be aligned in an exactly perpendicular manner. The adhesive industry uses this method because the fixtures are relatively cheap and easy to use. This application study describes a constant 90 degree peel test that use the TA.XTPlus Texture Analyzer and the Automated Linear Indexing System which both work in unison to eliminate any mechanical issues with peel testing and is extremely easy to use.
