Having adhesive failure allows one to study the change of adhesion with time and with the various stress conditions.

ASTM C794 Adhesion-in-Peel Elastomeric Joint Sealants Test Equipment

The values given in parentheses are provided for information only. The adhesive force that determines if a given sealant is useful in a given application also depends on the modulus of elasticity and the degree to which the sealant will be strained.

ASTM C C determines the strength and characteristics of the peel properties of a cured-in-place elastomeric joint sealant, single- or multicomponent, for use in building construction.

This test is especially useful for quality measurements comparing batches of the same sealant relative to adhesion or for studying adhesion of a given sealant to a variety of c974.


This test, as it exists, does not consider the modulus of elasticity, nor amount of stress that will be produced by a given strain in an actual sealant in a moving joint.

ASTM C – 18 Standard Test Method for Adhesion-in-Peel of Elastomeric Joint Sealants

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of aatm standard. The peel test is configured with a degree peel angle. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

By means of our testing expertise and modular product design, we will help find the solution that is right for you. We are confident that we have what you are looking for.

It is important to note that a cohesive failure is not necessarily better than an adhesive failure, 7c94 the adhesive value is sufficient for the application. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

ASTM C Adhesion-in-Peel Elastomeric Joint Sealants Test Equipment

ASTM C addresses silicone sealant joints in concrete construction. We offer machines, apparatus, testers, tensile grips, test fixtures, clamps, holders, jigs, faces, jaws, extensometers, environmental and humidity chambers, furnaces, baths and custom solutions for unique applications.


G Series Pneumatic Grip. Rated to N lbf Maximum specimen thickness of 6 mm 0.

No known correlations are given to relate and apply modulus values to the peel values. Nevertheless, this test provides a valuable measurement of the ability of the cured sealant to maintain a bond to the substrate under severe peel conditions.

Forces up to 10 kN 2, lbf Low force tabletop systems Modular asstm of five frame options with adjustable test space Affordable testing option for tension, compression, bend, peel and much more. Link to Active C7944 link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
