Texture: Measure and analyse properties

Discover the wide range of texture and physical properties that can be measured with a texture analyser.

MEASURE PEEL STRENGTH

Peel Strength measurement applications using the TA.XTplus Texture Analyser

PEEL STRENGTH is a material's ability to resist forces that can pull it apart by separating a flexible surface from a rigid surface or another flexible surface.

Peel tests are useful for a variety of products and can be performed on containers such as jars, cans, trays, packaging pouches as well as assessment of adhesive, cosmetic and medical products such tapes, bandages, wax strips etc. The most common tests are the T-peel, 90 degree peel and the 180 degree peel but different peeling angles are possible. Usually the average force per unit width and the peak force required to separate either of these two surfaces is measured.

Typical properties that can be obtained from a texture analysis graph:

Peel Strength, force to commence peeling, mean peeling force

The above are only typical examples of peel strength measurement. We can, of course, design and manufacture probes or fixtures that are bespoke to your sample and its specific measurement.

Once your measurement is performed, our expertise in its graphical interpretation is unparalleled – no-one understands texture analysis like we do. Not only can we develop the most suitable and accurate method for the testing of your sample, but we can prepare analysis procedures that obtain the desired parameters from your curve and drop them into a spreadsheet or report designed around your requirements.
