Adhesive Peel Force Tester - Ziegler FT-1000


Adhesive Peel Force Tester
according to FINAT and AFERA

The adhesive force testing unit ZIEGLER FT-1000 is adapted to the requirements of manufacturers and users of adhesive and self–adhesive (pressure sensitive) materials and complies with the demands of the test standards or the technical terms of delivery, the specifications of which are published by FINAT* and AFERA**.

Supports FINAT Test methods No. 1, 2, 3, 9, 10 and 11.

Operating principle: The device operates according to the principle of a horizontal pulling test device, equipped with a mobile clamp designed as sample desk and a fixed clamp equipped with a load cell.

Peel adhesion measurement of label
material (180°) at 300 mm per minute

FINAT FTM 2 (Option)
Peel adhesion measurement of label material (90°)
at 300 mm per minute

Determination of the force required to separate self–adhesive
laminates, i.e. Low speed release force (180°) at 300 mm per minute
