Adhesives Testing Instruments
The Loop Tack Fixture [TT-LTF-100] measures the tack (instant grip) of the sample by lowering the looped material until it makes contact with a stainless steel plate and then measuring the force required to release the sample. The plate is attached with a tab that is placed in the lower grip. The Loop Tack Fixture clamps in the lower jaws of the tensile testing machine and provides a simple means for performing a loop tack testing.
Meet Standards for Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Tapes:
- ASTM D6195
- FINAT FTM 9
- PSTC 16 Loop Tack
This Coefficient of Friction Tester (COF) / Peel Tester can measure static and kinetic coefficient of friction as well as run seal strength tests, 180° peel, 90° peel, and T-peel tests. The FP-2260 also offers a tensile test mode to perform lightweight tensile tests up to 10 kg (22 lbf).
Its small bench top design makes the FP-2260 light weight allowing it to be used in a laboratory or setup out on the production floor for offline testing as needed.
Plastic film, paper, paperboard, adhesives, labels and packaging materials are ideally tested with the FP-2260.
Replaces the FP225-1, FP-2255 and FP-2250
The heated platen allows for testing at elevated temperatures. Ideal for plastic film testing. Its small bench top design makes the FP-2260 light weight allowing it to be used in a laboratory or setup out on the production floor for offline testing as needed.
Temperature range from:
(70F to 350F)
Plastic film, adhesives, labels and packaging materials are ideally tested with the FP-2260 heated platen option.

Thwing-Albert's QC Electronic Materials Testers provide quality solutions and have earned a well-deserved reputation as an easy-to-use, dependable testing platform. The QC-3A upholds the standards of the QC line while adding the functionality of a RS-232 interface, a digital load controller and enhanced software. Ideal for tensile, compression, coefficient of friction and peel analysis, the QC-3A is an extremely flexible, cost-effective testing system. The single-screw frame provides up to 1100 lbs (5kN/500 kg) tensile force with extremely accurate control throughout the entire load range. The digital load controller ensures extremely accurate, reliable test data.
Perform 180 peel tests according to ASTM D3330 and other industry standards using this fixture designed for universal testing machines. Consists of 9" x 2" polished stainless steel plate which is clamped in a lower grip. One end of the sample is adhered to the plate and the other end is clamped in place by the upper grip. The sample is peeled off of the plate and the strength is measured.
