Label Adhesion Test

ASTM D3330 Standard Test Method for Peel Adhesion of Pressure-sensitive Tape

Packaging Compliance Labs provides label testing procedures that follow the ASTM D3330 label adhesive testing standards. The ASTM D3330 label testing standard can be performed on a variety of substrates depending on the requirements of your packaging.

Industry Application

This peel adhesion test evaluates the ability of a label to stay attached to a given substrate. It may be used to compare one label material to another, or a label’s ability to maintain adhesion over time through accelerated aging.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of data does label adhesion testing provide?
These test methods cover the measurement of the peel adhesion of pressure-sensitive tapes and provides a means of assessing the uniformity of the adhesion of a given type of pressure-sensitive adhesive tape.

When would label adhesion test data be useful?
These test methods are tools for quality assurance use. Given specific pressure-sensitive tape and a requirement in terms of the minimum or maximum peel value expected for the tape, the data from the test can be used in conjunction with acceptance criteria.

Which test standard does label adhesion testing fall under?
ASTM D3330, the Standard Test Method for Peel Adhesion of Pressure Sensitive Tape, can be followed when testing label adhesion.
