Adhesion

Adhesion testing for rubber, adhesion to flexible and rigid substrates as well as the adhesive bonding of parts are an important properties for designers to understand when evaluating materials. ARDL offers a variety of tests to evaluate the adhesion properties of materials and components. From peel or stripping strength to measurements at temperature, ARDL can provide the required specification testing on a variety of bonded systems from steel wire cord adhesion in tires to automotive and construction materials.
