Quantifying the Tape Adhesion Test
The tape adhesion test is used commonly in the Graphic Arts and Coatings Industry as a measure of the practical adhesion of inks and coatings. The results of the test are almost always judged subjectively. This paper describes a photometric method for judging the test results that allows quantitative and more detailed interpretation of tape adhesion test data.
