EN 15386:2007 (E) 4 1 Scope This standard specifies a method for the determination of the print adhesion on flexible laminate and plastic tubes. It is applicable to flexible laminate and plastic tubes used for packing pharmaceutical, cosmetic, hygiene, food and other household products. 2 Principle The adhesive tape test serves to gauge the adhesion properties of printing ink films on flexible laminate and plastic tubes.

The printing ink film is tested by rapidly tearing-off a previously applied adhesive tape. After the tape has been torn off, the divided surfaces are judged by pre-established criteria. 3 Apparatus An adhesive tape of commercial quality equipped with an upper surface made of tear-proof plastic and a pressure sensitive adhesive coating, of which the adhesive power is: minimum 5 N/25 mm and maximum 7 N/25 mm, tested according to Annex A against a glass testing surface. 4 Procedure

Place the printed sample on an even surface. Apply the adhesive tape on the sample and press it on manually across the length of the decoration.

It is important that there is full contact with the surface over the whole area and that no air bubbles remain between adhesive tape and sample surface. Approximately 10 s to 30 s after pressing-on, manually tear off the free end of the adhesive tape in one go from the surface at an angle of about 150 °.

Examine the divided surfaces (printing surface and reverse sid
