Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

This document was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 61, Plastics, Subcommittee SC 11,

Products.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 29863:2007) of which it constitutes a

minor revision.
The changes compared to the previous edition are as follows:
— the Introduction has been revised to remove outdated information;
— the normative references in Clause 2 have been updated;

— the definition of “shear adhesion” has been revised and a definition has been added for “self adhesive

tape” in Clause 3;
— a Bibliography has been added;

3.1
shear adhesion

resistance of the pressure sensitive adhesive against shear when static forces are exerted parallel to

the bonding surface
Note 1 to entry: It is expressed as the time to failure under constant load.
3.2
self adhesive tape
pressure sensitive adhesive

adhesive which in a dry state is permanently tacky at room temperature and adheres readily to surfaces

under brief and light pressure
4 Significance and use

These test methods are tools for quality control use. Given specific self adhesive tape and a requirement

in terms of the minimum or maximum value expected for this tape, the data from the test can be used

in conjunction with acceptance criteria.

These methods provide a means of assessing the uniformity of the adhesive of a given type of pressure-

sensitive tape (an example are tapes used for packaging applications). The assessment may be within a

roll of tape, between rolls or production lots.

Variations in the tape backing and adhesive affect the results, therefore, these methods cannot be used

to pinpoint the specific cause(s) of non-uniformity.

These test methods may not provide design information as there is usually no direct relationship

between shear adhesion and any functional requirement.
5 Method A: Measurement of shear adhesion to a vertical standard steel panel
5.1 Principle

Method A measures the shear adhesion of a self adhesive tape to a standard steel panel by its time to

failure at 23 °C and 50 % relative humidity (RH) under constant load.

Shear adhesion to standard steel panel – A strip of tape is applied to a standard steel panel under

controlled roll down. The panel is mounted vertically, a standard mass is attached to the free end of the

tape and the time to failure is determined.
5.2 Materials

5.2.1 Absorbent cleaning material, surgical gauze, cotton wool or tissue. To be suitable, materials

shall be lint free during use, absorbent, contain no additives that are soluble in the solvents listed in 5.2.2

and made exclusively from virgin materials.
5.2.2 One or more of the following solvents:
— diacetone alcohol (4-hydroxy-4-methyl-2-pentanone) non–residual grade;
— methanol;
— methyl ethyl ketone;
— acetone;
— n-heptane;

---------------------- Page: 14 ----------------------
SIST EN ISO 29863:2019
ISO 29863:2018(E)

— a mixture of n-heptane and a fluorinated hydrocarbon such as refrigerant (suitable when toxicity or

flammability restrictions apply).

Solvents shall be of general purpose chemical grade and held in a suitable dispensing system.

5.3 Apparatus
5.3.1 Typical shear adhesion tester
See Figure 1 for a typical shear adhesion tester.
5.3.2 Test piece cutter

A test piece cutter shall hold two single edge razor blades in parallel planes a precise distance apart, to

form a cutter of exact specimen width; two cutters, 12 mm and 24 mm cutting width, shall be available

or appropriate alternatives which will not cause edge damage. The precision of the razor blade

separation shall be the nominal width ±0,1 mm.
5.3.3 Stainless steel panels

These shall be perfectly flat, at least 125 mm long and 50 mm wide and at least 1,1 mm thick, stainless

steel type 1.4301 in accordance with the 2 R quality defined in EN 10088-2, having a bright annealed

finish with a surface roughness of 50 nm ± 25 nm. Panels showing stains, discoloration or many

scratches are not acceptable. New panels shall be cleaned prior to use as described in 5.5.2 except with

ten washes of the final solvent. Between uses the panel test surface shall be protected from scratches

and contamination and the panels shall be stored in the conditions described in 5.5.2.

5.3.4 Roller mechanically or hand operated

5.3.4.1 A steel roller 85 mm ± 2,5 mm in diameter and 45 mm ± 1,5 mm in width, covered with rubber

approximately 6 mm in thickness, having a Shore A durometer hardness of 80 ± 5. The surface shall be a

true cylinder, void of any convex or concave deviations. The mass of the roller shall be 2 kg ± 0,1 kg.

5.3.4.2 No part of the apparatus shall increase the mass of the roller during use. The roller shall move

either mechanically or by hand at the rate of 10 mm/s ± 0,5 mm/s.
5.3.5 Test stands and ancillary apparatus
5.3.5.1 Test stand

A test stand that shall hold the test panel, with tape applied, at an angle between 0° and 2° from the

vertical, so that when the mass is acting on the test specimen, no peel force will be exerted on the tape.

5.3.5.2 Clamps

Clamps that will allow the attachment of the mass to the specimen, distributing the load equally across

the tape specimen width.
5.3.5.3 Test masses

The test mass shall be 1 000 g ± 5 g or other mass as specified. The mass of the clamp described in

5.3.5.2 shall be included as part of the total mass.
