New Method For Measuring The Setting Speed

WACKER has gone to great lengths to verify the fast setting speeds and excellent adhesion of VINNAPAS® EP 8010. To this end, the company’s application technology team has developed a precise new method for determining the setting speed:

Step 1:

Affix a paper strip to a modified PTS instrument

Step 2:

Next, use a roll doctor to apply adhesive evenly onto the strip and place a second layer of paper on top of this to form a bond.

Step 3:

A rod is then pulled through the bonded substrates and the delamination force measured as a function of time.
