This test method covers a laboratory procedure for determining the strength and characteristics of the peel properties of a cured-in-place elastomeric joint. ASTM C (C) determines the strength and characteristics of the peel properties of a cured-in-place elastomeric joint sealant, single- or multicomponent.

ASTM C C determines the strength and characteristics of the peel properties of a aastm elastomeric joint sealant, single- or multicomponent, for use in building construction.

The adhesive force that determines if a given sealant is useful in a given application also depends on the modulus of elasticity and the degree to which the sealant will be strained. We offer machines, apparatus, testers, tensile grips, test fixtures, clamps, holders, jigs, faces, jaws, extensometers, environmental and humidity chambers, furnaces, baths and custom solutions for unique applications.

Have a question about conducting the test for this standard? It is important to note that a cohesive failure is not necessarily better than an adhesive failure, if the adhesive value is sufficient for the application. The peel test is configured with a degree peel angle.


No known correlations are given to relate and apply modulus values to the peel values. Nevertheless, this test provides a valuable measurement of the ability of the cured sealant to maintain a bond to the substrate under severe peel conditions.

ASTM C – 18 Standard Test Method for Adhesion-in-Peel of Elastomeric Joint Sealants

This test, as it exists, does not consider the modulus of elasticity, nor amount of stress that will be produced by a given strain in an actual sealant in a moving joint. The values given in parentheses are provided for information only. This test is especially useful for quality measurements aastm batches of the same sealant relative to adhesion aastm for studying adhesion of a given sealant to a variety of substrates.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
