BOPP Tape Shear Tester

BOPP Tape Shear Tester is used to test the Static Shear or Shear Adhesion Test of Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) Tapes and Labels.

Shear Strength is a measure of the ability of PSA tape to remain adhered under a constant load applied parallel to the surface of the tape and substrate.

BOPP Packing Tapes are used to close the flaps of Corrugated Cartons. The flaps have a tendency to spring back and open up. The tape tries to hold back the flaps in position. If the shear strength of the tape is poor, it will not be able to hold on to the flaps and the end result is open cartons.

High Shear Strength = Properly closed cartons.
