Laboratory: Documented Quality

The quality of our self-adhesive packaging tapes is thoroughly tested in our own laboratory, following the guidelines of internationally approved test methods. We have also developed special practical trials. In order to provide full documentation we work with reference numbers that enable us to trace the finished product down to its raw materials. Our most important tests:

  • Adhesion Strength Test
    Measured is the so called "adhesion value on steel", the force required to remove an adhesive tape with a specific width under defined conditions (unwinding-angle, pressure, speed) from a standard metal surface. 

  • Tack (Immediate Adhesion) Test
    A test method called "rolling ball" defines the tack (immediate adhesion) of an adhesive tape. Measured is the distance in centimeter that a ball rolls on the adhesive side of the tape before it remains stuck.
  • Shear Strength Test
    Shear strength indicates how long an adhesive tape sticks to a cardboard surface when weighed down vertically by a defined force. The longer the tape sticks, the higher its shear strength. Thus you can see that for example natural rubber adhesive shows a higher shear strength than Hotmelt or acrylic adhesives.

  • Cardboard Test
    This test was developed over 30 years ago. It is an inherent part of the monta verification process: the adhesive tape is applied to a recycling cardboard that is put under extreme tension. The test shows if the tape can be sheared off or if the cardboard will open. The test takes place in a heated room under extreme conditions.
