CEN/TC 253 Self adhesive tapes

European Norm

83.180   Adhesives


This standard specifies a method to measure the elongation of a self adhesive tape when it is subjected to a tensile force sufficient to cause it to break. The elongation at break of the adhesive tape is of value as an indication if its uniformity and quality, as well as a rough indication of its ability to conform to curved and irregular surfaces. It is usually determined at the same time as the breaking strength.
