Adhesive Technical Services
offers a fully independent laboratory testing service
for adhesives, tapes and labels.
Tests are carried out to industry standard methods,
such as FINAT, AFERA, PSTC, PSMA and ASTM. Testing is
also undertaken to product specifications, such as automotive,
M.O.D. etc. Specific tests can be developed for individual
product applications, or to investigate performance
We offer testing to BS5609, the standard for chemical
drum labels, with tests carried out at our own marine
exposure site on the Essex coast.
A range of environmental ageing tests can be undertaken,
including resistance to low and high temperatures, UV
light, humidity and water.
Quality Control testing can be undertaken on a contract
basis, with results supplied swiftly, enabling customers
to make decisions on the use or despatch of materials.
In partnership with other laboratories, we offer a
range of analytical tests, plus testing related to print,
ink and coatings on label materials.
All tests are carried out by fully trained and experienced
personnel, using up to date specialist laboratory equipment.
Tests are carried out for a wide range of companies
of all sizes, including tape and label manufacturers,
label printers, tape distributors and end users. We
carry out tests to resolve disputes, provide technical
data, evaluate alternative products and assess suitability
