Standard Test Method for
Strength Properties of Adhesives in Cleavage Peel by
Tension Loading (Engineering Plastics-to-Engineering
This standard is issued under the fixed designation D 3807; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of
original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of the last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A
superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the comparative cleavage/peel strengths of adhesives for bonding
engineering plastics when tested on a standard specimen and
under specific conditions of preparation and testing.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the
standard. The values given in parentheses are for information
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the
safety concerns associated with its use if any. It is the
responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations before use.

3.1 Definitions—Many of the terms used in this test method
are defined in Terminology D 907
3.2 Definitions of Terms Specific to This Standard:
3.2.1 semirigid adherend, n—an adherend that has dimensions and physical properties that permit bending at designated
test temperature through any angle up to 30° without breaking
4. Significance and Use
4.1 This test method determines the strength properties of
adhesives in cleavage peel by tension loading. It allows the
comparative testing of cleavage/peel strengths of bonded
engineering thermoplastic adherents.
