Peeling Rate Dependency of Delamination Behavior of Adhesives
Adhesives are widely used in our life and industrial world. However, it is difficult to characterize their mechanical properties because those strongly depend on environmental and mechanical conditions such as temperature, humidity or strain rate. In this paper, we focus on the strain rate dependence of the interfacial strength and investigate the interfacial strength by peel tests under several peel rates. The results show that, in lower rate region (under 1.0 mm/s), the interfacial strength is constant and, in transition region (1.0 to 10 mm/s) the interface strength increased with the peel rate. In middle rate region (10 to 103 mm/s), the interfacial strength is constant again. Over 103 mm/s region, the interfacial strength drops and became lower than those in middle rate cases. From the observation of peeling front by a high speed video camera, the deformation behavior of adhesives changes with the peel rate.Finite element analysis by using cohesive zone model is also conducted, and influence of the rate dependency of adhesive and base material is discussed.
