Drum peeling test DIN 53 295
Testing of core connections

The drum peeling test determines the resistance of core composites to peeling forces acting perpendicular to the cover layer.

During the test, the cover layer of a core composite sample wraps around a cylindrical drum with a constant radius from the core, while the remaining part of the sandwich must be sufficiently rigid. Peeling force and distance are documented.

The average specific peeling moment is calculated from the data. For the calculation, the average tensile force [N] must be determined from the peeling diagram. The force F1 included in the calculation results from the force required to wrap the unglued cover layer sheet around the drum. To determine the force F1, the cover layer sheets were tested according to the standard.

As a result, the adhesive shows clear plastic deformation when broken, which shows that the honeycomb webs are well embedded in the adhesive and thus a strong bond. Calculation of mean specific peeling moment M:

This means:

F maverage tensile force in N
M ((Fm – F1) x (r2 – ri)/b) x [N]
F 1Force in N to align the peeling device and to wrap the glued sheet around the drum; this force must be determined through preliminary tests

Bending test DIN 53 293
Testing of core connections

The test procedure is used to assess the strength and deformation properties of core bonds under 4-point loading. The testing is conducted using a bending apparatus, consisting of a bending table and a bending punch, each with two supports.
