Test Method: SATRA TM410

Adhesion strength of a coating to its base

April 1995


This method is intended to determine the strength of adhesion between a coating and its base. The method is applicable to all types of textile material with a discrete coating, but especially polyurethane coated fabrics used in footwear uppers.


The coated surface of a test specimen is bonded to a piece of resin rubber using a strong adhesive. The force required to peel the test specimen from the resin rubber leaving the coating attached to the rubber is measured using a tensile testing machine. The test can also be carried out on wet and hydrolysed specimens.


BS EN 10002-2: 1992 – Verification of the force measuring system of the tensile testing machine.
SATRA TM328 – Hydrolysis of polyurethane based sheet material.


First issued February 1975. Revised January 1985, April 1995.
