Hey, does anyone know a backyard method for testing adhesive strength?

Need to compare the strength of things like sellotape/masking tape.

Cheers

How about something like shear lap joints ?

Cheers PerennialII, but doesn't that add a new dimension of shear force in to it? Looks tricky too...

It's a 'classic' used quite a bit in testing shear behavior of adhesives, solders etc or joint strength overall. The shear profile over the adhesive is somewhat complex near the 'edges', but controllable. So suppose it bears down to what properties you want to extract, for adhesive typically shear tests, for bare tape can do "plain" tensile tests, or want to know the joint strength, which is affected by both the adhesive and the tape?

Hmm, what about the "plain" tensile test?
