A climbing drum test is a typical peel testing method used to determine the de-lamination characteristics of adhesives used to bond different materials together.

This test covers the determination of the peel resistance of adhesive bonds between a relatively flexible adherent and the relatively flexible facing of a sandwich structure and its core.

The fixture consists of a flanged drum, flexible loading straps connected to an adapter, and clamps for holding the test specimen.
