CosBond was Laboratory Tested on a variety of the most widely used Cosplay Materials.

The materials below were tested using peel adhesion test ASTM D-3330 at 90 and 180 degrees with 24 hour dwell time.  Average load values of 3.0 or more are considered satisfactory for Cosplay applications. Failure modes are described below.

* The Styrofoam broke apart while the adhesion remained intact.

Failure Modes:

Adhesion Failure – The adhesion breaks apart due to insufficient cohesion.
Clean – Adhesive peeled from test material with no adhesive residue left behind.
Cohesive Split – Adhesive was left on both the test material and the carrier material.
Foam Tear – The foam material broke apart while the adhesive held.
Partial Tear – Some foam broke apart and adhesive pulled away from the rest.
Substrate Failure – The test material breaks apart as it is weaker than the adhesive.
