Advantages of destructive testing

Allows a roughly identify the mechanical properties of the adhesive joint

(fracture strength, elongation, modulus of elasticity ....)
The mechanical properties of the adhesive or adhesive bonding can be
defined according to the different types of stresses that undergo, efforts such
as tension, compression, shear, peel, dynamic forces of impact ...
There are many standards on destructive testing
The costs of equipment for destructive testing are cheaper compare with the
equipment used in nondestructive testing.
Ability to compare adhesives with this type of testing
Verification of surface preparation, curing conditions, working conditions and
adhesives system products (primers, activators, adhesives ...)
Predict and identify the approximate nature of the failure or breakdown that
may occur during the lifetime of the bonded joint in use, when the specimen
is previously submitted to an accelerated ageing.
Tests on a relatively cheaper cost.

Disadvantages of destructive testing

You cannot identifies internal defectology (bubbles, delaminating, pores, wrong thickness
...) of the real bonded joint, preventing repairs before being put in use or during their
Need to make specimens simulating the same process (surface preparation,
environmental conditions, and adhesives system products) which cannot be reused once
have been tested again.
Not directly identifies the status of the adhesion area in the bonded joint
