Abstract: We present measurements of the tensile strength as a function of the consolidation stress for a set of fine cohesive powders ~xerographic toners! of 12.7 mm particle size and with a range of concentration of submicron fumed silica as flow control additive. This additive is well known for its ability to control interparticle adhesion force. Parallel measurements using an atomic force microscope have been carried out on the adhesion force between two individual grains as a function of a controlled previous load force. The effect of the additive on the tensile strength and adhesion force is analyzed. We have found a good correlation between bulk stresses and adhesion forces between individual particles. This correlation is compatible with the existence of a subnetwork of force chains.
