We develop a 3-dimensional mechanical model which describes cavity expansions in a viscoelastic solid medium during the debonding phase of the probe-tack test. The stress-strain curves are in good agreement with experiments for the typical pressure-sensitive adhesives. We also show that the separation speed dependence can be explained by viscous dissipations due to large strain rates around the cavities.
