Scratch behavior of polymer coatings Conference Paper uri icon


  • A recent standardized scratch test methodology was applied to investigate the performance of a set of experimental acrylic coatings. Coating ductility and coating thickness were varied to study how the affect coating cohesive strength, adhesive strength and chipping resistance. The usefulness of the new ASTM scratch test for polymer coatings is discussed.
