Effect [GTLim1] of slip agent and talc surface treatment on the scratch behavior of TPOs Conference Paper uri icon


  • A set of model TPO systems, with and without slip agent and talc surface treatment, was investigated using a linear load increase scratch test methodology. Our findings suggest that both the presence of slip agent and surface treatment of talc fillers[GTLim2] can greatly reduce scratch visibility. The underlying mechanisms are discussed.
