Purpose. The purpose of this procedure is to determine the ability of a surface to resist scuffing or marring. Scuffing is defined as permanent damage to the coating. An example of scuffing would be a break in the topcoat with visible flakes of coating caused by scraping by the paperclip. Marring is defined as no break or penetration of the coating, only visible trenching or marking detectable. The marring may or may not be permanent. An example of marring would be a furrow created by the paperclip that does not break or permanently disturb the coating.
Applicability. Plastic films, vinyl, leather, etc., used in automotive interior trim applications.
