Standard Test Method for Evaluation of Scratch Resistance of Polymeric Coatings and Plastics Using an Instrumented Scratch Machine
|Publication Date:||1 September 2020|
|ICS Code (Organic coatings):||25.220.60|
This test method describes a laboratory procedure using an instrumented scratch machine to produce and quantify surface damage under controlled conditions. This test method is able to characterize the scratch resistance of polymers by measuring many significant material parameters. The scratchinducing and data acquisition process is automated to avoid user-influenced effects that may affect the results.
