Indispensable Part of the Surface Inspection
The scratch test determines the adhesive strength between the coating and the base material as well as the cohesive strength within the coating. These material properties are important to analyze where cyclical loads occur – i.e. in the automotive industry. The coating adhesion determines how well the coating will withstand static and dynamic contact loads in everyday life. Thus, the scratch test is an essential part of a quality inspection and the development of new coatings.
