Abstract

Vehicles confront damages and breakdown caused by various factors under working condition. The most common type of the failure is scratch. External particles such as small pebbles pop up and cause physical damages on the surface of the vehicle. It is not desirable in the aesthetic point of view. Clear-coat layer, which is on the top of the painted surface, is directly affected by scratch. To evaluate the scratch characteristics of the coatings of passenger vehicles, we conducted scratch tests using ASTM D7027 standard. Through the experiments, we obtained scratch properties of various coatings. Using the results, scratch-resistant clear-coat will be developed.
