Abstract

Surfaces of the automobile are damaged in various forms due to external forces. The most common damage is scratch. It is not only a physical damage but also a fatal failure in an aesthetic point of view. Scratch damages are often observed on the clearcoat, which is the top layer of the automotive paint. In this study, scratch tests were conducted to evaluate the scratch resistances of various types of clearcoat layers. ASTM D7027 standard was modified to observe scratch damage more clearly.
