Abstract

Evaluating the effect of scratching speed and thermal degradation time acting on the scratch resistance of Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) quantitatively using ASTM D7027-13 standard is the main theme of this paper. By measuring the critical normal load at a scratch mode transition point, scratch resistance of TPO is characterized. The test result showed that thermal degradation causes TPO to become susceptible to scratch. As scratch speed and thermal degradation time increase, critical points appeared faster which means the specimen failed at the lower load level.
