Scratch Resistance

 Improvement of scratch resistance by nanoparticles helps maintaining values

Nano-coatings or nano-additives for polymer coatings can create surfaces with improved scratch resistance and/or abrasion resistance.

Depending on the force impact scratch and abrasion resistance are very different.

example: values of pencil hardness – a cost efficient test for smooth surfaces

example: crockmeter-test

example: taber abraser-test
