Abrasion & Washability Videos
Coatings (paints, varnish and inks) that are exposed to the environment are subjected to a certain degree of physical impact from the forces of nature or from machinery and people. Such impact can change the nature of the coatings by way of uneven loss in thickness, reduction in gloss, colour change and scratch marks. A particular coating’s ability to withstand certain types of wear is important in the formulation and selection of the paint and it can be determined using accelerated test methods such as the wet-scrub resistance and washability in accordance with guidelines from international testing bodies.
