phenomenon limits coating durability. A low abrasion resistant coating will lead
to many surface defects after a short period of time.
Abrasion is a degradation due to mechanical wear by hard and rough objects. It generally
occurs when paint is exposed to mechanical erosion, rubbing or friction, such as
in floor finishes, enamels and varnishes application.
Resistance to abrasion is related to
paint's toughness and depends on its ability to dissipate the mechanical energy
applied by the hard substrate to wich it is in contact.
Formulator will increase the abrasion resistance of paint with the use of surface
modifying agents. In many cases,
wax will be the best option to meet application requirements..
