ABSTRACT
This document specifies a method for measuring the scratch resistance and failure behavior for advanced materials and coatings by means of nano- and micro-scale scratch experiments. The method provides data on both the physical damage to test pieces and the friction generated between the sample and the test piece under single pass and multiple pass conditions. The force range in these tests is from 1 ┬ÁN up to 2 N. The test method is not applicable to coatings as defined in EN ISO 4618.
