Scratch and Mar Resistance of Mineral-Filled Polypropylene Materials 970659

Pigmented & mineral-filled PP (PF-PP) is marketed as a potential alternative to ABS for automotive interior applications. However, PF-PP is easily damaged by scratching its surface, thus limiting its acceptance for interior applications. This study investigates the test methods to quantify the extent of scratch & mar damage, and the effect of different mineral fillers towards improving the scratch & mar resistance of PF-PP.
