ISO 20566:2005

Paints and varnishes -- Determination of the scratch resistance of a coating system using a laboratory car-wash

ISO 20566:2005 describes a test procedure for assessing the scratch resistance of organic paint coatings, in particular paint coatings used in the automotive industry (i.e. for assessing their car-wash resistance). Machine-based washing is simulated in the laboratory environment using a rotating brush and synthetic dirt. The test conditions have been designed to be as close as possible to the real conditions in a car-wash.
