Scratching of thin coatings on hard substrates is studied experimentally and numerically, in the latter case by use of the finite element method. In particular the delamination behaviour at scratching, by increasing the normal load up to failure, is of interest. The adhesion of the coating to the substrate is modelled as a cohesive zone where relevant model parameters are determined experimentally using the double cantilever beam test with uneven bending moments (DCB-UBM). Good correlation between experimental and numerical results were achieved and the most important finding confirms the fact that the delamination behaviour was very much dependent on the critical energy release rate of the film/substrate interface. The results achieved are directly relevant for thin film polymer coatings but can also be applied in more general situations as a comprehensive parameter study is performed using the finite element method.
