Two ductile coating materials were subjected to a combined indentation and scratch test procedure designed to screen a predetermined pattern of many small sample surfaces in a limited time. The screening of 50 surface spots ordered in a matrix pattern on the surface was carried out in 4.5 hr. The test provides reproducible data in terms of indentaion modulus, elastic recovery, scratch penetration depth, and scratch residual depth, and also offers the possibility of detecting critical mechanical transitions such as rupture. The presented procedure produces sufficient data in a limited time scale to fulfill the requirements for a fast method to screen coating compositions.
