BS EN ISO 1518-1:2011
Paints and varnishes. Determination of scratch resistance. Constant-loading method

This part of BS EN ISO 1518 specifies a test method for determining under defined conditions the resistance of a single coating or a multi-coat system of paint, varnish or related product to penetration by scratching with a scratch stylus loaded with a specified load.

Penetration of the stylus is to the substrate, except in the case of a multi-coat system, in which case the stylus can penetrate either to the substrate or to an intermediate coat.

The method specified can be carried out

a) either as a “pass/fail” test, by testing with a single specified load applied to the stylus to assess compliance with a particular specification

b) or by applying increasing loads to the stylus to determine the minimum load at which the coating is penetrated.

What are the main changes I need to know about for this standard?

  • A principle clause has been added
  • Two versions of the test apparatus are now described
  • The minimum length of the scratch has been reduced from 60mm to 40mm
  • The magnification of the lens used to examine the scratch has been specified as at least x4
  • The supplementary test conditions have been integrated in the test report
  • A clause on precision has been added


ISO 1518 consists of the following parts, under the general title Paints and varnishes. Determination of scratch resistance:

Part 1: Constant-loading method
Part 2: Variable-loading method


Contents of BS EN ISO 1518-1 include:

  • Scope
  • Normative references
  • Principle
  • Apparatus
  • Sampling
  • Test panels
  • Procedure
  • Precision
  • Test report
  • Bibliography

It cancels and replaces ISO 1518:1992, which has been technically revised.

What other standards should I consider for paints and varnishes?
