Results of scratch testing on hybrid org.-inorg. coatings on float glass are reported. The effects of the prepn. conditions on the apparent scratch resistance are tested using a sphere. As parameters to quantify the scratch resistance the load and the area of delamination as well as the length and no. of surface cracks are considered. It is concluded that the main reason for delamination is the deflection of cracks at the interface. A model is proposed to est. the distance between cracks. [on SciFinder (R)]
