This European Standard specifies a method for the assessment of the surface resistance to penetrating scratch and relates to rigid surfaces of all finished products regardless of materials. It does not apply to finishes on leather and fabrics. Method A is suitable for all types of surface coatings and coverings except for melamine faced boards and HPL. It simulates measurable penetrating and/or deforming scratches. Method B is suitable for all types of surface. It simulates first visible scratches which may only be a change of gloss. The test is intended to be carried out on a part of finished furniture, but can be carried out on test panels of the same material, finished in an identical manner to the finished product, and of a size sufficient to meet the requirements of the test. It is essential that the test be carried out on unused surfaces.
