The relationship between the dynamic mechanical properties of coatings and physical properties, such as hardness, flexibility, mar resistance and others, has been studied and is generally well known (1). However the role of adhesion in influencing the properties of the coating on a substrate is less well known. Adhesion is not a fundamental property of a material, and measures of adhesion are rather subjective and a function of the test method used to make the measurements. However, most coating chemists will agree that a coating with "good" adhesion to the substrate will have superior mechanical properties and corrosion resistance and will outperform a coating with "poor" adhesion. Adhesion is usually measured by the cross-cut tape test (2) method B and sometimes by the tensile pull-off method (3).
