Ability of a coating to resist degradation due to mechanical wear by hard and rough objects (mechanical erosion) thanks to the ability to dissipate the applied mechanical energy.
An aliphatic compound is one that is not aromatic; i.e. it lacks a particular arrangement of atoms in its molecular structure.
Degree of attachment between a coating film and the underlying material to which it is in contact. The two surfaces are held together by interfacial forces which may consist of valence forces or interlocking action.
Room temperature or the existing temperature of the surroundings.
Organic compound that contains a carbonyl group bound to nitrogen. -CON- (C double bonded to O)
Thermosetting resin manufactured from amino compound and formaldehyde. Amino resins are often used as curing agents for epoxy coatings
An aromatic molecule or compound is one that has special stability and properties due to a closed loop of electrons.
