Exceed Your Scratch Resistance Specifications

Nobody wants to walk up to their car and discover a new scratch. Your car’s aesthetic appeal is important, and having to sit down in the driver seat just to see various nicks and marks in the dashboard each morning is a surefire way to kick start a bad day.
Americhem’s scratch and mar prevention additives can benefit the automotive and other industires.
Occasional scratches don’t have to always be a reality, however. Americhem provides custom color masterbatches with scratch and mar prevention additives in order to keep you products safe from harm.

which includes a: 
  • Five-finger scratch test
  • Variable-force, variable-speed Erichsen scratch test
