What makes a coating resist abrasion? How do you choose?

First, understand the types of wear and their contributing factors:

Wear Adhesion -- visible by fretting, pits, holes or scales transfer, the result of softer materials dislodging from a widened hardness gap between two moving surfaces. Besides a drop in performance, look for visible changes in surface finish, dimensional or geometric distortion.

Wear Abrasion -- witnessed by scratches, grooves, or corrugations, caused by loose abrasive particles torn away from the wear surface. Also look for negative changes in performance, surface finish, dimensional or geometric distortion.

Wear Surface Scarring-- seen by tears or small holes, typically relates to shock or impact, and involves fatigue close to the wearing surface.

Wear Surface Erosion-- manifested by dimensional loss, but first by changes in surface finish, a natural form of polishing. Here, the mated surface consists of fine particles in the form of solids, semi solids, or liquid suspensions traveling at high rates across a surface.
