AbstractThe manner in which internal strain adversely affects the adhesion of coatings is demonstrated both experimentally and theoretically. Internal strain energy stored in a coating increases with its thickness and, at a certain thickness, that energy is sufficient to overcome the interfacial work of adhesion. When that happens, the coating spontaneously peels from its substrate. The coating thickness at which this failure occurs provides a direct measure of adhesion that correlates well with results gained from peeling and pull-off tests on the polystyrene and polyisobutylmethacrylate lacquers used here.
