Pencil hardness

Hardness: [In materials science, hardness is the characteristic of a solid material expressing its resistance to permanent deformation. There are three principal operational definitions of hardness: Scratch hardness, Indentation hardness, Rebound or dynamic hardness]

Modern clear coat urethane even though they are harder than lacquer paints, they still scratch more easily.

This is the main reason to take vendor claims of ‘provides 9H hardness ‘for what it is – totally irrelevant.
