    Abstract

    The technique of physical comparison for paint chips by the characteristics of their physical alignment is common practice. Sometimes, however, the examiner may find only a small unremarkable area of physical alignment between paint chips. It is important in such cases to use some additional method or methods that will affect a more scientific proof of identity. This paper describes two interesting cases in which automotive paint chips are matched by the alignment of their surface scratches (striations).
