This International Standard specifies terms used in the field of coating materials (paints, paints and raw materials for paints and varnishes). Terms relating to specific applications and properties are dealt with in standards relating to such applications and properties, e.g. B. Corrosion protection, powder coatings. Terms relating to nanotechnology are coordinated with ISO / TS 80004-4. In addition to the terms in English and French (two of the three official ISO languages), this International Standard contains the corresponding terms in German; these are published under the responsibility of the German ISO member (DIN). However, only the terms published in the official languages of the ISO can be considered ISO terms.
