This document defines terms used in the field of coating materials (paints, varnishes and raw materials for paints and varnishes).

Terms relating to specific applications and properties are dealt with in standards concerning those applications and properties, e.g. corrosion protection (see ISO 12944), coating powders (see ISO 8130‑14), electro-deposition coatings (see ISO 22553‑1) and rheology (see ISO 3219‑1).

Terms on nanotechnologies are harmonized with ISO/TS 80004‑4.

Terms on pigments and extenders are harmonized with ISO 18451-1.

In addition to terms in English and French (two of the three official ISO languages), this document gives the equivalent terms in German; these are published under the responsibility of the member body for Germany (DIN). However, only the terms and definitions given in the official languages can be considered as ISO terms and definitions.

NOTE Those terms that are defined elsewhere in this International Standard are shown in italics.
