Description / Abstract:


This Standard was prepared by the Joint Standards Australia/Standards New Zealand Committee CH-003, Paints and Related Material, to supersede AS/NZS 2310:1995.

Definitions include terms dealing with paint types, paint materials, paint characteristics, paint defects, the application of paints and other relevant aspects of paint technology.

The objective of the Standard is to provide a better understanding of the terminology used in the paint industry, for the use of those involved in the manufacture, supply, purchase and use of paint, and those involved in the writing of Standards for paints and the framing of painting specifications.

During the preparation of this Standard, account was taken of definitions given in ISO 4618:1998, Paints and varnishes—Terms and definitions for coating materials, Part 1: General terms, Part 2: Special terms relating to paint characteristics and properties, Part 3: Surface preparation and methods of application, and Part 4: Terms relating to raw materials. Terms that are the same as ISO definitions are marked with (*). Terms marked with a dagger (†) indicate accepted Australian definitions, which have been adopted where the ISO definitions were considered inappropriate or less definitive. Terms that are preferred for general usage have been highlighted in bold print. Some alternative terms that are not preferred have also been listed, but are not highlighted in bold print.

It should be pointed out that this Standard does not include many commonly used terms that are not specific to the paint industry. For such words, reference should be made to The Macquarie Dictionary.
