Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

For an explanation on the voluntary nature of standards, the meaning of ISO specific terms and

expressions related to conformity assessment, as well as information about ISO's adherence to the

World Trade Organization (WTO) principles in the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) see the following

URL: www .iso .org/iso/foreword .html.

This document was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 256, Pigments, dyestuffs and extenders.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 18451-1:2015), which has been technically

revised. The main changes compared to the previous edition are as follows:
— the definition for colour difference (3.21) has been aligned with ISO 18314-4;
— the definition for extender (3.34) has been aligned with ISO 3262-1;

— the definitions for full shade (3.41) and mass tone (3.69) have been interchanged to align them with

the practical use and with definitions in other standards, e.g. ISO 787-25;

— a note has been added to definitions 3.34 (extender) and 3.81 (nanoextender) concerning the use of

the term “filler” as synonym for “extender” in some industries, e.g. rubber and paints;

— the terms nanomaterial (3.82), engineered nanomaterial (3.82.1), manufactured nanomaterial

(3.82.2) and incidental nanomaterial (3.82.3) have been added;
— “may” has been changed to “can” in several notes;
— the text has been editorially revised.
A list of all parts in the ISO 18451 series can be found on the ISO website.

Any feedback or questions on this document should be directed to the user’s national standards body. A

complete listing of these bodies can be found at https: //www .iso .org/members .html.

the production processes.

Note 4 to entry: In order to improve application properties, a colourant can contain additives.

3.20
colour

sensation resulting from the visual perception of light of a given spectral composition by the human eye

Note 1 to entry: The use of the German word “Farbe” alone, i.e. not in combinations of words, for coating materials

3.21
colour difference
ΔE*
parameter of the perceived difference between two colours (3.20)
* *

Note 1 to entry: The colour difference is defined by ΔE in the CIELAB colour space (see ISO 11664-4) or ΔE

ab uv

in the CIELUV colour space (see ISO/CIE 11664-5). For small colour differences between 05<<ΔE it is

recommended to use the DIN 99o formula (see DIN 6176) for industrial applications, because the CIELAB colour

difference ΔE* is not visually uniform.

Note 2 to entry: Since differences in trichromatic colour measuring systems do not or only approximately

correspond to the perception of colour difference, currently different equations are being used in order to

calculate colour differences from tristimulus values (colour difference formulas). ISO 11664-4 and DIN 6176

recommend specific colour difference equations.

pigment (3.95) that inhibits or avoids, in priming coats on metals, the corrosion of the metal surface,

normally by chemical or physicochemical action
3.26
depth of shade

measure for the intensity of a colour perception that increases with increasing chroma (3.16) and

decreases with increasing lightness (3.65)

Note 1 to entry: Colourations having the same depth of shade appear to be prepared using the same concentrations

of colourants having the same tinting strength (3.122).
3.27
dispersibility

property of a pigment (3.96) or extender (3.34) characterized by its ability to be wetted, separated and

distributed in a medium

Note 1 to entry: The dispersibility depends on its wettability and on the number and strength of the adhering

areas between the components of the agglomerates (3.94.3).

Note 2 to entry: As a measure of the dispersibility under specified dispersion conditions, e.g. the speed of the

tinting strength (3.122) development and/or the decrease of the fineness of grind (3.37) can be taken.

3.28
dispersing

separation of the agglomerates (3.94.3) of the pigment (3.96) or extender (3.34) powder into smaller

particles [agglomerates (3.94.3), aggregates (3.94.2) and primary particles (3.94.1)] and their wetting by

the medium at the same time

Note 1 to entry: Occasionally, separation of aggregates (3.94.2) and breaking, for example, of needle-shaped

primary particles (3.94.1) also takes place. Furthermore, a statistically uniform distribution of the particles (3.94)

formed in this way to all volume elements of the medium is a part of the dispersing process.

3.30
dyestuff
colourant (3.19), soluble in the application medium

Note 1 to entry: Colourants (3.19) for glass, ceramics and vitreous enamel that are dissolved in the glass phase

are also called “Lösungsfarben” in German language. In these cases, oxides of transition elements are used.

Note 2 to entry: In German usage, in the pharmaceutical and foodstuffs fields, the term “Farbstoff” is used as a

synonym for “colourant”.
3.31
earth pigment

pigment (3.96) produced from earths, e.g. by classification, if necessary with additional thermal

treatment
3.32
effect pigment

platelet-like pigment (3.96) that confers not only colour (3.20) but additional properties such as

iridescence (interference at thin layers), angle dependency of colour (colour travel, colour flop, light-

dark flop), or texture

Note 1 to entry: See also metal effect pigment (3.72), nacreous pigment (3.78), and interference pigment (3.51).

3.33
electro chromic pigment

pigment (3.96) which changes its colour (3.20) depending on the electric current or the voltage

3.34
extender

material in granular or powder form, practically insoluble to somewhat soluble in the application

medium and used to modify or influence certain physical properties

Note 1 to entry: The German terms “Extender”, “Extenderpigment”, “Pigmentextender” or “Verschnittmittel”

should be avoided.

Note 2 to entry: Whether a given substance is to be considered as pigment (3.96) or extender depends on its

application.

Note 3 to entry: In some industries, such as rubber industries, “extender” is also called “filler” (see ISO 1382). In

coatings industries, the term “extender” is preferred, because in ISO 4618, “filler” is defined as “coating material

with a high proportion of extender, intended primarily to even out irregularities in substrates to be painted and

to improve surface appearance”.
3.35
fastness
stability of the colour (3.20)

Note 1 to entry: For characterization of the respective stress, the term fastness, e.g. of a coating, is used in word

combinations such as light fastness, acid fastness, solvent fastness. The acid fastness, for example, of a coating is

the stability of the colour (3.20) of the coating under the influence of acids.
3.36
final level of dispersion

level of dispersion (3.62) when it has become constant under the defined conditions

Note 1 to entry: The final level of dispersion of a pigment (3.96) depends on the binder system in which it is

dispersed, on the dispersion process and on the composition of the milling base.
3.37
fineness of grind
measure for the largest solid particles in a liquid matrix

Note 1 to entry: The term fineness of grind is not to be confused with the term grain hardness.

Note 1 to entry: Only indirect conclusions to the practically effective intrinsic hardness can be made, for example,

from abrasion tests.

Note 2 to entry: In the case of inorganic pigments, the Mohs hardness is often given as a reference value for the

intrinsic hardness.
3.53
iron blue pigment

pigment (3.96) formed by the reaction of iron salts with cyanoferrate(II) or cyanoferrate(III) ions and

followed, if necessary, by treatment with oxidizing agents
3.54
iron oxide pigment

pigment (3.96) consisting of natural or synthetic iron oxides, if necessary with additions of extenders

3.55
kaolinite
main constituent of natural clay (3.89)
3.56
lake

pigment (3.96) produced by precipitation of a dissolved organic dyestuff (3.30) with a precipitating agent

Note 1 to entry: Lake is not “Lack” as commonly used in German language but a colourant (3.19). In Austrian and

Swiss usage, the German expression “Farblack” is not usual.

3.57.1
lake pigment

pigment (3.96) produced by precipitation of a sulphone or carbonic acid-containing azo

dyestuff with one or more suitable metal salts

Note 1 to entry: Lake pigments predominantly contain metal cation magnesium, calcium, strontium, barium,

aluminium or manganese.
3.57.2
lake pigment

pigment (3.96) produced by precipitation of a basic dyestuff (3.30) with heteropoly acids

3.58
lead chromate pigment

yellow, orange or red pigment (3.96) consisting of lead chromate with or without lead sulphate and/or

lead molybdate

Note 1 to entry: Designations in common use for lead chromate pigments are, for example, chrome yellow,

molybdate orange and molybdate red.
3.59
lead chrome green pigment

inorganic pigment (3.96) produced from lead chromate pigments (3.58) and iron blue pigments (3.53)

without additions of extenders (3.34) and other colourants (3.19)
3.60
lead chrome/phthalocyanine pigment

pigment (3.96) produced from lead chromate pigments (3.58) and phthalocyanine blue pigments without

additions of other colourants (3.19)
3.61
leafing

flooding (3.39) of effect pigments (3.32) to the surface of a coating material shortly after application

[SOURCE: ISO 4618:2014, 2.149]
3.62
level of dispersion

extent to which pigment (3.96) particles have been separated, distributed and stabilized by milling in a

binder system under defined conditions
3.63
light fastness

resistance to colour changes due to exposure to light, without direct atmospheric effects (therefore, not

“weather resistance”)

Note 1 to entry: Light fastness commonly is evaluated by visual assessment using standard reference colour

standards (or by instrumental assessment).
3.64
lightening power

ability of a pigment (3.96) to increase the lightness (3.65) of a coloured, grey or black medium

3.65
lightness

intensity of a light perception as it is inseparable connected with each colour perception

Note 1 to entry: Definition aligned to CIELAB.
3.66
lithopone

white pigment obtained by combined precipitation of zinc sulphide (ZnS) and barium sulphate (BaSO )
