STANDARD NUMBER TITLE ABSTRACT
DIN EN ISO 4628-1 Paints and varnishes - Evaluation of degradation of coatings - Designation of quantity and size of defects, and of intensity of uniform changes in appearance - Part 1: General introduction and designation system (ISO 4628-1: 2016); German version EN ISO 4628-1: 2016 This part of ISO 4628 specifies a system for assessing the quantity and size of defects on coated surfaces as well as the intensity of changes in the appearance of coatings resistant and contains the foundations of the system of standard ISO 4628.
DIN EN ISO 4628-2 Paints and varnishes - Evaluation of degradation of coatings - Designation of quantity and size of defects, and of intensity of uniform changes in appearance - Part 2: Assessment of degree of blistering (ISO 4628-2: 2016); German version EN ISO 4628-2: 2016 This part of ISO 4628 specifies a method for evaluating the degree of blistering of coatings determined by comparison with images.

DIN EN ISO 4628-3 Paints and varnishes - Evaluation of degradation of coatings - Designation of quantity and size of defects, and of intensity of uniform changes in appearance - Part 3: Assessment of degree of rusting (ISO 4628-3: 2016); German version EN ISO 4628-3: 2016 This part of ISO 4628 specifies a method for evaluating the rust stage of coatings determined by comparison with images.
