This International Standard defines terms used in the plastics industry, in English and French. The terms are listed alphabetically in English with definitions, and facing the French terms with definitions.
All terms are listed in a French-English index and, when available, in English-Russian and Russian-English indexes in normal word order; some terms are also listed in reverse word order.
When a term has one or more synonyms, the synonymous terms follow the preferred term. Furthermore, the synonyms are listed in the correct order of the alphabetical enumeration. Deprecated terms are indicated by "(deprecated)". The sign → is used after a term without definition to indicate where the definition may be found.
The abbreviation "cf." indicates, that the user may refer to another term (not a synonym), definition or note which contains information related to the term following the sign.
NOTE 1 For terms involving olefins, the (scientific) name approved by IUPAC is given in square brackets following the name used commonly in the plastics industry, for example polyethylene [polyethene].
NOTE 2 IUPAC rules for source-based names of polymers specify that when "poly" is followed by more than one word enclosing marks are used. The IUPAC practice is followed in this International Standard. In common use, the enclosing marks are often omitted.
NOTE 3 Some terms in this International Standard have information added, in parenthesis, to indicate specific limitation of the term to a particular field.
NOTE 4 In the English text, terms are indicated to be "noun", "verb" or "adjective".
NOTE 5 The sign → means: for definition, refer to.
