English term or phrase: paint map
Paint map (DFT readings)

I'm sorry, i do not have more context. I can tell you that DFT seems to mean Dry Film Thickness, that is, Espesor de la película seca). I doubt it can be translated as "mapa de pinturas", because I searhed it on google with no results. It sounds to me "carta de pinturas" for the colours available for a specific manufacturer, but I am not sure at all. Any suggestion? Thank you all.

catálogo de pinturas; carta de colores
Explanation:
JCD: la primera opción puede referirse a un booklet o librito de varias páginas; la segunda, a una sola página con los diferentes colores y tipos de pintura.
A la segunda opción la he visto en pinturerías (estoy menos segura de la primera).

Thanks everybody. I expected something more definite, but it seems a new term for all of us subject to deduction. Thank you anyway.

Espero que alguna de éstas te sirva. "Chart" si bien es en inglés se usa bastante en algunos países de habla hispana.
