English to Dutch translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase: criticale
This is from a car product catalogue and I find the translation of critical in this context a bit difficult. Maybe someone has an idea? The entire sentence goes: "XXXXX has developed a range of technically innovative and sophisticated chemical abrasive products for all contemporary High Solids, water-based and critical colour coatings". Any help would be appreciated!

gevoelig
Explanation:
Hi Willemina, that sounds like an american catalogue. In the Netherlands you can safely use a word like "gevoelig" in this case. It does not sound as "dramatic" as the american word but I think it is ok to use.


Regards & success
