German term or phrase: dE-Wert
I'm translating testing instructions concerning the heat resistance of coatings

Under the heading
"Beurteilung der Temperaturbeständigkeit"

"Die Beurteilung soll visuell und farbmetrisch (dE-Wert)durchgeführt werden."

The "dE values" of samples baked at different temperatures are compared.

Thanks in advance

dE or delta E (value)
Explanation:
assuming E is the symbol for the internal energy, in which case dE or "delta E" would be the change in internal energy

the 'value' can often be omitted in English.
