German term or phrase: Schmelzlack
This term appears in a patent about lacquering method. "Lack" seems to function as an equivalent of 'finish' within the patent.
The term occurs only once, when comparing the success of the method to water-based finished with its surprising success in applying 'Schmelzlack'.

Neben wasserbasierenden Lacken hat es sich insbesondere bewährt, Wasserdampf als Hilfsgas für das pneumatisch Spritzen von im wesentlichen lösemittelfreiem **Schmelzlack** zu verwenden, da bei diesen Lacken, die nahezu aus 100% Festkörper bestehen, der erhitzte Wasserdampf keine Abkühlung des aufgescholzenen Lackes beim Verspritzen bewirkt.

Schmelzlack itself only gets 5 google hits. Could this be 'hot melt adhesive'?

If anyone has a better field suggestion, please feel free to change it from 'Other'.
