              Normal urban or industrial atmosphere
               Environment corresponding to the exterior of buildings located in urban
               agglomerations and/or an industrial environment, comprising one or more
               factories which produce gases and fumes, thus creating a slight rise in
               atmospheric pollution without, however, being a source of corrosion
               associated with a strong content of chemical compounds.

              Severe urban or industrial atmosphere
               Environment corresponding to the exterior of buildings located in urban
               agglomerations and/or an industrial environment with a strong content of
               chemical compounds, and a source of corrosion (industrial environment
               comprising principally incineration factories, distilleries, cement works, paper
               mills) either on a continuous or intermittent basis.

              Marine atmospheres

                  o Environment corresponding to the exterior of buildings situated between
                    3 km and 20 km from the coast ;

                  o Coastal : environment corresponding to the exterior of buildings
                    situated between 1 and 3 km from the coast, with the exclusion of direct
                    attack from sea water (seafront) ;

                  o Seafront :
                       Zone where sea water is capable of spraying, either partially or
                          momentarily, the buildings constructed partly or wholly with the
                          Products;
                       Zone where sea spray has a direct action on the buildings
                          constructed either partly or wholly with the Products;

                   o Mixed Atmosphere : environment corresponding to the combination of
                   both a marine coastal atmosphere and a normal or severe urban and
                   industrial atmosphere.
