Trademark Class 2: Paints and Varnishes

According to NICE Classification, Trademark Class 2 is opted to register a trademark for paints, colourants and preparations used for the protection against corrosion.

The NICE Classification was established in 1957 by NICE Agreement, and it divides marks into 45 different classes by Goods and Services (Classes 1-34 for Goods and Classes 35-45 for Services). The purpose of these classifications is to allow users to seek trademark goods or services into classes most appropriate to their business.

TM Class 2 includes paints, dyes, colourants, varnishes, thinners, lacquers, resins, anti-preparations, primers, pigments.

Why Should We Opt For TM Class 2?

You would choose Trademark Class 2 if you were registering any of these types of goods:

  • Paints, varnishes and lacquers for industry, handicrafts and arts
  • Dyestuffs for clothing
  • Colourants for foodstuffs and beverages

You would not use Trademark Class 2 if you were registering for:

  • Unprocessed artificial resins (Class 1)
  • Laundry bluing (Class 3)
  • Cosmetic dyes (Class 3)
  • Paint boxes (articles for use in school) (Class 16)
  • Insulating paints and varnishes (Class 17)

Related Classes

A related trademark class is one that is related to another class; this is due to the Indian Trademark Office (ITO) has determined that applicants registering within Class 2 may register in these other classes too.

If you are not sure while choosing Class 2 for your product, you also consider the following “Related Classes”: Class 4- Lubricants and Industrial Oils, Class 42- Science and Technology Services, Class 31- Grains and Agriculture, Class 32- Beers and Beverages, and Class 33- Alcoholic Beverages.

Trademark Registration fees also vary on bases of the Class system. You must pay a separate registration fee for each class of goods and services that you want to register. For instance, if you are going to register a trademark for Hardware in Class 6 and Software for Class 9, you should pay two separate fees.

It is necessary to choose the correct class at the time of registering a trademark, if you register a trademark in the wrong class, you must start the registration process from the beginning.
