    Abstract

    This specification covers commercially pure chrome yellow and chrome orange pigments. The chemically precipitated pigments should consist of normal or basic lead chromates, or mixtures of these, with or without admixtures of other insoluble lead compounds. Pigment composition should conform to the required amounts of lead chromate, total matter soluble in water, total of all substances other than insoluble lead compounds, moisture and volatile matter, coarse particles, and organic colors and lakes for each of the six types.
