Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers molybdate orange dry pigments made by chemical coprecipitation of lead chromate and lead molybdate, with or without admixtures of other insoluble lead compounds or other materials. Mixing the pigments with a white pigment should produce tints with required mass colors and characters. The dry pigments should be subjected to chemical analysis, The dry pigments should conform to the specified requirements for chromium content, molybdenum content, moisture and other volatile matter content, coarse particle content, water-soluble matter content, mass color and tinting strength, and resistance to loss of gloss, chalking, and color change.
