This specification establishes the properties and requirements for the dry pigment commercially known as chrome oxide green. The pigment shall consist of practically pure chromium sesqui-oxide without any admixture. Specimens shall be sampled and tested adequately, and shall conform to the following composition requirements: total chromium; total water-soluble matter; moisture and other volatile matter; coarse particles (total residue retained on a No. 325 sieve); and organic colors or lakes. The pigments shall adhere to mass color, tint character, and tinting strength requirements as well.
