    Significance and Use

    White zinc pigments find considerable use in white paints, and as such it is useful to formulators and users to be able to monitor the amounts of these pigments in whole paints. It is also of interest to raw material suppliers and paint producers to check the specifications of each pigment.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods cover procedures for the analysis of white zinc pigments.

    1.2 The analytical procedures appear in the following order:

    Section

    Zinc Oxide
    Total Zinc, Using Diphenylamine as Internal Indicator 7
    Total Zinc, Using Uranyl Acetate as External Indicator 8
    Total Impurities 9
    Total Sulfur10
    Moisture and Other Volatile Matter11
    Leaded Zinc Oxide
    Total Lead12
    Total Zinc13
    Total Sulfur14
    Total Impurities15
    Moisture and Other Volatile Matter16
    Water-Soluble Salts17
