    Significance and Use

    This test method has been developed to standardize the chemical analysis of zinc chromate yellow pigment and to provide alternate methods of analysis for chromium and zinc.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods cover procedures for the chemical analysis of the pigment known commercially as zinc yellow or zinc chromate yellow.

    1.2 The analytical procedures appear in the following order:

    Sections
    Moisture and Other Volatile Matter7
    Combined Water8
    Chromium:
    Dichromate Method 9-11
    Thiosulfate Method9, 12, and 13
    Zinc:
    Hydroxyquinoline Method9, 14, and 15
    Ferrocyanide Method9, 16, and 17
    Alkaline Salts18 and 19
    Sulfates20 and 21
    Chlorides22 and 23
    Matter Insoluble in Dilute Acetic
    Acid
    24
    Coarse Particles25

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be considered the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
