Significance and Use

These test methods are suitable for determining the level of purity and for determining the levels of various impurities. They may be used to establish compliance with specification requirements.


1.1 These test methods cover procedures for the chemical analysis of basic carbonate white lead and basic sulfate white lead.

Note 1—If it is necessary to separate these pigments from others, refer to Practice D 215.

1.2 The analytical procedures appear in the following order:

Preparation of Sample 6
Basic Carbonate White Lead:
Small Amounts of Iron 7
Total Lead 8
Moisture and Other Volatile Matter 9
Carbon Dioxide (Evolution Method)10
