Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1920 Excerpt: ...to 72 per cent. of the former to 28 per cent. of the latter. Dry white lead comes on the market in the form of a heavy white powder or soft lumps, possessing, according to many authorities, a faint but characteristic odour. It has a specific gravity of 6-6, and an oil absorption of as low as 6 per cent. in some samples, i.e. a definite paste can be formed by combination of 94 parts by weight of dry white lead with 6 parts by weight of raw linseed oil. The production of the stiff product, commonly known as white lead " paste " or white lead " in oil," can either be made by directly grinding the dry pigment in oil or by "pugging" or milling the wet pulp as it comes from the filter press with linseed oil, the superior affinity of white lead for oil driving out the water. White lead is a pigment of high opacity and fairly good stability. Its great popularity in paints is principally due, however, to its power of combining to a certain extent with the oil medium used, the lead linoleate formed conferring certain physical properties of flow under the brush which are highly esteemed in practice, and a good degree of impermeability to moisture. White lead enters into the composition of many paints as a "base" or starting point on account of its high opacity and comparative stability, many pale-coloured tinted paints being obtained therefrom by addition of small proportions of stainers. The stability of white lead in paints has formed the subject of much controversy of recent years, no very satisfactory agreement or conclusions having been arrived at. In the writers' opinion, however, this would seem to be accounted for to a very great extent by the fact that too little attention seems to have been paid to the other factors ob...
