Coverage includes (for example) a method for the chemical analysis of wood charcoal; a specification for the use of acid copper chromate
in the preservative treatment of wood products; and a practice for establishing allowable properties for structural glued laminated timber (Glulam).
Other black pigments include copper chromate
spinel, iron titanium spinel, and synthetic iron oxide--none of which had sales of more than one million pounds.
Other fixed arsenate compounds used to treat southern pine include ammoniacal copper arsenate, ACA, and acid copper chromate
