The procedure described is specific for chromium in wet blue. Vanadium is the only common interfering element and is rarely present in quantity. The precision and accuracy of the methods are usually, at least, as good as the sampling of wet blue itself.
The chromium content of wet blue is related to the degree of tannage obtained, and hence may be a matter for specification in the purchase of wet blue. The procedure described provides adequate accuracy for this purpose.View Less
1.1 This test method covers the determination of chromic oxide in wet blue that has been partly or completely tanned with chromium compounds. In general, the samples will contain chromium content between 1 % and 5 % when calculated as chromic oxide expressed upon a dry basis otherwise referred to as moisture-free basis (mfb).
