Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 June 2012
Status: inactive
Page Count: 4
ICS Code (Paint and colour industries (Vocabularies)): 01.040.87
ICS Code (Solvents): 87.060.30
scope:

1.1 Although the pine chemical industry has been a continuing producer of chemical products for many centuries, the nature of the industry, its products, and its terminology have changed. In particular, the original practice of recovering pine chemical through the processing of the exudate from pine trees has been supplemented by their extraction by solvent products of the wood pulping industry. For many years the industry was known as the Naval Stores industry but that term has gradually been replaced by the more descriptive and meaningful term, Pine Chemicals Industry. Thus, this terminology contains some old terms now mostly of historic value, together with the terms of the modern pine chemical industry.
