Calcium plumbate is a brown pigment and additive and a powerful oxidizing agent which promotes adhesion in linseed oil paint film and confers toughness to the paint layer. It is used primarily as a rust inhibitor on iron and steel.
Calcium Plumbate is considered permanent and lightfast. It is often used as a primer over ferrous metal.
Calcium Plumbate, a leaded paint additive and pigment, is toxic. However, since it is far less soluble than lead carbonate white, it is less biologically active, and it has not been subject to as harsh a regulatory regime as lead white paints.
Developed as a rust inhibitor after World War II, it was once used extensively in shipbuilding, auto body work, and automotive restoration. Although it is much less dangerous than white lead carbonate, and is encapsulated in the paint vehicle, the presense of molecular lead has discouraged use of calcium plumbate in artist paints.
PR60 is a bluish red transparent pigment with low tinting strength.
PR60 has poor lightfastness. As a result, it is recommended only for temporary works of art, and for artwork that is meant to be photographed.
P.R. 60 was patented as early as 1902 by Meister Lucius & Brüning. Because its tinting strength is low and its lightfastness is poor, its use today is limited primarily to plastics, inexpensive packaging, and paper coloration.
