What is the difference between engravers pitch and chasers pitch?

Engravers pitch 
 
- Harder, non brittle pitch
- Modern alternative to the black pitch as it's much less toxic
- It provides a strong, firm support whilst preventing metal from yielding or bending
- More useful for detailed work with engraving or chiselling tools and for planishing work
 
Chasers pitch
 
- Medium grade, softer and versatile pitch
- It gives enough to form deep repousse areas when hammering but firm enough to chase on
