Many large commercial lead abatement projects include renovation of an older building into something exciting and new. Some renovators want to keep the specific style or look of an historic brick or wood facade, requiring a clear encapsulation coating. Others are looking to update with distinct project colors and would rather save money by painting and encapsulating lead with one product. They need a lead encapsulating coating to fit any design need.
Which product is so versatile that it can safely and effectively encapsulate lead and also comes in clear, white, or can be custom tinted? Just one that we know of… LeadX™ encapsulation coating by Synavax™.
LeadX™ Encapsulating Coating Gives You Options
Clear: Do you want to keep the look of the underlying surface? LeadX™ clear lead encapsulating paint is clear with a matte finish. Perfect for retaining the visual appeal of historical architecture and natural brick or wood.
Custom Tint: Are you painting during renovation to a particular color and don’t want to have to paint twice with two different coatings? For orders of 25 gallons or more, we can custom tint LeadX™ to your specified color code so you can encapsulate lead and add your color with the same product.
White: Prefer a white lead encapsulating coating or want to tint it yourself? LeadX™ in white is easily tinted, if desired, with standard pigments made for water-based paints.
When you use LeadX™ as your lead encapsulant of choice (like the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, and multiple historical and commercial projects have) you get additional benefits beyond the ability to encapsulate lead to make the surface safe. That’s more value for your money.
In addition to lead encapsulation, LeadX™ provides;
- Corrosion prevention
- Mold/mildew resistance
- Moisture resistance
- Breathability (won’t act as a vapor barrier)
- UV resistance
- Low VOC, eco-friendly
- Excellent coverage rate (about twice that of some other encapsulants)
