When large commercial projects are being remediated for lead, there’s often more than just a single surface type to cover. And if contractors aren’t using the right lead encapsulation solution, that means they may have to purchase primers for corrosion or different coatings for different surface types.
What they really want is one powerful lead encapsulation coating that can be used on everything. What they need is LeadX™… an all-in-one lead encapsulation solution that can be used over multiple substrate types, no primer needed.
Additionally, LeadX™ gives you the versatility to keep the look of the underlying substrate, with a clear version (LeadX™ clear lead encapsulating paint), it also comes in a white, or can be custom tinted to a desired color (LeadX™ white or custom tint lead encapsulating paint).
Typical Lead Hazard Locations
In 1978, lead paint was banned from being used due to the hazards to human health. Buildings and homes built before 1978 are likely to contain lead paint or lead dust that needs to be abated.
Typical lead hazards include:
- Lead-based paint, which can be found throughout a building, on walls, window sills, ceilings, beams, and more.
- Lead dust that’s been left behind after lead paint has been removed, especially from a porous surface like brick, wood, or concrete.
- Lead paint residue that’s seeped into metal over time.
- Lead dust as a result of a manufacturing process that contained lead, which can permeate a building’s entire interior on several substrates.
How a Lead Encapsulant Works
A lead encapsulation coating covers the lead contaminated surface and acts as a safety barrier. Once an encapsulation paint is properly applied to the surface, it will test negative for lead and make it safe for people to be around.
LeadX™ encapsulation coating by Synavax™ can be used on multiple building surfaces including, but not limited to:
