Dual Safe-Coat Coverage 100% Lead Tested

Some brands need twice the coverage to do what LeadX™ can do in just two thin coats. LeadX™ encapsulation paint coverage tests negative for lead, as tested over 100% lead concentration. We recommend 2 coats to ensure adequate mil thickness and consistent coverage rates for maximum safety.

Low Odor, Environmentally Friendly

You can trust LeadX™ by Synavax™ for save lead paint encapsulating. The product is water-based, low VOC, low odor, and environmentally friendly.

Easy to Work With

Other lead-based paint encapsulation products can be thick, difficult to work with, and cover the surface with a white or grey color. LeadX™ lead encapsulation coating allows the beauty or nostalgic look of the underlying surface to remain, while it acts as an effective lead-based paint remediation coating and lead paint cover. This is why our lead encapsulation compound has been used by museums, historical societies, reclaimed wood furniture designers, remodeling contractors, and many others looking for a clear option for painting over lead paint and other lead contaminated surfaces.


LeadX™ clear lead encapsulating paint is safe, water-based, low VOC, and environmentally friendly, which is one of the reasons it has been chosen by schools, Child and Family Services, the U.S. Navy, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and others looking for safe and eco-friendly lead paint encapsulating or lead remediation.

LeadX™ clear lead encapsulation paint has been thoroughly tested on solid lead blocks during in house controlled laboratory testing, and was shown to stop lead leaching through the surface, testing negative for lead on the clear lead encapsulation covered surface. LeadX™ meets current HUD and US EPA lead paint regulations for lead paint abatement procedures with lead encapsulation paint.

What is a Lead Encapsulating Paint?

A lead encapsulant is a method of  lead abatement that encapsulates, or covers, the lead paint or other lead contaminated surface. Lead encapsulants should test negative on their surface for lead, which is an indicator that it is performing to abate the lead and make the surface safe. LeadX™ tests negative for lead when coated over solid lead blocks – it’s a powerful lead encapsulant!

Adhesion and pull apart strength were also tested per ASTM D-3359 (Result: 100% 5B) and ASTM D-4541 (Result: 2400-2450 psi), showing the excellent adhesion strength in our lead encapsulation compound.

LeadX™ lead-based paint encapsulation coating has also been tested individually by many environmental remediators who have identified it as their lead-paint encapsulating compound of choice.
