Lead Abatement Coating Is Clear

The coating stops the penetration of dangerous lead through to the surface, encapsulating it, which makes a building or object that has lead dust or lead-based paint safe for use.

Industrial Nanotech Inc., a provider of nanotechnology-based, energy-saving and surface-protection solutions, announced that its Nansulate LeadX clear lead encapsulation coating has become a coating used by contractors for historical preservation and antique restoration. The LeadX coating is currently the only lead abatement coating on the market that is also clear, allowing the underlying surface to shine through. The coating stops the penetration of dangerous lead through to the surface, encapsulating it, which makes a building or object that has lead dust or lead-based paint safe for use. Lead encapsulation is an EPA-approved method of lead abatement.

Most antique furniture (depending on the age) was originally coated in natural finishes like beeswax or traditional plant oils to showcase and preserve the natural look of the wood. Then lead-based paint came along and was touted as “long-lasting”, and was used in the years before the dangers were known. So many of these family heirlooms have aged lead-based paint that is likely deteriorating now and could cause lead poisoning, especially if it is an item that is part of daily household use.
