LBC (Lead Barrier Compound) forms a barrier between lead-based paint and the environment to offer unparalleled coverage, economics and aesthetics while preserving historic and architectural detail. In independent testing, LBD met and surpassed the ASTM E-1795 standard for lead-based paint encapsulants for both indoor and outdoor use. Available in white (5800) and antique linen (5801)
How to Use
Carefully clean up with a wet mop and HEPA vacuum. Mix thoroughly, preferably with an electric drill mounted device designed for blending liquid coatings. Clear liquid present when container is opened is an integral part of the product and must be mixed in completely. LBC is supplied in a tintable white base, and may be tinted to light colors with two ounces or less of universal liquid colorant (per gallon). Field tinting by the end user or an unauthorized distributor, or the addition of more than two ounces of universal colorant will void all warranties. Medium or deep-base colors may be available from Fiberlock; please call for details. Prior to application of LBC, inspect all surfaces to ensure they are clean, dry and free of all contaminants including: dust, rust, grease, oil, mildew, glue size, calcimine, wax, soap, loose paint, or any other surface contaminant which may affect adhesion. Use a vacuum with a HEPA filter specifically designed to capture hazardous dust and waste or wipe surfaces with a damp cloth. Patch and repair irregularities in surfaces with appropriate patching compound. For high gloss or newly painted surfaces wet scour with Fiberlock’s LeadSafe Wipes or other approved surface preparation treatment. Use a coarse scouring pad or similar tool, and/or liquid de-glossing agents to eliminate any gloss where necessary. Rinse de-glossing agents as directed by manufacturer. Wear proper personal protection for any cleaning product used as determined by the manufacturer. For detailed surface preparation and application instruction, please refer to LBC Specification.
Most surfaces do not require a primer coat. However, a primer is recommended for treating the following conditions:
- Prime unpainted metal surfaces with a 100% acrylic rust inhibitive primer.
- Prime water damaged surfaces with at 100% acrylic stain blocking primer.
- Prime unpainted wood and drywall with a 100% acrylic universal primer.
- Prime unpainted brick, masonry or block with a masonry conditioner.
- Prime chalky surfaces with a chalk resistant primer.
Apply Fiberlock LBC with brush, roller or airless spray equipment.
- Brush: Synthetic, nylon or polyester bristle
- Roller: Synthetic Fiber 3/8”-1/2” nap roller
- Spray Settings: Pressure: 1300-2000 P.S.I. Tips: .015 to .021 tips
Fiberlock LBC must be applied when air and surface temperatures are above 45°F at time of application and for 12 hours thereafter. 14 wet mils are required to achieve the required minimum dry fi lm thickness of 7 dry mils. Always use a wet mil gauge to measure coating thickness during application. Apply a minimum of 2 liberal coats when using a brush or roller.
- @ 70°F 50% R.H.
- To Touch – 1-2 Hours
- Recoat – 8-16 Hours
120 sq. ft. per gallon @ 14 wet mils
Clean all tools and drippings with warm soapy water before LBC dries. Use a HEPA approved vacuum specifically designed to collect any hazardous dust and/ or waste generated. Dispose of all waste according to all current local, state and federal regulations.
Product is sensitive to heat and time. Store in a dry place at temperatures between 40°F (4.5°C) and 90°F (32°C). Do not store or apply at temperatures in excess of 100°F. Rotate stock often. Use product in a well ventilated area. If respiratory irritation develops increase ventilation and/or wear respiratory protection. Use a disposable spray-mist/dust respirator rated for filtering aerosol mist to avoid oral contact with bitter tasting, anti-ingestant ingredient when spraying. When applying with a sprayer, wear a NIOSH approved respirator with any R, P, N or HE filter. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Wash hands after use. LBC Type III will not protect occupants from ingestion of the encapsulated lead-based paint, if surface is damaged, broken or abraded. Surfaces coated with LBC Type III must be inspected routinely. Damaged surfaces should be repaired and re-encapsulated immediately to prevent exposure to the lead hazard. Not recommended for use on friction or impact surfaces, or movable closures such as door jambs and window jambs. Residents may be present during brush or roller application but not in the immediate work area (i.e., same room). Residents should not be present during spray application for worksite safety reasons. Residents may return once application has ceased and LBC III is dry to the touch.
