Lead Shield binds residual lead-based paint and dust present after removal, and accepts most topical coverings as a one-step product that bonds to most surfaces. Lead Shield eliminates the need for sanding, priming and sizing recently stripped walls. Use it on both interior and exterior surfaces* to prepare the surfaces to accept a final topical covering.
- Eliminates the need for sanding and priming on most surfaces
- Water-based, 100% acrylic
*For exterior applications, LeadShield must be top coated with an exterior grade acrylic coating.
How to Use
Lead Shield must be applied when the atmosphere and surface temperatures exceed 50°F. Surfaces must be free of all surface contamination prior to application of Lead Shield. Patch any irregularities with vinyl patching paste or appropriate patching compound. If chemical strippers were used to remove the paint, follow the manufacturers’ suggestions for surface cleaning before applying Lead Shield. Sanding, scraping and other surface preparation procedures can create toxic dust and hazardous waste. A HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) vacuum should be used on all surfaces to remove hazardous dust and particles. Use MSHA/NIOSH approved or equivalent respiratory protection suitable for concentrations and types of air contaminants encountered.
