Clear Lead Abatement Solution by Synavax is Effective, Protective, and Safe
By: Synavax, Inc.
Encapsulation, the covering or painting over of a lead contaminated surface so that it is made safe from lead exposure, is a much more cost effective method of lead abatement than either removal of lead-based paint or building a secondary wall or containment, which can also reduce the usable space.
Francesca Crolley, VP of Training and Specifications for Synavax™, explained, "We often have our clear LeadX™ lead encapsulation coating specified on museums, historical projects, and other types of commercial renovations, and even older reclaimed wood furniture, because it is currently the only clear lead abatement option available. We find that many building owners want to keep the original look of the building surfaces, whether they are brick, wood or concrete, but need to also make them safe by remediating lead. Our LeadX™ is sought out because it gives them an easy application with powerful lead protection that also provides resistance to UV, moisture, and mold growth at the same time."
LeadX™ is currently the only clear lead encapsulation coating found on the market. The product has been tested over solid lead blocks and shown to test negative for lead on the surface of the coating. It has also been tested per field regulations by multiple environmental remediation contractors and has become a lead encapsulant of choice for many. The coating is also low VOC, water-based, and environmentally friendly with no toxic ingredients.
