Benefits of Lead Stop® for Lead-Based Paint Encapsulation

Lead paint is still found in homes across the United States, from the walls and windows to toys and furniture. The dangers associated with lead come from lead particles that can be dispersed in the air or ingested by children. In order to contain lead and keep it from poisoning our families, there are a variety of lead paint encapsulation products that seal the lead to the surface to keep it from escaping.


There are many benefits to encapsulating lead paint, including, but not limited to:

  • The details in the wood will not be compromised
  • No threat of lead dust becoming airborne
  • Lead exposure is minimized or eliminated completely
  • Forms a protective barrier against paint cracking
  • Easy and cost-effective option
  • Safe for homeowners to use when wearing protective clothing

Lead paint encapsulates can be applied just like paint. It takes about four-six hours for the thick compound to dry and should be ready for final curing 24 hours after application. The number of lead paint encapsulation coats will depend on the surface being treated. Not all surfaces should be encapsulated, including high traffic areas in the home where friction can wear the protective barrier away. Be sure to follow any manufacturer’s instructions and lead paint regulations when working with any encapsulation product.


Lead Stop® Lead Encapsulating Compound

When looking for the right lead-based paint encapsulant, you want something that’s both safe to use and safe for the environment. Lead Stop® Lead Encapsulating Compound from Dumond Chemicals is such a product. This water-based compound is non-toxic, non-flammable, and non-carcinogenic, so it will not produce any hazardous fumes or odors and is a low-VOC (volatile organic compound). Simply painting over lead paint won’t protect your family from the hazards. Covering lead paint with Lead Stop® Lead Encapsulating Compound will ensure a safe environment from the dangers of lead.
