Contractors and homeowners needing a lead-paint treatment solution can now visit Ace Hardware online or contact local Ace Hardware stores to chat with the paint desk about ECOBOND® - Lead Defender®. Enjoy peace of mind from the dangers of lead paint using the proven & patented ECOBOND® family of products which help mitigate lead dangers to human health.

In a recent article in Paint & Coatings Industry Magazine on lead paint treatment, the staggering statistics from The Centers for Disease Control reports that today at least four million households have children living in them that are being exposed to high levels of lead.

In a move to further serve widespread issues associated with the dangers of lead paint ECOBOND® made the strategic decision to add Bitrex® Bitterant Technology to their lead paint treatment product, ECOBOND® - Lead Defender®. In a recent press release from Johnson Matthey (UK), Bitrex®, which is the bitterest substance known, announced that they have been added to ECOBOND® to reduce accidental ingestion of potentially harmful materials.  In the new Lead Defender formula, Bitrex® creates an added safety barrier to further protect children from lead poisoning by reducing the amount of paint chips or dust a child may ingest.

“We are excited to be approved as an Ace Hardware vendor and have our proven & patented ECOBOND® family of products with lead paint treatment technology available to help families in the fight against lead paint poisoning.” stated James Barthel, President and creator of ECOBOND®.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and CDC are committed to eliminating this burden to public health.”  The CDC reports that today at least 4 million households have children living in them that are being exposed to high levels of lead.

Barthel, creator of the ECOBOND® family of products stated, “We enthusiastically embrace a mission of restoring our environment and protecting people from the hazards of lead with our patented ECOBOND® lead paint treatment technology. It is for this reason that we are pleased to donate $100 for every 100 gallons of ECOBOND® - Lead Defender® or ECOBOND® - Lead Defender® PRO, to further the cause of organizations including: The Coalition to Prevent Lead Poisoning and The Colorado Lead Coalition.”
