LeadDefender® is a specialty paint product formulated to seal and treat the hazards of lead based paint. It is so versatile it is easily used by homeowners (DIY), residential, commercial and industrial contractors, and is specified by numerous government agencies.
Not only is LeadDefender® preferred by a wide variety of users, it is also a multi-purpose product applicable for a wide range of lead based paint projects such as:
Remodeling, Renovation and Painting - RRP(Residential and Commercial Structures)
- Interior primer and tintable topcoat (walls, doors, cabinets, and trim)
- Exterior primer (siding, trim, and exterior structures)
Renovation, Maintenance and Demolition(Industrial Buildings, Bridges, Tanks, etc.)
- Prevent the spread of lead dust, treat lead dust
- Treat lead in lead paint for non-hazardous disposal
Prior to Lead Paint Component Removal
- Use LeadDefender® to seal and treat lead dust and lead paint prior to component removal. Through proper application of LeadDefender®, removed and collected solid waste will typically provide eco-friendly disposal as non-hazardous for lead. As disposal and sampling requirements vary by state and locality, check with your local agencies for additional requirements.
- LeadDefender® is allowed for use in all 50 states as Lead Paint Interim Control (42 USC 63A 4851b(13)), check your local requirements.
Lead Dust and Lead Paint Treatment
- LeadDefender® is specially formulated to address lead dust and lead paint issues. Its patented formula chemically converts lead in lead paint and lead dust to provide stabilization that virtually eliminates leaching of lead to the environment allowing for lower cost, non-hazardous, eco-friendly waste disposal; reduces lead hazards up to 95%; and improves worker/occupant safety.

Typical Industrial Lead Hazard Treatment Project Sampling Results
- This lead hazard project included both lead dust and lead contamination in paint and in a variety of building materials including wood, cinderblock sheet rock, concrete and ceramic tile. Sampling confirmed lead levels up to 100,000 ppm or 10% by weight, which is considered a substantial risk.

- According to the US EPA, lead based paint removal costs are estimated at $8 - $15 per square foot; a house of 1,200 - 2,000 sf could cost as much as $9,600 - $30,000.
- There are several options for dealing with lead based paint during renovation, repair and painting (RRP), remediation and demolition, lead paint stabilization, and prior to removal; the challenge is findng the best solution - one that provides a safer work environment, is cost-effective, easy to use, and eco-friendly.
