Thread: Are they using lead in paints again?

  1. #1

    Default Are they using lead in paints again?

    As far as I've always been told, they stopped using lead in paints before I was even born. I have come across lead joints and lead repairs, but never seen any in paint. We recently decided to try out the MartinSenour/Napa base coats. Well, after a few shots I was reading the can and notice lead and lead chromate warnings all over it. It states very clearly this product contains lead. Am I just out of the loop or is this new thing?

    lead has remained in paint this whole time yes.

    PPG plans to remove all lead based toners by 2020.

    Interesting. I feel pretty dumb now. I just haven't seen a lead warning on a can in years, other than some dupont cans that said "may contain lead", and the others I have seen looked ancient.

    Although lead has been banned from household paints in the United States since 1978, paint used in road markings may still contain it. Alternatives such as water-based, lead-free traffic paint are readily available, and many states and federal agencies have changed their purchasing contracts to buy these instead.
