ARVADA, Colo., Dec. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ECOBOND™ Lead Defender™ announces new research confirming the efficacy of lead treatment protocols with demonstrated benefits by third party validation of a novel, low cost Lead Contaminated Surface Treatment (LCST). This treatment effectively treats and seals lead contaminated surfaces; thereby mitigating the potential for lead exposure hazards to humans and the environment.
The result creates a breakthrough new category for lead dust and lead paint controls: Lead Contaminated Surface Treatment (LCST), dismissing the commonly accepted sole recommendation of encapsulants. Encapsulants coat, but do not treat the lead or lead dust contaminated surfaces. Additionally, they do little to assist with reducing lead toxicity hazards and the dangers if lead dust or paint chips are ingested or inhaled.
In light of mounting evidence of wide-spread lead contamination in our cities, schools, workplaces and even our water presented daily in the news, there are urgent needs to mitigate lead hazards; including for new technologies proven to treat and seal lead surfaces in non-residential settings and residential structures compliant with USEPA and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulations for interim control.
Barthel said, "The challenge we faced when researching this solution was that a Lead Contaminated Surface Treatment (LCST) must seal lead contamination on surfaces as well as facilitate treatment of the underlying lead."
ECOBOND™ Lead Defender™ is that solution. It is a patented technology that integrates a proven state-of-the-art lead complexing treatment to help RRP contractors as well as homeowners needing a proven and reliable lead dust and paint solution.
The formula contains patented lead treatment reagents, paint penetrators and softeners designed to penetrate, bond, seal and treat existing lead dust and paint while controlling the spread of airborne lead. This product is resistant to acid rain leaching, has low odor, low VOC, a quick dry resin, has excellent adhesion, a low fire hazard due to its high flame resistant and paint qualities similar to a high end premium latex paint. It is also mold and mildew resistant and can be tinted in a wide range of colors.
Third party independent laboratory testing of the new ECOBOND™ Lead Defender™ LCST product using USEPA methods for evaluation of potential leaching hazards to the environment (TCLP and SPLP methods) and to humans (IVBA method), has demonstrated a significant reduction of potential hazards to humans and the environment.
