    More information on Lead and Lead Removal

    Lead was commonly used as an additive in interior and exterior paints until the concentrations were restricted in 1975 to 0.5% (5,000 parts per million) or less. The levels were further reduced in 2005 to 0.06% or 600 parts per million (ppm) and again in 2010 to 0.009% or 90 ppm. Lead was also used in high concentrations in the solder on copper pipes or within lead pipes used for plumbing until the mid – 1990’s. As we have since discovered exposure to even small amounts of lead over a long period of time can lead to health issues including chronic toxicity and lead poisoning. Use of lead based products has been banned or the permissible concentrations set extremely low in most developed nations and its removal is encouraged.
