Encapsulation products are sold by specialty companies, and you need to be certified to use them. There is a lot of liabillity in this area. The national Lead hotline is (800) 424-5323. Regular primer and paint does not encapsulate lead.

Charles, does the spec call for encapsulation, or simple repainting? As said, there is liability here, especially if they have a daycare/sunday school where kids congregate. If you're getting paid to do this there could even be fines and charges brought against you if you're not certified. The best advice would be to contact a local lead certified pro on the ground there and figure out specifically what is required in your state/locality given the situation/conditions you have. It's not just a federal issue. The states have been given rights to expand on federal guidelines, and many have. This is what we've come to, the federal government is now making decisions as to how you and your local community are going to handle painting your little house of worship. Look for it to be a significant cost.
