Lead paint removal


is the "Lead out" products now available any good at removing Lead paint ? They seem to be a powder. I was using regular stripper. And is Paint thinner the same as stripper?

Lead paint removal


I have not used it but I guess it might be worth a try? The website says you can get a free sample. I will hype use of an infrared stripper again. Others have chemical strippers they like. Paint thinner is not a stripper.

Removing the paint, and encapsulating it with whatever must be in Lead Out is only half the battle. You still have to abate and dispose of the lead. I am not buying the stuff renders it into gold or something.

Chris, I think this is what the OP is talking about...
