Lead Paint Encapsulation

Recommended Posts

Hi Brian,

I think those are all latex, but that is a guess. You could probably go to the EPA site and find out for certain. It isn't so much the paint but the additive they put in the encapsulant that makes it special. They add Bitrex. It's some of the nastiest most horrible tasting stuff you can imagine. A kid comes along, gnaws on a windowsill painted with an encapsulant, and he or she is instantly repelled and bawling because of the nasty taste that won't go away. They should make a salt flavored with the stuff and sell it to parents with obese children. Bet it'd curb kids appetites pretty fast!
