If lead is absorbed into the body, it can cause brain and organ damage, especially in young children. But like the harmful chemicals in your air and water, lead in paint is not visible to the human eye.
Industrial Test Systems' new LeadQUICK Home Paint Kit allows you to ensure your paint contains less than the EPA recommended maximum level of lead in paint. Simply cut a sliver of paint from your wall, place this sliver in the included test tube with the reagent and wait a few minutes for the solution to change color. Then match this color up with the color code to see your paint's lead level.
Unlike many kits, the LeadQUICK Home Paint Kit tests all of your paint's layers for lead, not just the top layer. The test contains enough reagent to perform 25 tests. This test is also known by the part numbers 487925-V and 487925.
