Lead paint: evil twin
There is a point of view that lead paints were “bad”….and they are, if ingested into a child’s digestive or breathing systems. But…..because of the lead ingredient, many wood and metal historical pieces have been preserved. In spite of this contribution to our heritage, the lead paints have been banned since 1978.
Now an alter ego to the evil twin (lead paints) is making is debut.
The good twin
The good twin coating is available with these advantages:
- Like lead paint, the good twin lasts longer than popular water-based coatings
- Like lead paint, the good twin maintains its color longer than popular water-based coatings
- Unlike lead paint, the good twin does not emit an odor when applied
- Unlike lead paint, the good twin is clear, perfect for protecting water-based coatings.
