Lead in paint analysis


Lead is a toxic and harmful element. Lead can affect the central nervous system. One of the main sources of lead exposure to children is lead, contained in paints. In some cases, lead paint is used in kids equipment on playgrounds. Even more dangerous is the presence of lead in paints, with covers toys or Christmas decorations. Therefore the analysis of painted surfaces and paints itself is an urgent operation for the industry.

The X-ray fluorescence analysis method is most convenient for determining the lead content in paints, since the analysis can be carried out directly on site without any sample preparation.

Elvateh offers portable handheld XRF analyzers for the analysis of lead directly on painted surfaces, as well as laboratory and mobile spectrometers for the analysis of lead content in paint and varnish materials.
