If you wish to determine whether your materials contain lead (Pb), use the latest MATinspired Lead test kit. The kit allows you to find out if your materials contain lead, which can pose health risks and environmental damage.
Using this test kit, you can quickly and easily test your materials for potentially toxic lead. Some of the materials you could test, could be: paint coats, metals or soldering layers.
If the cotton swab that is present in the kit turns red, it indicates the presence of lead in the tested material.
This test kit contains 50 swabs, allowing up to 50 tests to be conducted.
Using this test kit, you will be able to test your materials for lead in a short time frame. This can reduce health risks and potential environmental damage.
The test is simple: if the cotton swab turns red, lead is present in the material.
50 tests can be performed with this test kit.
The kit contains: 50 test rods (cotton swabs), testing fluid and a lead reference sample.
Testing a paint layer for the presence of lead
The test kit enables you to test a paint layer (or primer) for lead. To do this, make a few cuts into the layer. Then lightly sand the layer. Moisturize the end of the cotton swab with testing fluid and rub the cotton swab onto the paint layer. If the layer contains lead, the cotton swab will turn red. If no lead is present in the material, the cotton swab will remain yellow.
