Lead Safe

146 users have liked.

Most KG / Montessori / Play schools have brightly colored exteriors/ painted play items. Most paints in India are Lead based. Pigment ( prime component of Paint are Lead compounds. Has been for centuries. Developed countries have reduced Leaded paints by Legislation. There is no such Legislation in India. GOI however introduced Lead Free Petrol since 1-4-2000. SOME PAINT MAKERS HAVE VOLUNTARILY INTRODUCED LEAD FREE PAINTS SINCE JULY 2008. But the quantity is not absolute meaning there are a lot of Leaded paints on shop shelves. Unless you ask specificaly you may be handed LEADED paint.

How to know if item is LEAD FREE paint?  Lead Free paint cans have specific printing saying " lead not added or similar words" . Go for sealed Tins and Lead Free writing. If the shop tells you that item is Lead free but company did not have new conainers  DO NOT ACCEPT IT.

HOWEVER BIG AND FAMOUS THE SCHOOL MAY BE THIS TOPIC OF LEAD FREE ENVIRONMENT IS NEW IN INDIA. Lead from painted idols immersion has been covered by Pollution Control Board for several yrs. Form groups and make a list of such schools in your locality. Get in touch wiyth NRCLPI and start.  Dont Delay...Children are the worst hit.. comment guidelines
