THE DANGERS

 

  • Sanding paintwork containing lead without precautions entails a contamination that the body takes a long time to eliminate. In the event of severe contamination, serious medical treatment is required in order to speed the elimination of the lead absorbed by the body.
  • Lead is most dangerous for children: as they frequently put objects in their mouths, they are more likely to ingest flakes of paint or contaminated dust, which can have serious and permanent consequences, such as intellectual development issues, the loss of memory or slow growth.
