Hi to all,


I will be posting the question of the day for a couple of days, as Dave has some Family issues that he needs to deal with.

Thanks to Tim Gardener for sending in this question.

OOh good one.


Thank you Gerry for keeping it going. It's a great tool for learning and jump starting some of those sleeping brain cells.

Well the majority is right again. The correct answer is “C”, Lead Paint was outlawed in 1978.

Don’t let that date fool you. I used to be a sales rep for a paint manufacturer and I know for a fact lead based paint was still available in 1996. Some of it was called “industrial enamel”. Anyone that wanted a lead based enamel could buy it. High priced. Superior quality. I don’t know about the current availability.

David,


That is an amazing tidbit of information. Where can we get a MSDS on these forgotten industrial enamel products.

Holy Lead Based Paint!, Batman

David,


Was there a limit placed on the lead content, or could it contain as much as they wanted to put in.

It was my understanding that while the lead based paint was banned, it was not really banned just limited to how much they could put in. Is that correct?

I also understood that the amount of lead was limited rather than flat-out banned.
