NIST. Rossiter WJ, Vangel MG, McKnight ME, Dewalt G. Spot Test Kits for detecting lead in household paint: A laboratory evaluation National Institute of Standards and Technology. U. S. Department of Commerce; Washington, DC: NISTIR NIST Lead Cited by: 8.   D-Lead and 3M LeadCheck (about $10 each) are the only widely available lead test kits recognized by the EPA. Indeed, the EPA recognizes just three lead test kits on the market. For testing paint in which both lead-free and lead-containing paint are present, the Lead Alert Total Lead (Coring) test appears to give appropriate positive and negative results within the HUD requirements (whether greater or less than % lead by weight). With the Lead Check tests, cutting into the paint to expose all layers will make it. PRO-LAB Lead Surface Do It Yourself DIY Test Kit LS From the Manufacturer. This lead surface test kit is the most accurate test kit available to the consumer. The non-toxic chemically impregnated test pads, when moistened with water, provide the most effective and reliable results possible/5(76).

In just seconds, you will know if lead-safe practices are required. Test for lead on surfaces such as: painted surfaces, steel structures, vinyl and other plastics/5(). on the Test/QA Plan for Verification of Qualitative Spot Test Kits for Lead in Paint.1 Lead-based paints were commonly used in houses in both interior and exterior applications prior to , when the US government banned the use of lead-based paint in residential applications. Qualitative Spot Test Kits for Lead in Paint The U.S. EPA Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Program 1 in collaboration with the U.S. EPA Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT), evaluated the performance of four lead spot test kits (Table 1). The goal of the evaluation was to determine whether or not each test kitFile Size: KB.

This test method is intended as a screening test to determine if the solids in a paint contain more than % lead. The test described barely detects the presence of .   In , the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) issued the “Standard Practice for Use of Qualitative Chemical Spot Test Kits for Detection of Lead in Dry Paint Films.” The methods used in this standard are the methods used by the commercial kits. This report provides results for the performance evaluation of the 3M LeadCheck Swabs qualitative spot test kit for lead in paint. You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA’s About PDF page to learn more. 3M LeadCheck Swabs Qualitative Spot Test Kit . D-Lead Paint Test Kit The only test for lead in paint that is both ETV Tested and EPA Recognized for use on drywall, plaster, wood and ferrous metal surfaces. Quickly determine if a paint sample contains less than the USEPA regulated lead limit. Test for lead and lead chromate based paints in minutes. Small 3/16" sample required (sample tool included).
