Alliance’s broad objective is phasing out the manufacture and sale of paints containing lead to eventually eliminate the risks that such paints pose.

The Powder Coating Research Group has joined the Global Alliance to Eliminate Lead Paint, which is a voluntary collaborative initiative to catalyze efforts to achieve international goals of preventing children's exposure to lead from paint and minimizing occupational exposures to lead paint. Its broad objective is phasing out the manufacture and sale of paints containing lead to eventually eliminate the risks that such paints pose. The Global Alliance to Eliminate Lead Paint is a joint effort by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Environmental Program. Major paint suppliers and a number of coatings trade groups are also partners. Visit powdercoatingresearch.com.
