Using the test kits properly is critical to obtaining valid results. In an effort to assist Certified Renovators and training professionals on learning how to use the D-Lead testing kit, the manufacturer ESCA Tech, Inc. has developed an instructional video for the D-Lead Paint Test Kit and Klean Strip D-Lead Paint Test Kits. D-Lead test kits are recognized for use on wood, ferrous metal, or drywall and plaster surfaces.
The training video can be viewed on ESCA's website here.
