ELITE PAINT is the 1st paint company in Bangladesh to achieve Lead Safe Paint® certification. Paints from Elite Paint were certified by a leading third-party certifier SCS Global Services (SCS), the program’s exclusive certification body in Bangladesh. The independent analysis of SCS confirmed that Elite Paint contained less than a total of 90 ppm lead.
Elite Paint is licensed to use the Lead Safe Paint® certification mark on its paint container labels and other promotional materials. Using this mark will provide consumers with confidence that these paints will protect their families from the hazard of lead exposure.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “lead paint is one of the largest sources of exposure to lead in children.” Lead exposure during early childhood years has been linked to an increased likelihood of impaired cognition and executive function, impulsiveness, aggression and delinquent behavior. Brain damage caused by chronic low-level exposure to lead is irreversible and untreatable.
So, reducing lead exposure is an important worldwide health issue.
