Lead is a soft gray metal that has been used throughout history due to its malleability, its weight and its relatively low chemical reactivity. Only a generation ago it was a common ingredient in paints, gasoline and it was even used as a protective foil over wine bottle corks. As the health problems associated with lead exposures became better known, a complex network of local, state and federal regulations grew-up that limited and controlled the continued use of lead in most commercial products.
However, it is the continued presence of lead in older residential structures that has been a focal point of considerable recent regulatory activity.
