Optimum protection with lead

Lead is an element that possesses unique properties. Thin layers of it protect buildings against the weather and people against X-rays. It is also used to protect against corrosion in the chemical and metal industries.

Lead is not only a particularly dense material that can be shaped easily; it also has a low melting point. This means that relatively little energy is used in its production. Its high level of recycling makes lead an extremely efficient material in ecological and economic terms.

On the following page you'll learn how lead forms a part of our everyday life, what its environmental advantages are and what health standards are applied to working with lead.
