New support for the South African Paint Manufacturing Association’s drive to remove paints containing lead from the coatings industry has come from painting contractors.

Deryck Spence, executive director of SAPMA, recently addressed a meeting of leading paint contractors at SAPMA’s head office in Bedfordview. Feedback from the contractors present was very supportive, with several indicating that they were interested in joining SAPMA and following its lead-free philosophy.
