Lead Compounds

Lead compounds are used in a range of industrial applications. For example, lead oxides are used as intermediates in the production of glass, ceramics, frits, and explosives, in smelting applications, in the production of lead-based batteries, and in adsorbents. They also have professional uses for example as laboratory reagents.

Eleven lead compounds have been REACH Registered under the remit of the Pb REACH Consortium. Substance identity and classification and labelling information can be found in the substance grade data sheets below; links to the disseminated registration dossiers are also provided, which includes information on the identified uses:
