Lead's Many Protective Uses

Chemical, sound, radiation, corrosion, weather; the protective qualities of Lead have been well proven over centuries of use. The Romans used to line their wine casks with Lead but that turned out to be a bad idea. They favoured essence of lead in their tipple but discovered the longer term effects when it was too late. By all means use it to protect your assets but our Lead is strictly not for consumption.
