n 2PbCO3·Pb(OH)2. A very effective heat stabilizer, used where toxicity is of no concern as in electrical-insulating compounds. Its use is limited because of its tendency to form blisters during processing and to cause spew when exposed to weather, also by rising concern about lead in the environment (Gooch JW (1993) Lead based paint handbook. Plenum, New York). See  Carbonate White Lead.
