ZERO VOC ENCASEMENT PRODUCTS
I’d like to mention a neat product called PrepLESS by Global Encasement, Inc.. PrepLESS was designed to “encapsulate” lead and asbestos, and it sticks, holds, breathes and stretches, making it a very tenacious and durable coating (according to the manufacturer). We first applied it to a badly weathered (chalky, crackled, peeling) stucco exterior, and later tried it on trashed T111 siding. In both cases, the adhesion and build was phenomenal. My only concern is that it may be too flexible to go under conventional coatings, but so far, so good.
