Do You Know Why the Right Protective Green Coating Resembles our Largest Organ? The right protective coating can protect all parts of a building just like the skin protects all parts of a body. Both are the first line of defense and without them both our bodies and buildings would be naked eventually causing a complete breakdown.
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are gases emitted from certain solids and liquids. These are emitted even by typical household products, such as paint/coatings, paint strippers, wood preservatives, aerosol sprays, cleansers and disinfectants, insect repellents, air fresheners, stored fuels. These are also released by automotive products, hobby supplies and even dry-cleaned clothing.
The true cost of a paint or coating is not just the price per gallon/liter. There are direct and indirect costs to consider. Direct cost is the price per gallon/liter. Indirect cost includes how much labor it takes to apply per square feet/meters and how much time each complete application will last.
As I travel and work internationally, I encounter different aspects and opinions on asbestos. It has a long background of use in all types of situations and still widely used in building materials. To date, it is still mined and incorporated into many products in several countries. It is controversial at best. My goal is always to try and enlighten and not frighten about some of its uses and misconceptions. The fact is that as much as it is opposed and even outlawed in some parts of the world, it is still mined, exported and used in many others.
As I’ve studied the issues of what building components are the main culprits of polluting our environment of both soil and water along with generating the most waste, I’ve found that roofing can be a leading offender. This also includes air pollution if the roofing contains asbestos. Asbestos is a large content of many roofs and wall surfaces worldwide and its microscopic fibers are continually released into the environment as it breaks down.
Plain Answer to Lead-Based Paint - Simple Containment
December 12, 2019
As I travel internationally and educate many on how to simply deal with solid hazardous materials and safely contain them with green coatings I’m always amazed how differently countries look at situations with building products and how to handle them.
Strong Wind Events Cause Preventable Building Damage
November 19, 2019
Strong wind events, such as Nor'easter (sometimes also known as bomb cyclones), hurricanes, Santa Ana’s, typhoons and tornados, can all cause large scale damage in both the short and long term. Even the smallest holes can allow looming destruction to slip in and create devastation to surfaces they would otherwise be protecting.
Make no mistake the ash that has been left behind from fires that burn through buildings and homes leave behind a toxic cocktail that can become airborne and travel great distances to harm anyone that comes into contact and breathes in the offending material.
GLOBAL Encasement, Inc. exists as a company because of the belief that Green, Environmentally advanced coatings can solve many building challenges including obsolete hazardous building materials, such as asbestos, lead-based paint.
By sealing over most building surfaces including roofing with our industrial, protective green coatings you can eliminate removal and replacement, unnecessary exposure and prevent the creation of unwanted waste which helps protect people and the environment.
