CH#017 - Lead-Based Paint Encasement at Brooklyn Navy Yard


Lead-Based Paint Encasement


Lead-Based Paint Encasement at Brooklyn Navy Yard
Brooklyn, New York USA



The Challenge:

Being one of the older buildings at this prominent Navy Yard and not being occupied for several years accounted for the poor condition of this very large structure. Reopening the building without having the concerns and future liabilities that are sometimes associated with Lead-Based Paint was at the top of the list of considerations in selecting a solution for this very important project.

Benefits Desired:

  • Green and Super Compliant Zero VOC Coatings
  • Address the Rust and Corrosion
  • Class A Fire Rating
  • Little to No Surface Preparation
  • Cost Effective and Long-Lasting



A GLOBAL Encasement system was the answer to all concerns. The designed system with R.I.P.™ Rust-Inhibiting Primer was able to take care of all past and future corrosion concerns while the PrepLESS Primerand LeadLock TopCoat insured that there was a tight, long-lasting, durable seal over the existing Lead-Based Paint. GLOBAL Encasement, Inc. again was able to provide simple, safe solutions to an otherwise complicated issue.
