The Challenge:

To cost effectively and safely manage-in-place peeling lead-based paint that covered asbestos containing stucco on the exterior walls of a middle school with no down time to the school or waste generation.


Benefits desired:

  • Class A Fire Rating
  • Long Term Solution
  • Little to No Surface Preparations
  • Waterproof
  • Mold & Mildew Resistant
  • Non-Toxic and Safe for Around Children
  • Cost Effective
  • No Hazardous Waste Generation



A GLOBAL Encasement system was designed. PrepLESS Primer was used to secure the surface and prevent exposure of lead-based paint and lead dust, while stopping asbestos fiber release. The AsbestoSafe® was then used to provide a durable topcoat able to withstand the wear and tear of an active school environment.
