GLOBAL Encasement’s AsbestoSafe Green coating system was designed to repair, patch and safely seal all the surfaces. Cracked pieces of the asbestos containing transite material were repaired with GEI Seam Tape and then all gaps were filled with Globe Caulk. A coat of PrepLESS Primer™  was applied and then Top Coated with AsbestoSafe® resulting in an impact- and abuse-resistant, durable, long-lasting, washable surface.
