CH#011 - Henry Heide Plant (Transite Siding)



Henry Heide Plant (Transite Siding)
New Brunswick, NJ





The Challenge:

The need for a safe, cost effective solution to fiber release from deteriorating corrugated transite paneling.


Benefits Desired:

  • Class A Fire Rating
  • Green and Super Compliant Zero VOC Coatings
  • Long Lasting Solution
  • Present Fire Rating of the Building Would not be Affected
  • No Hazardous Waste Generation
  • Impact and Abuse Resistant
  • Cost Effective



A Class A fire rated, durable, highly impact and abuse resistant, long lasting AsbestoSafe® Encasement system was chosen to encase over 10,000 square feet of exterior transite paneling. No surface preparation was needed and the airless spray application process did not disturb the fibers, thereby eliminating the need for containment, other than overspray protection. The TopCoat could have been tinted any color but facilities maintenance personnel left it bright white for its solar reflective properties to increase the building’s energy efficiency.
