The Challenge:

To abate the Lead-Based Paint on the exterior façade, window frames, cornice and the fire escapes without inconveniencing the building's occupants.


Benefits Desired:

  • Little or no surface preparation and minimum down time
  • Cost effective and long-term warranty
  • Tenacious adhesion
  • No hazardous waste
  • Tint to custom color



GLOBAL Encasement's award-winning LeadLock products met and exceeded all desired benefits. A management-in-place system was designed consisting of GE-15 Acrylic Caulk that was used to fill holes and cracks, PrepLESS Primer to lock down the loose and flaking Lead-Based Paint followed by custom tinted LeadLock Topcoat on the façade, window trims and cornice. The fire escapes were treated with PSN-12 Rust-Inhibiting Primer to halt corrosion and LeadLock Topcoat. The walk-on surfaces also received a protective coating of  Clear Coat. The building occupants were not disturbed as they would have been with a full containment and removal job.
