The Challenge:

To encase areas of delaminating and peeling Lead-Based Paint quickly discovered to be a very hazardous condition for students who attended classes there. Parents and members of the Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) actually picketed the premises.


Benefits Desired:

  • Class A Fire Rated
  • Little or no surface preparation
  • No hazardous waste generation
  • No VOCs
  • Non-toxic
  • Protection from Lead Poisoning



GLOBAL Encasement's LeadLock™ System was chosen to manage the Lead-Based painted surfaces. The quick drying and easy to install PrepLESS Primer and LeadLock TopCoat System allowed the hazardous condition that was discovered on a Friday to be corrected that weekend.
