  •     Highly chemical resistant
  •     Seal, waterproof and protect the surfaces without trapping moisture
  •     Breathable- allows for moisture vapor transmission

Results:

PrepLESS Primer and LeadLock Coatings were Used for the Building Preservation. The Primer was Followed by GE-15 100% Acrylic Caulk to Seal Cracks Up to ¼ Inch Wide and Provide a Seamless Membrane for the Substrate. LeadLock TopCoat, Used as Waterproofing and to Lock in the Lead Salts, Provided a Smooth, Durable Finish that Preserved the Original Look of the Buildings' Historic Architecture.

PrepLESS Primer Locked in the Lead-Based Paint, Followed by 100% Acrylic Caulk to Seal Cracks Up to ¼ Inch Wide to Create a Seamless Membrane over the Substrate. LeadLock TopCoat™ was then Used as Waterproofing and to Lock in the Lead Salts. The Result was a Smooth, Durable Finish that Preserved the Buildings’ Original Historic Architecture.
