Port of San Francisco, California USA


The Challenged:

This newly converted waterfront park would soon be open to the public. Safely preserving the historic maritime structures while containing the leaded surfaces meant halting the corrosion & safely sealing in the existing lead-based paint with an approved coating. Protecting the landmark structures of the crane tower & other celebrated buildings needed a proven solution in order to halt & prevent future metal corrosion & provide long-term protection to defend against harsh weather.


Benefits Desired:

  • GREEN & Environmentally Advanced
  • Halt Rust & Prevent Future Corrosion 
  • Seal, Waterproof, Protect Surfaces
  • Sustainable, Long-lasting, Renewable
  • No Demolition or Generation of Waste
  • UV, Chemical & Weather Resistant

GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.’s (GEI) award-winning green coatings were chosen for their durability, resistance to wind, salt sea spray & damaging UV rays. GEI’s R.I.P.™ Rust Inhibiting Primer was applied to halt & prevent future corrosion. Then all the surfaces were sealed with GEI’s Your Last Coat, a sustainable, renewable, defensive green coating.
