The Challenge: 

This building was covered in peeling and flaking lead-based paint on its exterior walls. They needed a quick and cost effective way to abate the lead-based paint with minimum surface disturbance and hazardous material generation. A long-lasting system to protect the exterior walls from weathering due to winds, rain, fog, salt sea air, and smog was also highly preferred.



Benefits Desired:

  • Green and Super Compliant Zero VOC Coatings

  • Seal in the Lead-Based Paint 

  • Cost Effective

  • Minimum Surface Preparation 

  • Waterproof Exterior Walls

  • Sustainable, Long-Lasting

  • Durable, Impact Resistant

  • 20 Year Renewable System



GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.'s products were selected to encapsulate the lead-based paint because the coatings were tested over Lead-Based Paint and passed ASTM 17-95. Also required was a coating that is  durable, resistance to extreme weather changes and damaging UV rays. The LeadLock system's unique ability to minimize surface preparation, reduce the generation of hazardous waste and its 20 year system provided the cost-effective, tested and proven solution they needed to get the job done.
