The Challenge:

AKD Co., Ltd. needed a cost effective, environmental solution to address and arrest the rust corrosion and restore the facility roofing and walls. The existing paint on the roofing and walls were badly peeling and cracking. Much of the steel surfaces were exposed and rusting.



Benefits Desired:

  • Green, Environmentally Advanced Coatings
  • Little to No Surface Preparation
  • Halt Rust and Corrosion
  • UL Listed Waterproofing, Durable, Breathable
  • Cost Effective
  • Solar Reflective, Huge Energy Savings
  • Custom Colored
  • Sustainable, Long-Lasting
  • Renewable Solution
  • Twenty Years Warranty






A simple cost effective system was designed. The R.I.P.™ Rust Inhibiting Primer was first applied to spot prime and halt all the rust and corrosion. This was followed by applying the GEI Seam Tape on all the joints and then finished with 32 mils of Your Last Coat. GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.’s high performance, super compliant zero VOC GREEN coatings not only safely protected the facility from rust and potential future corrosion, but also revived the facility with a durable, long lasting and renewable, waterproof membrane making it weathertight.
