Lead Encapsulating Paint Abatement Project

All projects and their challenges are different and their solutions should be handled on a case by case basis. In the pictures above from GEI case history #204 the LeadLock system design was a combination of R.I.P.™ Rust Inhibiting Primer, PrepLESS Primer and LeadLock™  Topcoat. This LeadLocksystem dealt with rust, pealing Lead-Based Paint and waterproofing the building all at the same time.
