The Challenge:

The need for safe, cost effective solutions to both
asbestos and lead-based paint. Any solution had to
be environmentally sound and minimize hazardous
waste generation.

Benefits Desired:


  • Class A fire-rated
  • Long-term solution
  • Minimal hazardous waste generation
  • Impact and abuse resistant
  • Cost effective
  • Minimum to no downtime


GLOBAL Encasement’s Class A fire-rated, durable, high impact, and abuse resistant systems were chosen to solve several issues. Facilities Management staff loved that the primer could be used to re-attach a combination of lead-based paint and asbestos. It was also used on an exterior cementitious ceiling. AsbestoSafe® was used to encase over 50,000 square feet of sprayed-on fireproofing in the crawlspace above the gymnasium ceiling.
