The Challenge:

The need for a cost-effective solution to fiber release from deteriorated corrugated Transite roof panels and preservation of the aged and badly rusted metal wall panels.

Benefits Desired:

  • Class A fire-rated
  • Long-lasting solution
  • Little or no surface preparation
  • No hazardous waste generation
  • Impact & abuse resistant
  • Cost effective


A GLOBAL Encasement Class A Fire-Rated AsbestoSafe® System was chosen for the metal walls and the Transite roof panels. The rusted metal wall panels were treated with R.I.P.™ Rust-Inhibiting Primer followed with AsbestoSafe® TopCoat. The Transite roof panels were in good condition, no primer was needed. The airless spray of AsbestoSafe® TopCoat did not disturb the Transite fibers, thereby eliminating the need for containment, other than overspray protection.
