Hazardous Material Solutions
A high performance, water based, acrylic, non-toxic, low VOC, tough, abuse, rust, mildew, fire and chemical resistant coating that forms a waterproofing membrane. AsbestoSafe®TopCoat can be applied over PrepLESS Primer™ to form an AsbestoSafe® GLOBAL Encasement system for management in place of asbestos-containing materials and various other fibrous materials including fiberglass, vermiculite, and ceramic. AsbestoSafe® TopCoat is excellent for interior and exterior use, and is suitable for application over most surfaces, walls, ceilings, ducts, pipes, roofing and siding. AsbestoSafe® TopCoat functions as a bridging encapsulant and securely seals and encases hazardous fibrous materials on plaster, structural steel, Transite, and Galbestos.
Lead-based Paint (LBP) Abatement by Encapsulation/ Encasement is a proven method of lead-based paint abatement. The hazards of lead-based paint are well-known; therefore, it is essential to treat it appropriately. Any house or building built before 1978 may have lead based paint that needs abatement by Encasement/ Encapsulation. The LeadLock™ Encasement System offers protection from the hazards associated with exposure to lead dust and lead-based paint chips. Removal of lead-based paint is not always feasible from a physical or economic standpoint. As a result, Lead-based Paint Abatement by Encasement/ Encapsulation is becoming a widely accepted and trusted technique for the removal of lead-based paint.
We specialize in all aspects of painting, including but not limited to the following:
Painting of walls, doors & frames, columns, convector covers, exposed ceilings, gypsum wall board ceilings, and trim.
Stripping of Existing Finishes
Removal of existing wallpaper and wall coverings, chemically stripping of convector covers, elevator doors & frames, interior doors & frames, and window frames.
Skim coating over existing plaster / gypsum wall board surfaces. Including a level 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5 skim coats based on your desired finish.
Spray-Applied Fire Resistive Materials: (SFRM) are wet or dry fire resistive products that are installed utilizing spray applicators
Cementous (wet mixture)
Mineral fiber (dry mixture)
Each preparation type exhibits certain characteristics and is intended for use under different conditions, such as interior or exterior application, restrained or unrestrained assemblies, extreme weather/high temperature, and freeze/thaw cycles. A wet mix plaster fireproofing substance, using a base of Portland cement or gypsum. Can be applied to fireproof steel for a fire resistance rating of 1 to 4 hours, for both restrained and unrestrained rat
Spray-Applied Insulation is a wet-spray cellulose material that provides insulation, noise reduction, and condensation control, as well as color durability and texture for aesthetics. Spray-Applied Insulation also achieves both thermal and acoustical goals, provides a solution to difficult insulation conditions, adheres to concrete, steel, wood, glass, gypsum, fireproofing, and other insulation materials.
Intumescent Fireproofing is a thin-film coating which allows architectural features of structural steel columns, beams, and braces to remain exposed, rather than enclosed with cladding or dry wall. Intumescent Fireproofing can be colored using a decorative topcoat for design aesthetics. This type of fireproofing can be applied to interior locations such as libraries, hospitals, schools, airports, transit stations, and shopping centers. Exterior grade intumescent coatings can be applied to industrial buildings, ship or ferry marine vessels, automotive dealerships, airports, and commercial buildings where exposed steel requires a UL rating using an approved ASTM 119 system.
A process that uses machinery to blast downward at the floor steel shot which bounce off the floor and remove dirt, grease, etc. and profile the floor. The shot is recycled, and the removed debris is collected in a large vacuum. Use to prepare for coating applications and the installation of tile and terrazzo.
This process uses a motor-driven machine with horizontally spinning diamond-embedded blades that remove several thousandths of an inch of the floor. A coupled vacuum captures removed material. Concrete Floor Grinding / Diamond Floor Grinding is used for nominal leveling and smoothing out of surfaces and to prepare for coating applications. A wide variety of diamond blades are available to achieve the proper surface textures and results.
This process uses the same machines as diamond floor grinding except that the diamond blades are changed 6-7 times to successively finer and finer grits, resulting in an eventual ‘polish’ to the concrete. This is the same process as granite and marble is polished to a shine from raw material from the ground. Often used in retail stores and such due to low maintenance costs.
A process of using a machine with a hammer-type rotating blades that ‘beat’ the floor to remove old coatings and toppers. Causes the most profile and irregularity, and often requires diamond grinding to smooth out the floor if a coating is going to be applied.
The penetration from the outside to the inside from unwanted elements can be uncomfortable at best and can cause disease and illness at worst. Most of these challenges can be simply stopped or prevented. Protecting people in the inside of a building is best done by first protecting the outside of the building. That’s accomplished by sealing the exterior surface, thus making it watertight and resistant to bad weather and ultraviolet rays, creating a better environment inside the building.
Global Encasement Materials
Global Encasement materials are a U.L. approved waterproof membrane and liquid roofing system. Unlike other coatings, GLOBAL Encasement, Inc. materials breathe, and have excellent elongation and flexibility. They can move with the substrate and could allow moisture vapor to be released without cracking. The coatings are intelligent in that they have memory and can reattach themselves to the substrate.
In the past, roofs had to be torn off, disposed of and replaced when they reached the end of their short life cycle. Studies show that 42% of the CO2 emissions causing greenhouse gases, contributing to global warming/climate change, are coming from the disposal and storage of unwanted waste. All that discarded, stored, decomposing material and added expense has become unnecessary. With GLOBAL Encasement Inc. RoofCoat™ GREEN Systems there was a tremendous cost savings by instead of doing a tear-off, disposal and replacement, the existing roof was left in place and coated over with a twenty-year GLOBAL Encasement Inc. GREEN, Solar/Heat Reflective System. This system also has tremendous energy savings as well as the added cost conserving advantage of no building downtime and no personnel relocation Fees.
