Abatement by Encasement: Safeguarding People while Saving MoneyTM

Case History

Property:

Greenway High School

Location:

Coleraine, MN

Challenge:

Galvanized metal decorative trim, flashing and roof top ventilators on this 1920’s era building were coated with multiple layers of flaking Lead-Based Paint (LBP). Complete removal of the paint on the flashing and trim near the top of the wall was considered impractical and would be very costly.

Solution:

The solution chosen was removal of only the very loose, flaking paint, followed by stabilization of the surfaces with SE-110-CI which contains a highly effective corrosion inhibitor.Following the removal of the damaged paint, 16-18 wet mils of the SE-110-CI was spray applied. This primer penetrated the old LBP, re-adhering any loose paint while rendering it non-friable.Custom tinted SE-120 was then spray applied over the primer at 16-18 wet mils completing the encasement process.
