Abatement by Encasement: Safeguarding People while Saving MoneyTM

Ctr.Congregational Church – Manchester, CT

Case History

Property:

Center Congregational Church

Location:

Manchester, CT

Challenge:

Located near a main, busy intersection and on the same street as the local lead abatement control office, there was a need to abate the damaged paint in a way that minimized any dust release. The work also needed to be done while the Child Care and Church Elementary School were kept operating.

Solution:

Surface preparation included carefully removing the damaged paint that was very loose, then stabilizing the remaining painted surfaces with SE-110 Penetrating-Stabilizer (primer). SE-151 sealant was used to weatherize around windows, doors and trim and for some minor repairs. SE-120 Protective-Skin topcoat was custom tinted and applied over all of the aging painted surfaces. The client and authorities were both very pleased with the results from using encasement.
