No traditional paint could be applied over the peeling paint and provide adequate adhesion to the metal surface. There was also an issue of corrosion on the metal clad bell tower. The system chosen needed to be able to cover the existing coatings and provide excellent adhesion and corrosion protection.
The Safe Encasement System consisting of SE-110CI was chosen for its excellent adhesion over previously coated surfaces and for corrosion protection. The SE-120 was then applied as an intermediate coat. The SE-170MR was applied as a Gloss Finish coat to complete the system.
