The challenge: The Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation had asbestos sprayed-on fireproofing in the maintenance hallways of this building. Looking into removal of the Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM), it was determined that the total cost would be $125,000,000 Canadian Dollars. Research into other abatement methods resulted in encasement as a viable alternative to full blown removal.
• Cost Effective
• Class A Fire Rating
• Long Term Solution
• No Building Downtime
• Twenty Year Warranty
• Highly Impact and Abuse Resistant
• Tight Seal Over Asbestos Fireproofing
• GREEN and Super Compliant Zero VOC Coatings
Results: The Canadian Ministry of Labour declared that no type 3 enclosure or negative air machines would be necessary for ACM encasement using GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.'s products. Any areas where protective coatings were not needed were masked off, then a fine mist of PrepLESS Primer™ was Sprayed on the ACM to Lock Down any Loose Fibers and Debris. This was followed by two full coats of PrepLESS Primer™, effectively shrink wrapping the ACM to the Substrate. Two coats of AsbestoSafe® TopCoat were then applied locking the ACM behind a seamless, durable and abuse resistant barrier. The abatement cost for this project using GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.'s products totaled only $7,000,000 Canadian dollars. That is a cost savings of 94% over removal, disposal and replacement of the fire proofing material.
