Equipment recommendations for general application of Global Encasement, Inc. products.
Wet Mil Gauge Instructions
GLOBAL Encasement, Inc. encapsulants must be applied at recommended mil thickness. Use the wet mil gauge instructions to learn the proper way to measure wet mil thickness of the applied coating to verify that the recommended dry mil thickness will be achieved.
Formula to Convert Wet Mils to Dry Film Thickness (DFT): WFT = Desired Dry Film Thickness Divided by % of Solids by Volume
Surface Preparation Specifications
While the use of our products require minimal surface preparation, mold, mildew, calcimine (efflorescence), chalking and rust must be addressed prior to the application of the primers and/or topcoat.
Transite Roofing and Siding
Transite is a trade name for asbestos reinforced Portland cement sold as a pre-cast corrugated sheet. It was widely used in the United States during World War II, for both wall siding and sloped roofing applications, as a durable, fire resistant construction material. Normally not coated, it was allowed to weather naturally.
