SAFE Encasement Systems - Midwest
Welcome to SAFE Encasement Systems-Midwest, where we develop, test, manufacture, and sell barrier coatings. We define a barrier coating as easily applied over virtually any surface via spray, brush, or rolling, then curing into an elastomeric film that will remain adhered and flexible for 20+ years. If a coating is not an elastomer and has as one of its means of aging and failure the act of becoming brittle, cracking, chipping, etc, then of course it is not a barrier.
A true tested barrier coating is an elastomer upon curing, having a set amount of flexibility both initially and 20 years later. This barrier has been tested and shown to exhibit a specified permeability for water vapor, defined as a retarder but not a barrier. As such it allows a minute amount of water vapor to breathe through, but is impervious to much larger items such as asbestos, lead-based paint, mold spores, mercury, arsenic, radon, VOC’s, or essentially everything in our world that is larger than a water molecule.
Please read further about our barrier coatings, and certainly contact us if you have any questions.
