Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – SAFE ENCASEMENT ACQUISITION

On October 24th, 2017 CSI Paint purchased Safe Encasement Systems from founder John Thoburn. John is a one of a kind, genius level, problem solver who has been an outside the box thinker and successful entrepreneur of this company. He’s proud to be able to pass the torch to us at CSI paint as we’ve had hands on experience with these products as distributors and inspectors for over 30 years.

John is excited to see that his legacy will be carried on long after his time with us expires. Below is a picture of the principals involved in the transaction (John Thoburn and Scott Williams). This was “signing day” after we shook hands on the sale agreement along with Steve Arampatzis of CSI Paint who’s been the eyes and ears in the office and in the field for John and Scott for over 30 years:

 

 

Mold & Mildew

Mold Remediation
Mold and Mildew Control Coating Solutions

Without POISONS
[Contains NO Pesticides or Insecticides]

 

Concerns about Indoor Air Quality have been increasing as the public becomes aware that exposure to mold & mildew can cause a variety of health effects and symptoms.

SAFE Encasement Systems provides products for mold & mildew remediation that are safe to use in homes, apartments, hospitals, schools, ventilation ducts, and for mold control where exposure to pesticides or insecticides can cause health concerns or other allergic reaction issues. Our encasement systems are water-based, non-toxic, cost-effective solutions that address the Indoor Air Quality issues building owners and managers face today.

Advantages of Encasement for Mold & Mildew Remediation

  1. Mold and mildew resistance (passes ASTM D-3273/D-3274) without any EPA Registered pesticides, thereby avoiding risks of possible allergic reactions to pesticide fumes that escape into the indoor environment and living spaces.
  2. The SAFE Encasement products SE-110/SE-120/SE-130/SE-160 do not contain toxic materials that require EPA Registration.
  3. Applicators do not need to be certified/registered/licensed pesticide applicators.
  4. When used in schools, parental notification is not required.
  5. Suitable for use in HVAC systems and on all interior and exterior surfaces.
  6. Class A Materials (ASTM E-84), low smoke and flame spread.
  7. Extensively tested and approved for use on asbestos and lead-based paints. Superior adhesion on all kinds of surfaces with minimal surface preparation (ASTM D-4541, Pull-off Strength of Coatings).
  8. SAME COATING SYSTEM FOR ALL SURFACE HAZARDS.
  9. Encasement System is a water vapor and radon retarder.
  10. Limited Warranty on systems are available for up to 20 years.

Corrosion Control

Corrosion Control
Corrosion Control Coating Solutions for Homes, Schools and Office Buildings; and Marine Systems for Corrosion Control on Non-Submersible Applications.

 

SAFE Encasement Systems provides products for corrosion control that are safe to use in homes, schools, office buildings. Our Marine Systems are for non-
submersible applications, including ventilation ducts, floors and high-temperature areas. All of our encasement systems are water-based, non-toxic, cost-effective solutions that address the corrosion control issues people face today.

Advantages of Encasement for Corrosion Control

  1. AFFORDABLE – low-cost Corrosion-Protection-System for metal surfaces that provides a maximum of long-term corrosion protection (passed ASTM B-117, Salt Fog Chamber; ASTM D-4585, Humidity Chamber, ASTM D-2486, Scrub and Chemical Resistant, Federal Weatherization Standard including Wind Driven Rain Tests).
  2. EFFECTIVE – the Encasement Process starts with the removal of the soluble-salts that are known to cause corrosion on metals. Use SE-C*R Concentrated Soluble Salt Remover, surfaces can be pressure-washed (2% solution) or hand washed (4% solution), NO NOT RINSE. When dry, apply SE-110-CI (Primer with Corrosion Inhibitors) and follow with Protective-Skin Topcoat.
  3. EFFICIENT – the surface preparation steps for encasement does not require removal of 100% of the rust (See Installation Instructions for Metal Surfaces).
  4. SAFER – the SAFE Encasement products SE-110-CI, SE-120, SE-130, or SE-160 are low-to-zero VOC materials, and do not contain pesticides or toxic materials that require EPA Registration.
  5. VERSATILE – SAFE Encasement Systems are suitable for use inside of HVAC systems and on most interior and exterior surfaces (non-submersible). They are approved for application over lead-paint or asbestos containing materials. They are mold and mildew resistant (passes ASTM D-3273/D-3274) without any EPA Registered pesticides, thereby avoiding risks of possible allergic reactions to pesticide fumes that escape into the indoor environment and living spaces. Applicators do not need to be certified/registered/licensed pesticide applicators and when used in schools, parental notification is not required. SAME COATING SYSTEM FOR CORROSION PROTECTION AND MOST SURFACE HAZARDS.
  6. PROVEN – SAFE Encasement Systems are Class A fire-rated materials (ASTM E-84), with low smoke emissions and low flame spread. (See Technical Specifications for a listing of ASTM Tests and Approvals.)
  7. LONG LASTING – systems have superior adhesion on all kinds of surfaces with minimal surface preparation (See ASTM Test Reports).
  8. WARRANTED – Limited Warranty is available for up to 25 years.
