WHO IS ENCAP SYSTEMS Encap Systems Corporation is a manufacturer and contractor specializing in lead paint abatement. Encap offers a proven solution to lead based paint problems, with several successfully completed encapsulation projects. Several million square feet of lead based paint has been encapsulated with Encap products. Encap has been in the hazardous remediation and lead paint abatement industry since January, 1988, and has successfully completed numerous projects ranging in size from $500,000 to $2,000,000.
COMPANY HISTORY In 1987, Roy E. Johnson was the founder of a system to encapsulate lead based paint. In 1988, Roy formed Encap Systems Corporation, to market the product to the Federal Government and also to public housing for the encapsulation of lead based paint. He was successful in bidding the first lead based paint demonstration that was conducted by Dewberry and Davis, mandated by the US Congress, as one of the sixteen abatement contractors chosen from one hundred and twenty five other larger companies. Encap System Corporation, under Mr. Johnson’s management, became the only contractor/ manufacturer/ minority firm that was a part of this exclusive work. Roy was a member of the Army Corp of Engineers, the Chamber of Commerce and the Urban Business Professional Association, Roy was a committee member of the National Institute of Building Science, where he helped develop the guide specifications for reducing lead based paint hazards and the lead based paint operations and maintenance work practice manual. He also served on the committee EO 6.23, of the Association of Standard Testing Methods (ASTM) where he helped develop standards for the testing procedures for lead encapsulation materials. Roy assisted in developing the State laws for lead abatement workers and contractors for the State of Ohio. Roy served on the State Lead Advisory Committee in Ohio. The system is now being used for the rehabilitation of old buildings and as a replacement for stucco in new construction.

Water Intrusion in Central Florida Homes ASTM 1601During Hurricane Jeanne in September 2004Encap Seal VA hospital water intrusion prevention project Prepared by: Dr. Mike Mullens, PE Dr. Bob Hoekstra IsabelinaNahmens Felix MartinezUCF Housing Constructability Lab August 2006
Test Equipment and Procedure Used by the University of Central Florida to determine the reasons for water penetrations, new and old stucco construction during heaving rains and hurricanes. ASTM C1601 - 04 Standard Test Method for Field Determination of Water Penetration of Masonry Wall Surfaces (ASTM C1601 - 04 2004) is a pressurized water test that simulates wind driven rain. The test measures the rate of water flow out of a closed system under a given rate of air pressure and water flow that simulates wind speed and rainfall rate respectively.

Encap Seal TM Product Data Sheet Technical data Mixing:
Use a clean container, free from foreign
materials such as petrochemical based products.
Use an electric drill mixer, approximately
400 to 700 RPM’s. Be sure mixture is blended smooth and free of lumps.
Do not dilute polymer or add water to
mixture. Do not add antifreeze, binders or accelerators to mixture at any time.
Mix measurements can vary depending on
application however the general rule for mixing is; three (3) bags of powder for one 5 gallon pail of liquid additive. Thus, one bag of powder to 1/3 container of liquid. Working Time: Actual open time after application depends upon factors such as temperature and humidity. Work time may be extended per manufacturer recommendations. Drying and Curing: Full strength is achieved in 28 days after application. Product wear can begin 48 hours after application. Encap Seal will cure under damp or wet conditions. Storage: Encap Seal dry mix must be stored in a dry area with very low to no humidity for an unlimited shelf life. Encap Bond may be stored in a closed container for an unlimited shelf life. Encap Mesh may be stored in a dry area for an unlimited period of time. Solubility: Water soluble. Clean tools and spillage immediately after with water use. For safety precautions, firsr aid and disposal See Product MSDS sheets Packaging; Encap Seal- 50 lb bag Encap Bond- 5 gallon pail Encap Mesh- 36” X 150’ roll Limitations: Encap Seal should be applied when surface and ambient temperatures are between 40° F (4.44 °C) and 110 °F(43.33 °C) During application and 24 hours after application. Surface Preparation: Remove all loose paint, grease or oil, surface should be a paint ready surface. Coverage: Approximate coverage is 40 square feet per bag to embed and coat the fiberglass fabric and to apply the final coat before the finish coat. For most applications, the substrate and method of application will determine the square foot coverage Solubility: Water soluble. Clean tools and spillage immediately after with water use. “Encapsulating and Protecting building systems for a stronger tomorrow” 1636 Acme Street, Orlando, FL 32805 / www.encapsystems.com / 407-839-4856 phone/ 407-839-4855Fax/ email: firstname.lastname@example.org Encap Systems, Inc.
