GLOBAL Encasement, Inc. manufactures and sells a product know as PrepLESS Primer™. This product can be used instead of typical paint preparation and has been proven to eliminate dust and fiber release into the air. The product dries tacky and will actually allow you to back-roll loose and flaking paint chips back onto the wall, reducing any actions that would likely release dust into the air or produce hazardous waste. The product also effectively shrink-wraps the surface it is being applied over which makes it an excellent primer for use over friable or deteriorating asbestos containing building materials.
LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. It is the acronym that refers to the Green Building Rating System developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) to help encourage a reduction in energy usage and mitigate waste streams over the life of a building.

Green features such as energy and water conservation, environmentally sensitive site planning, resource efficient building materials, superior indoor environmental quality, can provide benefits such as lower electric and water utility costs, enhanced health and productivity and long-term economic returns, reduced environmental impact.
SRI is the ability to reflect or bounce back energy or heat from the surface of a building.
