Selecting Exterior Topcoats Based on Aesthetic Performance, 1.0 LU/HSW (TNE006)
Participants will learn about the aesthetic performance of the most common types of topcoats, examine the effects of UV exposure on color & gloss retention, and learn how to select & specify topcoats based on expected levels of gloss & color retention performance.
Environmental Coatings Compliance, 1.0 LU/HSW/SD (TNE007)
This program will give the participant an understanding of the complexities of specifying performance-based coating systems on environmentally sensitive projects. The changing legislation of the various air districts throughout the United States, and the requirements of each, will be outlined. This understanding will allow specifiers and owners to recommend the appropriate coating system to meet the intent and requirements of both voluntary programs such as LEED and the various government mandated environmental control measures.
The True Value of High Performance Coatings, 1.0 LU/HSW (TNE008)
This program will give the participant an understanding of how to evaluate the true value of high performance coating systems including life cycle cost. Discussion will focus on the importance of selecting coatings based on their performance characteristics rather than the price of the product. Case studies and test standards will be reviewed in order to help architects and specifiers develop specifications to include quality coating systems.
Designing with Surfaced Masonry Wall Systems, 1.0 LU/HSW (TNE009)
This program will cover the various types of surfaced masonry wall systems for interior CMU walls. Discussion will center around the advantages and disadvantages of these different types of surfaced masonry and why choosing a system that provides a smooth, pinhole free monolithic surface can provide added protection for areas subjected to abuse, harsh environments and sanitary standards.
High-Performance Protection Coating Selection for Interior and Exterior Architectural Applications, 1.0 LU/HSW/SD (TNE010)
This program will cover the various types of high-performance coating systems for interior and exterior exposed architectural applications, including ferrous and non-ferrous metal, gypsum drywall, concrete masonry and concrete. Discussion will center around how high performance coating systems can provide additional protection and beautification for high-profile projects or areas subjected to harsh environments and abuse.
High-Performance Protection for Floor and Walls, 1.0 LU/HSW/SD (TNE011)
Epoxy and urethane floor and wall systems continue to gain popularity in the commercial, institutional and industrial markets due to their durability, versatility and the fact that they can be installed seamlessly, making them very cleanable. Participants will learn about the importance of high performance floor and wall systems through discussion of proper surface preparation, material selection and specification.
