This course discusses the future of exterior coatings and finishes, and explains the bespoke process of achieving a site-specific, client-specific design. Using the offset gravure printing process, unique finishes such as vintage luxury metals, abstract stone and wood can be printed on various types of metals. This manufacturing process results in high-fidelity finishes capable of various fabrication types of a metal substrate, while providing a Class A Fire-Rated, durable, easily maintained and sustainable product. For exterior applications, we will discuss the advantages of using a FEVE over PVDF coatings.

Liquid and powder coatings each have particular characteristics, and a variety of nomenclature is used to achieve similar results—for example: high-performance coating of the aluminum components of a building. The architectural coatings industry has spent the last several years developing innovations in performance, durability and finish alternatives with these products. This seminar will update the design and construction community on the latest technologies to achieve AAMA compliance, improve finishes options, define nomenclature and discuss other topics that will help to correctly specify coatings.

The Village of Waunakee, Wisconsin was honored by CNN/Money as one of “America’s Best Small Towns.” It’s decidedly noticeable water tank required an update that reflected the Village’s honor. According to Tnemec coating consultant Cory Erickson, the tank’s aluminum exterior finish was nearing the end of its useful life. Additionally, condensation staining and mildew covered the lower portion of the tank.
