Coatings specifications allow an engineer or architect to specify finishes based on performance. The specifications for coatings include any painted structure such as bridges, buildings, or even signs. Within these specifications, shortcuts exist, to enable an architect or engineer to spec a coating system based on resin chemistry.
Don Lawson of AGC Chemicals Americas, LUMIFLON, will be speaking on Thursday, February 6th at 9:30AM. Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) Evaluation of Single Layer Coating Performance in Corrosive Environments.
University of Western Australia’s world-class Business School was designed by Woods Bagot Architects in Perth, Australia. The nearly 162,000 square-foot building sits at the southern entrance of Western Australia’s oldest university.
565 Great Northern Way and Pavilion is a commercial and retail development by powerhouse architecture firm Perkins & Will in Vancouver, Canada. The project, adjacent to the Emily Carr University, features a seven-story office façade and one-story retail pavilion.
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.
