WEBINAR: Silicone Coatings: A Risk Mitigation Strategy for Thermal Stress Breakage
Wed May 31, 2023 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
- 1 AIA | HSW LU
- 1 AIBC LU
- 1 AAA LU
Presented by ICD High Performance Coatings + Chemistries
This course will provide architects, specifiers, and façade consultants education about silicone-based spandrel glass coating technologies. Attendees will learn about the risks of thermal stress breakage due to ceramic frit’s weakening effects on heat-treated glass. Testing methodology and industry standards will also be addressed. Alternative coating solutions will be introduced as a strategy to reduce risk of thermally induced breakage in glass facades.
Learning Objectives: After completion of this course, participants will be able to understand the following:
- Aesthetic and Environmental Benefits of a Glass Facade
- What is Thermal Stress Breakage?
- Why does Thermal Stress Breakage Occur and How Could Safety be Compromised?
- What is the Solution and How is Welfare Impacted by Material Selection?
