This course will provide architects and designers education about silicone-based coating technologies that can be specified as an alternative to ceramic frit for spandrel glass applications. Attendees will learn how spandrel glass is used on a facade for aesthetic value and functionality. Specific factors related to high-performance silicone coatings will be discussed including sustainability, thermal stress breakage mitigation, facade visual harmonization, and color matching capabilities.
Learning Objectives: After completion of this course, participants will be able to understand the following:
- Definition of high-performance silicone coatings as a healthy and sustainable alternative to other spandrel glass materials
- Rigorous testing to prove longevity and application suitability
- Considerations when specifying silicone opacifiers on spandrel glass
- Advantages of using silicone coatings in design to prevent hazardous solvent, heavy metals, and high VOCs in the environment
