It’s that time of the year again. Our special coatings section is back! Browse through technical articles including the value of powder coating architectural aluminum façade building products, and a look at the compelling value proposition of silicone coatings for flat roofs. According to market research, the cool roof coating market is expected to reach $8.3 billion by 2032—almost doubling what the market currently generates. In our latest issue, we discuss this idea and much more. We hope you enjoy this version of!
With questions of coating compatibility, sealing strategies, abatement procedures, and maintainability not seen in framed walls or masonry facades, the task of refurbishing these structures is a rapidly developing field in restoration technology.
The advantages of powder coating are numerous for aluminum building products. Powder coating offers excellent finish, strong performance, and customization, while providing a more environmentally sustainable and cost- effective solution for long-term durability.
Transparent glazing, whether window assemblies or full curtain wall assemblies, can help designers achieve a complex set of performance criteria with one product, eliminating redundant systems and streamlining construction.
This article will illuminate a few critical design considerations, including substrate selection; use of proper joining methods, flashings, solder, and sealants; natural weathering and other finishes; and staining and corrosion control and prevention.
Built environments are essential for human health, safety, and comfort. Properly constructed buildings enable us to live and thrive in any natural environment, many of which would be otherwise virtually unlivable.
According to research published last year by market research and competitive intelligence provider Fact.MR, the cool roof coating market is expected to reach $8.3 billion by 2032—almost doubling what the market currently generates.
Silicone coatings for flat roofs have grown rapidly in the marketplace, and are expected to continue this trajectory as the combination of waterproofing, reflectivity/energy savings, durability and rain-readiness properties resonate with both contractors and consumers.
Walls required to be waterproofed shall be of concrete or masonry and shall be designed and constructed to withstand the hydrostatic pressures and other lateral loads to which the walls will be subjected.
