In this one hour course, we will evaluate low maintenance protective coatings as a solution for many common problems encountered during the life-cycle of building. Some of the easily recognized benefits of an easy to clean coating including a decrease in environmental damage to exterior glazing, significant reduction in building maintenance, improved photo-voltaic performance, and enhancement of the forward-facing aesthetics. Additionally, we will explore a variety of applications, from shower enclosures to exterior glazing, while simultaneously explaining the operational, environmental and inherent benefits to this technology. The course will conclude with an evaluation of how protective coating can help the building achieve LEED v4 certification.
- Describe the environmental benefits of protective coatings.
- List the operational impacts for building exteriors treated with low maintenance protective coatings.
- Asses how the use of protective coatings can contribute to LEED v4 BD+C credits
- Identify problems resulting from environmental damage to glazing.
