Salt Lake City, UT 84119
|Category||Materials and resources|
This course provides an overview of engineered resins utilized for exterior building projects and applications . Important detailson the evolution, performance characteristics, and sustainable building and design benefits that resins bring to an exterior proj ect are discussed and demonstrated. The program contains a selection of example applications where resins have b een employed to c omplete high-performing and high-design exterior projects that may be difficult to achieve with traditional build ing materials. Actual test-performance demonstrations are included in the program.
- Identify a number of resin options that can be employed to
address performance and aesthetic aspects of countless exterior applications.
- Analyze the different
thermoplastic resin performance criteria including: UV resistance, impact
resistance, abrasion resistance, cleaning and maintenance.
- Ascertain the sustainable building and design benefits of using resins in exterior applications.
- Participants will also have a comprehensive
understanding of and be able to identify the limitations that resins can help
overcome when designing the exterior aspects of any project.
