This course will provide design teams education on an alternative option for traditional spandrel glass coatings options when it comes to aesthetics and function. Attendees will learn application for spandrel glass, along with the various styles of spandrel (harmonizing facade glass, decorative spandrel and retro-fit). Attendees will also learn the benefits of high performance silicone coatings for glass as well as environmental aspects and considerations for specifications.
Learning Objectives: After completion of this course, participants will be able to understand the following:
LO1: The difference between silicone opacifiers and other materials used on spandrel glass
LO2: The environmental durability of applied silicone opacifiers
LO3: Considerations when specifying silicone opacifiers on spandrel glass
LO4: Advantages of using silicone opacifiers in design
