Durability + Design (D+D)


It goes without saying that coatings performance matters inside and out of a building. This month D+D In Depth looks at coatings concerns on both sides of the wall. For interiors, features explore advancements in coating functionalities that go beyond decorative and protective applications, as well as considerations for paint and coating selection under LEED v4. On the exterior, we survey trends in coated metal panels and testing for color retention of exterior architectural topcoats. — AMY WOODALL, EDITOR

Waterborne Functional Coatings: Combating Noise, Heat and Air Pollution

BY LEO PROCOPIO, JUSTIN GIMBAL, DHARA METLA AND
PAUL DOLL, THE DOW CHEMICAL COMPANY

Coatings are constantly being asked to go to greater extremes, such as lower VOC and higher performance — and some are being tasked with other functions beyond the typical protective and aesthetic aspects of coatings. This feature delves into specially designed waterborne functional coating technologies that combat heat, noise and air pollutants like formaldehyde, including examples of where the functional coatings could be used in industrial and commercial settings.

From Start to Finishes: Innovative Coating Solutions for Metal Panels

BY DAVE DONOVAN, CENTRIA COATING SYSTEMS

Metal panels may have a long history as a building product, but advances in architectural coatings technology have allowed manufacturers to enhance their aesthetics, durability and even their role in sustainable building design. Learn more about the latest performance and aesthetic features for metal panels, what trends exist in the industry, and when and where they are relevant.


Estimating Color Fade of PVDF-Based Topcoats: For ‘Bright Color’ Architectural Restoration and Protective Coating Applications

BY KURT WOOD, ARKEMA INC.

Although many topcoat standards for architectural and protective coating applications include a durability requirement based on the accelerated weathering performance of a white coating, there are currently no standards for field-applied coatings which address the needs of specifiers who want to ensure durable color performance in saturated or bright colors. Discover what path might be taken to set performance standards for PVDF-based coatings.


Liquid-Applied Air Barrier Brand Performance: Panel Discussion at the Upcoming Material Selection Conference

BY DAVID DE SOLA, 3IVE

If you need to gain a better understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of specific brands of air barrier coatings, what is better than hearing a group of supplier representatives discuss the merits and performance of their specific brands — and answering your questions. Learn more about the broad range of construction and application scenarios that will form the basis of this discussion at D+D’s Sept. 26 Material Selection Conference.
