Comment | More

With features and expertise on coatings and materials from roof to floor, D+D: Journal of Architectural Coatings has just published its November-December issue online.

The full issue is available free here.

The new issue—the first under editor-in-chief Jennifer Kramer—includes a wide variety of articles on topics historic and current.

Topping the list is a "State of the Technology" review, a special section updating the current trends, technologies and players in the architectural coatings world. The section includes the latest activities of SSPC's new Commercial Coatings Committee, which will be meeting next month at SSPC 2013 in San Antonio, TX.

Focus on Polished Concrete

The new issue also showcases polished concrete, with "Achieving Maximum Refinement" by Brad Burns, executive director of the Concrete Polishing Association of America.

Achieving Maximum Refinement

L. M. Scofield Company and William Rawn Associates

Brad Burns' feature on "Achieving Maximum Refinement" of polished concrete will dovetail with an upcoming D+D webinar on new standards for that industry.

Burns writes about how to achieve maximum refinement in polished concrete. The feature dovetails with an upcoming D+D Education Series webinar, Architectural Specifications for Polished Concrete, to be held from 11 a.m. to noon ET Friday (Dec. 7).

The Concrete Polishing Association has been working to develop industry standards to aid in the selection and specification of polished concrete floors. The webinar presents the first outcomes of this initiative by offering an in-depth look at the means and methods used to produce polished concrete flooring.

Participants will be eligible for one AIA LU/HSW credit.

Roofing Reflections

The new issue also features a trio of articles on roofing:

D+D Nov-Dec 2012

 

Elsewhere, KTA-Tator president and SSPC Commercial Coatings Committee chair Kenneth Trimber weighs in on the ABCs of coating CMUs with Coating System Concerns for Single-Wythe Concrete Masonry Unit (CMU) Construction.

Columnist Burt Olhiser tells it Like It is! by untangling the causes behind the "Pressure to Paint," while Jamie Farny of the Portland Cement Association offers Enduring Impressions Of Historic Architectural Concrete Panels.
