Making Sense of Sealants 2020

09:10 AM - 10:10 AM

Participants will learn about the different families of sealants and how to choose the correct product for each application. We will discuss the effect of UV light on sealants and the difference between structural or non structural silicon sealant. And finally, the importance of surface preparation before sealing joints.

LHT Mortar and ANSI Mortar Designations

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

This session will provide a Manufacturer perspective on tile industry standards development and the new mortar classifications. We will discuss ISO designations and the new ANSI mortar designations for; non sag (T), fast set (F), extended open time (E) and the proposed new large and heavy tile mortar (H) and how can it benefit the design professional and the tile contractor in the field? What was wrong with Medium Bed? Where did the Large and Heavy Tile mortar come from?

Sintered Compact Surfaces Basics: Design, Application & Sustainability - Neolith01

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Materials used on exterior and interior surfaces need to withstand many elements, including water, scratched, high temperatures, UV, wind, etc. Choosing a material is certainly influenced by the ability to hold up over time but also by the available size and weight, maintenance, hygiene, bending properties, recyclability, VOC, not to mention the appearance and efficient and cost-effective installation. There is one new product category that will be the focus of this course, namely Sintered Compact Surfaces that can be used for a wide variety of application interior and exterior from countertops to curtain walls applications in both residential and commercial buildings.

Sound Control in Construction

01:10 PM - 02:10 PM

This course defines the importance of sound control in the building industry where proper design can help avoid Litigation & Remediation. We will discuss building code criteria including the International Building Code (IBC-1207) and the International Residential Code. We will Identify areas where sound control is necessary for wall & floor/ceiling assemblies. We will then offer an explanation of terminologies including: STC, IIC, NRC, Use Patterns and Flanking Sound. The mechanisms of sound transmission and its attenuation will be discussed including: Mass, Double Leaf Construction, Field Damped Mass, Decoupling, Unbalancing, Coincidence Effect and Sound Masking.

Specifications Strategies to Eliminate Concrete Moisture

02:10 PM - 03:10 PM

In the macro critical path of project delivery, the installation of final floor finishes is one of the last items to occur prior to substantial completion. However, due to changes in adhesive formulations driven by concerns over indoor environmental quality, most project 09 flooring specifications require moisture testing before flooring can be installed on concrete slabs. Should/when those moisture tests fail, the project faces burdensome time delays, unexpected costs, or both.

Managing Condensation and Thermal Performance with Continuous Insulation

03:20 PM - 04:20 PM

Building codes and green building standards are continuing to raise the bar on energy efficiency and high performance in buildings. In wood-framed buildings designing for thermal and moisture management in wall cavities, as well as the air tightness of the building enclosure, are all core components to creating advanced building enclosures. This presentation will discuss the need for exterior insulation to manage heat transfer and reduce condensation in exterior walls by providing step-by-step examples of how to determine the amount of continuous insulation required to meet prescriptive code requirements depending on climate zone.

High-Performance Modified Wood: Beauty Built to Last

04:20 PM - 05:20 PM

Wood is a top material choice in construction due to its beauty and longevity. But high demand has put a strain on this natural resource, especially for the timber with greatest durability like tropical hardwoods. Today, new technology allows for the use of responsibly-sourced fast-growing timber in wood modification that yields products with the same or greater durability as those overexploited hardwoods. This course provides an overview of the wood-modification process that results in a product that’s non-toxic, highly durable, Class-A Fire Rated, environment friendly, and ideal for use in indoor and outdoor applications. This course also explains how this Modified Wood contributes to LEED v4 certification.
