The Uncoupling Principle

10:15 AM - 11:15 AM

This seminar will examine the Uncoupling Principle, which is now recognized in the Tile Council
of America's 2001 Handbook for Ceramic Tile Installation.
Review the history behind the Uncoupling Principle and examine the evolution of tile setting
techniques, along with the benefits and limitations of each stage of development.
The individual functions that are inherent to an uncoupling system will be discussed and the
major implications for tile and stone installations revealed.

At the end of this program, the participant will be able to: 1) comprehend the basics of the
uncoupling principle and its relationship to the tile and stone industry; 2) recognize new areas of
installation that can be attained through the utilization of an uncoupling system; and 2) interpret
and apply the new details and applications found in the current TCA Handbook.

Sintered Compact Surfaces for Building Facades

11:15 AM - 12:15 PM

Materials used on building facades need to withstand many things, including water, wind, sunlight, and sometimes severe weather conditions. They also need to hold up to the effects of people who may inadvertently or even intentionally cause damage. Choosing a material to use for a facade is certainly influenced by the ability to hold up over time but also by the available size and weight, not to mention the appearance, of the material. Being able to install it in a manner that is efficient and cost-effective usually rounds out the criteria for selecting a building material for building facades. There is one new product category that will be the focus of this course, namely sintered compact surfaces that can be used for curtain walls, rain screens, siding applications, and other common wall systems for both residential and commercial buildings.
