Integrally Troweled Cure & Polish Concrete

10:15 am - 11:15 am

This program addresses the need to properly cure and finish concrete. Discusses the current ACI recommendations and the new technology that allows dramatic time savings while Increasing quality of the finished product. Education in advanced concrete technology with the use of the power trowel alone to create a unique architectural finished product. Education in advanced methods to expose aggregate and ultra high gloss are also shown. This unique system also eliminates moisture loss which reduces cracking and seals the surface so effectively there is no additional need for moisture mitigation

Mitigating Thermal Bridging with Fluid-Applied Coatings

4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

It has become more and more evident that the performance of the building envelope can be greatly affected by thermal bridging. This presentation will discuss the use of fluid-applied coatings as a new and innovative solution to minimize thermal bridging in both new and existing buildings. We will cover some key areas of concern where a fluid-applied coating can be utilized without altering the structural design elements of the building and help in saving the owner/end user time and money.
