Challenge & Solutions for Tile Installation

8:00 am - 10:00 am

This seminar will present the fundamentals of modern waterproofing technology and how it compares to traditional waterproofing systems, coordination of trim profiles to improve the integrity of tile installations, and the examination of the Uncoupling Principle with a focus on individual functions that are inherent to an uncoupling system. Learning Objectives: 1. Identify the benefits and challenges associated with tiled showers. Identify the trim profiles and understand their basic design and function. Comprehend the basics of the uncoupling principle and its relationship to the tile and stone industry. 2. Understand the proper design and execution of tiled shower waterproofing systems. Diagnose common transition issues and learn how to select proper edge protection treatments. Recognize new areas of installation that can be attained through the utilization of an uncoupling system. 3. Recognize the benefits of bonded waterproofing technology and how it has revolutionized tiled showers. Understand the need for movement joints in tile assemblies based on current industry standards. Interpret and apply the new details and applications found in the current TCNA Handbook. 4. How to create a fully waterproof and vapor tight enclosure. Understand how to incorporate trim profiles into specific ceramic tile and dimension stone tile applications. How to protect the integrity of any tile installation.

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.

Benefits of Ultra Low Permeability Concrete in the Building Envelope – An Integral Approach.

3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

The exceptional durability of portland cement concrete is a major reason why it is the world’s most widely used construction material. But material limitations, design and construction practices, and severe exposure conditions can cause concrete to deteriorate, which may result in aesthetic, functional, or structural problems. The Portland Cement Association prescribes proper concrete coverage of reinforcing steel and a Low Permeability concrete mix design as the primary goals for “Best Practice”. A talented, seasoned contractor is the answer to the first…..Vapor Lock enhanced concrete may be a reasonable answer to the second.
