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 under all of these conditions. It is also influenced 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. Not surprisingly, there are number of different materials that have been available to select from, some of which have been around a long time, and others that are relatively new. There is one new product category that will be the focus of this course, namely sintered compact surfaces, which have been born in the last decade. As it is becoming better known, it is becoming more popular in the United States and Canada thanks to its ability to provide superior long-term performance for basically the same cost as other common facade cladding products. Sintered compact surfaces today are finding their way into curtain walls, rainscreens, siding applications, and other common wall systems for both residential and commercial buildings.
