Durability & Design (D+D), the trade magazine focused on architectural coatings for the built environment, will be hosting a one-day Material Selection Conference, September 26, 2017 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The program is designed to help owners, architects, contractors and other building industry professionals determine the best coating systems to manage moisture intrusion into exterior walls, and the best liquid-applied air barrier designs to limit heat, air, and moisture transport through walls.
In each of two panel sessions, a panel of industry experts, including manufacturer representatives, will discuss how their specific brands perform in different climates and indoor environments, and on different substrates. Sto will be presenting in both sessions – one focusing on coatings and the other on liquid-applied air barriers.
Attendees should leave with a better understanding of the effect of permeance on exterior wall coatings; learn how to determine the performance, cost and cost-effectiveness of liquid-applied air barriers; and understand the advantages and disadvantages of specific coating brands that are candidates for use on their buildings.
Attendees will qualify for 8 AIA learning credits for full-day participation and 4 credits for a half-day.
