Architectural Coatings Handbook Published

Friday, December 11, 2009

Comment | More

Technology Publishing/PaintSquare has issued a new book called Handbook of Architectural Coatings to provide guidance to specifiers, architects, and contractors on selection and use of coatings for commercial and institutional buildings.

 

The 245-page book focuses on the contributions of coatings to energy efficiency throughout the building envelope and to achieving interior and exterior finishes with both durability and green attributes.

 

The Handbook was created from a compilation of the best features published over the last 5 years in the Journal of Architectural Coatings. Authors include noted architects, engineers, consultants, and leading coating technologists, who have provided their insights in the following subject areas:

  • Liquid-applied air barriers
  • Cool roof coatings
  • Waterproofing materials for masonry substrates
  • Coatings for esthetics and protection of exterior concrete
  • Coatings for curtain wall metals
  • Floor coatings and treatments
  • Decorative and other interior finishes
  • Generic coating types and their capabilities
  • Special purpose coatings, such as anti-graffiti and fire-resistant
  • The role of coatings in high performance buildings, such as schools and hospitals

The book is offered in both a soft-covered print version and as a pdf download. It can be acquired by linking to an order form at http://www.paintsquare.com/jac_handbook
