Program Description:

There are many kinds of resin-based coatings for metal, and two primary application techniques. In this course each of these coatings and application techniques are described and illustrated, along with important information on why these coatings fail and how the performance of these coatings is measured. The primary goal of this course is to provide architects and others who work with resin-based coatings for metal with the information they need to ensure that the coated product will perform as expected and provide a durable and long-lasting finish.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this program the designer will have gained knowledge and understanding over the following:

  1. Define selected vocabulary of paint terminology.
  2. Explain the basis for using metal in construction. 
  3. Identify and describe the components of resin-based paints. 
  4. Explain the difference between a 2-coat and a 3-coat paint system. 
  5. Describe common substrates and pretreatments. 
  6. Describe the two common application techniques: Coil and Spray Coating. 
  7. List and describe the common causes of coating failure. 
  8. List and describe the main properties and tests used to measure performance. 
  9. Describe the different types of weathering: Accelerated, and Real-Time.
  10. Evaluate the results from weathering tests.
