About This Program
Fueled by demand for spaces that contribute to occupant wel l-being, owners are looking to design and construct healthier buildings and therefore, today’s coatings must meet stringent VOC regulations and offer material transparency for those seeking sustainable building certifications.
Furthermore, with the recent introduction of LEED® v4.1, the U.S. Green Building Council placed an increased emphasis on transparency of product-level decisions so design teams must figure out how to navigate different types of claims and certifications to find coatings that are third-party certified.
This discussion will provide you with the fundamentals of different paint systems and the latest technologies, so that you can specify coatings that will provide the best outcome for your client.
- Follow the steps outlined in a specification decision tree to help identify the best paint system for your project/ application
- Discuss how to earn up to three points by selecting products that will support LEED certification EQ emissions goals and maximize points for site-applied paint, coatings, and sealants
- Explain how third-party validations for paint and coatings bring transparency to Material Ingredient Reporting, and what that means to users along the lifecycle of a product
- Provide additional evaluation criteria to help you specify products that meet sustainability goals
