This course will provide architects and designers education about silicone-based coating technologies that can be specified as an alternative to ceramic frit for spandrel glass applications. Attendees will learn how spandrel glass is used on a facade for aesthetic value and functionality. Specific factors related to high-performance silicone coatings will be discussed, including sustainability, thermal stress breakage mitigation, visual harmonization, and color-matching capabilities.

Learning Objectives: After completion of this course, participants will be able to understand the following:

  1. High-performance silicone coatings as a healthy and sustainable alternative to other spandrel glass materials
  2. The value of rigorous testing to prove longevity and application suitability
  3. Considerations when specifying silicone opacifiers on spandrel glass
  4. The advantages of using silicone coatings in design to prevent hazardous solvents, heavy metals, and high VOCs in the environment
