ADDITIONAL CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAMS:
Improvements to Freeze-Thaw, Salt-Scaling and Water Resistances of Masonry Mortar (1 HR)
This presentation reviews the 9-year testing and development program initiated by Edison Coatings in 2013 to understand and overcome mortar
performance problems in challenging exposures. Various additives, treatments and mortar proportioning strategies were explored for both historic and contemporary mortars, leading to development of an
optimized additive that controls air content and hydrophobicity. In addition to improving resistance to water, freeze-thaw and salts, it simplifies the repointing process, assuring more reliable
Terra Cotta & Stone Repair (1 HR)
This seminar illustrates and explores the significance of each of the various materials properties for stone and masonry repair materials. Through
examples and case studies, participants are provided with a framework for project decision-making with regard to required performance and viable options for material selection. Approaches to
large-scale repair, replication of complex glaze finishes, and the special issues revolving around wet terra cotta buildings are also detailed.
Mortar 101: Basic Things You Should Know About Masonry Mortar But Were Confused, Misled or Maybe Just Afraid To Ask (1 HR)
This program reviews the basic components, principals and standards applying to both modern and historic masonry mortars. Included are the basic
chemistry of various types of limes and cements, aggregate selection criteria, proportioning guidelines for modern and historic mortars, applicable ASTM Standards, approaches to color control and
issues in mortar analysis.
The Natural Cement Revival (1 HR)
COLOR SCIENCE IN MASONRY & CONCRETE RESTORATION (1 HR)
This seminar is offered to qualified architectural, engineering and consulting firms involved in masonry and concrete restoration. The seminar
reviews the basics of color science, explores the need for objective color measurement and communication in restoration work, and examines the various systems which have been used for cataloguing and
communicating color information. Issues of color matching, color tolerance, color retention and the practical limitations in controlling color in "real world" applications are discussed.
Methods for optimizing long term color compatibility are presented and illustrated. Strategies and new techniques for obtaining good color matches are also discussed.
These Continuing Education Courses
can be scheduled for In-House In-Service Programs.
