Thanks for sharing the link. Will take a look!
Regarding integrating new products, usually we have most success on the design side when there is a specific use where other materials just do not compare. An example is the Aerolon coating (by Tnemec) which mitigates condensation due to thermal bridging. I’ve had several projects due to structural loads anticipated where we wouldn’t use a thermal break (like Fabreeka) and thus at those canopies or balconies, we were able to use the Aerolon coating although at the time it wasn’t particularly well-known or used.
A couple things to keep in mind and prepare for: (writing this before perusing the site, so forgive me if these are answered in the website):
- application. can this coating be applied and repaired in the field with equipment already present? Or, is shop application preferred? What level of self-healing does the coating have?
- fire performance: what is the ASTM E 84 performance of the coating?
- life time/cost: does the coating need to be maintained? If so, at what interval? And, how much time does the coating afford the material? Are there case studies? And how much the initial cost of the coating (material and install) per unit of area?
- regarding corrosion damage: is this prevention of oxidation due to moisture or the elements? And/or does this coating have the ability to prevent galvanic corrosion (corrosion between dissimilar materials)?
