The Benefits of Glass-Reinforced, Graphite-Infused Composite Cladding

Approximately 1 hour

Exterior cladding must be long lasting, maintenance-free, and aesthetically pleasing to meet the design demands of property and homeowners. An innovative composite cladding solution, developed with a patented technology that incorporates glass-reinforced polymers and graphite-infused polystyrene, meets and exceeds these requirements. This course describes the design challenges property and homeowners often face when selecting cladding, and it offers a solution. Performance characteristics such as thermal resistance, wind load resistance, and fire ratings are discussed. Installation techniques and a case study are also examined.

Presented by Ryan Driggs, Florida; Nick Giorgi, Maryland; Brandon Gonos, Ohio; Sam Savides, Illinois; Mike Spera, Virginia on behalf of Associated Materials - Alside.
