Exploring Concrete Roof Deck Moisture Issues

When: September 30th

Time: 2pm EST

Earn: 1 AIA/CEU Credit

Description:  During recent years we have seen a climb in moisture-related issues involving concrete roof decks. Experts are starting to see a trend in issues coming from roofs that seem to be properly installed, maintained, and are not exhibiting any leakage. However due to numerous reasons like changes in system build-ups, accelerated construction schedules, an increase in using light-weight structural concrete, and year-round construction in all climates we are seeing these issues more frequently. This course will explore key issues, potential remedial approaches in different problematic situations, and provide preventative measures.

Sika Control NS Technology for Drying Shrinkage

When: October 7th

Time: 2pm EST

Earn: Non Credit

Description:  Sika has recently introduced a new technology to their admixture portfolio. The technology is a unique hybrid shrinkage compensating/reducing admixture, SIKA Control NS. By using a dual mechanism approach the product works to prevent both drying shrinkage as well as autogenous shrinkage and the associated cracking and curling. As a result of decreased cracking, the infiltration of water, salt and other aggressive chemicals is reduced thereby resulting in improved durability and sustainability. The end result is a structure with an improved life-cycle and lower maintenance costs. Join us to learn more!
