Exploring MCM/ACM Paint Systems and the Building Envelope

Exploring MCM/ACM Paint Systems and the Building Envelope

to take this course

Explore MCM and ACM panels along with the different types of paint finish systems that include solid colors, prismatic finishes, faux finishes, and more. With an emphasis on new fluoropolymer technology, gain insight into finish standards and testing as well as how the makeup and application of each finish type affects its performance.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Identify the purpose and function of MCM/ACM panels
  2. Explore the different types of MCM/ACM paint finishes in terms of application and performance (weatherability/durability) for a building envelope
  3. Discuss testing and standards for aluminum substrate finishes and the three main quantitative performance measurements (gloss retention, color retention, chalking) that contribute to the longevity of a project
  4. Explain proper installation of paint finished MCM/ACM panels in addition to other design considerations
