Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the different types and properties of mold prevention coatings.
  2. Initiate and complete the coating decision-tree for structural vs. HVAC applications.
  3. Objectively distinguish between fungicidal vs. mold-resistant coatings and correlate project conditions to the clean, kill, coat concept professional remediators use for understanding the process.
  4. Use product testing to predict real-world performance and put it into practice in specifying mold coatings for prevention in new construction vs. remediation.

Specifying an antimicrobial coating is a simple and inexpensive investment that can ensure against a very high priced and disruptive future mitigation project. Most importantly, creating mold resistant surfaces can prevent growth (including spores, hyphae and particulates) known to cause a range of health effects and reduce the quality of our indoor air. As a discipline, mold remediation is now 20+ years old, and while the performance is proven, the choices and confusion have proliferated. New Construction v. Mitigation; Structural v. HVAC; Fungicidal v. “Treated Article”: this session provides definition, clarity and decision-tree insights that reflect industry standards and technology.
