Often referred to as substrate “porosity,” substrate surface water absorptivity refers to the ability of a flooring substrate surface to absorb liquid relatively quickly. The coalescence of an impermeable floorcovering material and a non-porous concrete surface not only reduces moisture from coming in, but also from escaping.
Today, there is a growing demand for large-format ceramic and natural stone tiles. This necessitates proper specification and execution of floor surface preparation, particularly in relation to floor flatness, which is critical to successful floorcovering installation.
Even the most sophisticated metal coatings have the potential to corrode, lose color or gloss, or crack and peel. For architects, specifiers, consultants, and building owners, the only protection from these potential liabilities is a strong, enforceable warranty.
Design, specification, steel chemistry, and fabrication practices all have an influence on the HDG coating appearance. Although appearance does not affect the durability or corrosion resistance of HDG steel, it can impact the intended use of the product.
Antimicrobial compounds can aid in preventing the growth of stain- and odor-causing bacteria and help maintain the integrity of the paint or coating. These types of coatings may be used on a wide range of products in high-traffic commercial and institutional buildings, including architectural aluminum products.
