    SEMINAR

    KNOW YOUR PORCELAIN 

    1 - 2 P.M.|1 IDCEC hour (HSW)

    Porcelain tile is beautiful, strong, durable and ideal surface in commercial as well as residential applications. Certified porcelain excels as a versatile finish material both indoors and out from kitchens to baths, poolside to hospital hallway. Porcelain tile meets universal design and this presentation will review the latest information on using the dynamic coefficient of friction (DCOF) vs. the static coefficient of friction (SCOF) for tile surfaces that meet ADA criteria. Architects will review the manufacturing of tiles, the use of recycled content, tile grading, markings and tile applications. Numerous examples of the different types of porcelain will expand the architect’s design toolkit. Mastering the art of selecting and specifying porcelain tile, architects can comfortably choose porcelain tile to provide durability and sustainability to their projects.

    SEMINAR

    THIN, LARGE FORMAT PORCELAIN TILE

    4 - 5 P.M.|1 IDCEC hour (HSW)

    Ceramic tile is a well-known building material that has been used for interior and exterior walls and floors for centuries. While ceramic is a proven material, porcelain tile has gained in popularity because it is an improved product with superior performance characteristics such as strength, resistance to stains, and durability. The key difference is the vitrification of porcelain tile during the process of firing. Vitrification occurs when fired clay has fused together completely, so that the pores between refractory particles are filled with glass formed by heat, making the tile impervious to water.
