Chemical Dependency - When Building Materials Fail
Wednesday, October 05, 2022, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM PDT
Category: Webinars

In this course, participants will learn how chemical compositions in building materials affect their functions and how modern chemical analysis can determine the root cause when they fail. The course will introduce participants to the nomenclature and basics of the chemicals used in modern building materials. Case studies will show how chemistry is used to identify types of failure issues, as well as the analytical tools used to determine causation of the failure.

At the end of the course, participants will have obtained an understanding of how highly engineered, modern building materials are dependent upon chemistry to make them operate properly, and how deviations in those chemical components can adversely affect the performance of these materials in their intended function.

Dr. Jason Babcock, Ph.D., is the director of the chemistry group at ESi.
