Hybrid Movement Joints for Architects and Contractors
Presented by Willseal & J.N. Lucas & Associates
On April 20, IMI will host an AIA-registered luncheon seminar for architects on the topic of Hybrid Movement Joints for Masonry, presented by Willseal and J.N. Lucas & Associates. Hybrid joints have an impregnated foam base with a silicone or urethane cap. Since they are always in compression, these joints can handle larger gaps and last longer than sealant and backer rod. Topics will include movement capability, durability, fire ratings, sound isolation and aesthetics. There will be a power point presentation and a demonstration of how to place these joints. Lunch is included. Cost is free but pre-registration is required.
Later that same afternoon, the seminar will be repeated for contractors, and will also include a demonstration covering common problems like inconsistent joint widths, joint material that opens up before it can be placed, temperature and moisture limitations, types of cover for very wide joints, and estimating guidelines. This presentation will be in the late afternoon and will include pizza and soft drinks.
