Abstract

This article identifies the coatings applied to many substrates for both beautification and protection, and the inherent conflicts that exist between the coatings and the buildings they are designed to protect; emphasis is placed on masonry walls. It provides information on the purposes of the coatings in the commercial buildings. The article briefly describes some of the most common types of substrates found in buildings and the coatings commonly associated with each substrate. The selection of the coating system depends on the substrate and service expectations. The article addresses the primary causes of masonry coating problems and also provides a detailed discussion on the wall design considerations, moisture considerations, and coating system challenges in the masonry buildings.
