Mitigating Thermal Bridging with Fluid-Applied Coatings

Learn about fluid-applied coatings & building envelope performance.


Thermal bridging can have a significant impact on a building envelope’s performance. This course discusses using fluid-applied coatings to minimize thermal bridging in new and existing buildings.


Learning objectives

  • Provide an overview of aerogel particles and fluid-applied coatings, and their ability to reduce condensation
  • Explain where thermal bridging is a concern on the interior and exterior of buildings
  • Demonstrate the benefits of using a fluid-applied coating to address indoor air quality issues and reduce thermal bridging
  • Discuss the standards that address the need for continuous insulation (i.e. ASHRAE 90.1-2010)
