Breathable Paints & Mortars – Online CPD

This free 1-hour CPD explains the breathability of paints and mortars and their performance.

Often seen first but thought about last, how you paint a building can be an essential part of protecting or improving a building's performance and appearance.


1 Hour Online, 1-2pm

With so many options on the market, it can be difficult to choose which paint is best for your project. This CPD will provide the essential information to allow you to evaluate which paint to use for various backgrounds and how to avoid common issues.

We will cover several topics, including:

  • What is breathability and why it’s important
  • Moisture management within mortars and paints
  • Differences between modern and historic paints
  • The properties and benefits of mineral paints and how they work
  • Performance considerations for new builds, renovations and historic buildings
  • Environmental and health considerations

There will also be an opportunity for an open Q&A session. Participants can request to receive a certificate for one credit hour of continuing professional development.
