Innovative Coating Systems for Steel Bridges: A Review of Developments

by Mike O’Donoghue, Ph.D., Vijay Datta, M.S., Stan Walker, Terry Wiseman, Peter Roberts, and Norb Repman, International Paint LLC

The authors summarize several advances in bridge coating systems made mainly over the past 15 years. Conventional three-coat systems for bridges are described, as are relatively recent advances in two-coat technology for rapid recoating, polyaspartic-polyurethane topcoats, polysiloxane topcoats, and a high-ratio calcium sulfonate alkyd system. The authors include relevant laboratory results, practical issues with coating bridges, and case histories.
