Transmission Tower and Pole Painting: A Challenge for All Involved

by Matthew McCane, PCS, Greenman-Pedersen, Inc. and Curt Hickcox, PCS Public Utilities Maintenance, Inc.

That our electrical transmission system is aging and degrading from corrosion is a given. The good news is that this process can be controlled, costly line failures due to corrosion can be minimized and the system’s reliability can be improved by taking a proactive approach to structure maintenance. This article describes the cornerstone of this approach including the use of a properly executed maintenance program that requires an acceptable technical specification, a qualified contractor and professional quality control. This type of program has repeatedly proven to ensure the long-term, cost-effective protection of transmission structures.


Sustainable Steel Bridge Maintenance: The Role of Paint in a Life-Cycle Assessment

by The CEPE Protective Coatings Sector Technical Committee

Coating manufacturers have long contended that the extended maintenance intervals made possible by the use of high-performance, highly durable coating systems, far outweigh their initial contribution to the eco-footprint of a structure when the benefit that accrues from the use of coatings is taken into account over the whole of its life. The authors discuss a study to test this contention, quantifying the effect of coating systems of varying durability (and hence varying maintenance requirements) on the environmental impact of a steel bridge over the course of its functional life.


The Development of Corrosion Resistant 2- and 1-K Waterbased Zinc-Rich Paints

by Kenichi Nakamura, Roval, Japan; and Pascal Verbiest, Ph.D, EverZinc, Belgium

This article explains the formulation and performance of a waterbased (WB) zinc-rich paint, with 95-percent zinc content in the dry film, that is able to provide corrosion protection to steel equal to that of hot-dip galvanizing.
