Comment | More

As costs associated with bridge rehabilitation have risen, overcoating has become a more common practice in maintenance painting and rehab for bridges and other structures. A new eBook from JPCL addresses the benefits and challenges the process brings with it.

Overcoating Bridges and Other Structures, a free downloadable eBook, features five articles on topics including quality control, failure prevention, selection, and working with lead paint.

The eBook, available free, is the latest in a series by JPCL publisher Technology Publishing Co.
