Contractors bidding on the cleaning and recoating of structural steel surfaces of the north tower of the Mackinac Bridge should have bids in by Jan. 6.

Approved manufacturers include Carboline, International Protective Coatings, PPG and The Sherwin-Williams Company.

Work will also include application of 6,000 feet of beam repair perimeter polyurethane sealant. The approved manufacturers include BASF, Bostick US, Chem Link, Sherwin-Williams, Premier Industrial Supply, Sika and Tremco.

A two-year bridge painting warranty is mandatory, which indicates that SSPC-QP 1 and SSPC-QP 2 certifications will be required.
