More than 20 Years' Experience in Structural Repair & Protection
Bridges are under constant attack from environmental issues such as water, chlorides, acid rain, temperature fluctuations, de-icing processes, and freeze-thaw cycles. Extreme weather and the impact of traffic and vibration place bridges under further stresses not inflicted on other structures.
Due to the extent of such attacks, if not adequately protected, the steel reinforcing bars or stressing tendons are liable to corrode and expand. This leads to cracking and spalling of the concrete and an accelerated rate of deterioration to the structure. The costly disruption of the inevitable repair work on North America’s rail and highway network impacts both the economy and public safety.
