steel structures such as bridges. In , the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) released a report on a 2-year study that estimated the annual cost of corrosion in the United States was approximately $ billion dollars. Steel structures, such as bridges, are abrasive blasted to replace failing and aging protective coatings. • Polyurethanes for hard outer coatings. Galvanising steel. Galvanising is the lowest cost method of coating steel, usually with zinc. The coating binds metallurgically to the steel surface and provides a tough protection to the steel whether in transit or in place.
One of the “products” included in NTPEP is Structural Steel Coatings (SSC). It is listed under the Maintenance category. It provides data on the performance of coating systems (by manufacturer and brand names) subjected to long term (hours) salt fog exposure (ASTM B), cyclic weathering (ASTM D) for 15 – hour cycles, including color difference and gloss . National: NBPP Steel Bridge Coatings Group Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan for the AASHTO TSP2 National Bridge Preservation Partnership (NBPP) Coatings Group is a guide to help NBPP Coatings Group members serve the needs of the highway bridge community by promoting the development of long term, cost effective re-coating methods for the prevention and / or mitigation of corrosion of steel.
Some zinc-rich primers also offer near permanent corrosion protection of steel, as documented by the Federal Highway Administration, with 25+ years of recorded performance. This type of industrial coating is well suited for industrial, coastal, marine and freshwater environments. This may include use on steel tanks, offshore platforms, barges. Corrosion protection painting refers to the coating of metal surfaces with corrosion protection paint. The classification is based on the corrosion rate of steel and zinc during the first year in exposure. ISO defines three corrosivity categories for structures immersed in water or buried in soil.

and. Glenn Washer (Project Co-Principal Investigator). Wood rots and burns. Steel rusts. These are the undeniable facts of each of the major construction materials. The good news is that steel corrosion can be addressed in a cost-efficient and effective manner.
Corrosion is not a concern when steel is enclosed by building finishes, coated with a contact-type fireproofing or in contact with concrete.
Preventing corrosion on structural steel is essential to the overall integrity and aesthetics of the structure. Whether the structural steel supports a bridge, commercial building or plant, asset owners must be able to count on the infrastructure for the long haul.
Corrosion is a risk to that infrastructure. Asset owners and their corrosion engineer or. The corrosion of structural steel is an electrochemical process that requires the simultaneous presence of moisture and oxygen.
In the absence of either, corrosion does not occur. Essentially, the iron in the steel is oxidised to produce rust, which occupies approximately 6 times the volume of the original material consumed in the process. When weathering steel is used as uncoated, dense and protective rust layer forms on top of substrate base metal which keeps itself from further corrosion; when weathering steel is used as coated.

Navy, David W. Taylor Research and Development Center, Zinc-rich coatings for steel are covered by AASHTO M Cost Impact: Information from paint manufacturers indicates an average material cost of approximately $ per square foot of painted steel for a coating system with a zinc-rich primer, an epoxy intermediate, and a polyurethane topcoat.
This represents an increase in paint material costs. Polymeric coatings are commonly applied to minimize structural steel corrosion and prevent section loss when the steel is exposed to atmospheric impacts.
This corrosion mitigation technique can provide additional life to the steel but will require coating condition checks and additional maintenance of the coating over time. This book has been adapted and revised for Australian conditions from the Heavy Engineering Research Association NZ (HERA) Report R entitled 'New Zealand steelwork corrosion and coatings guide' and is the result of a collaboration between HERA, Steel Construction New Zealand, the Galvanizers Association of Australia, the Australasian.
coating • Appearance coat: Apply at least mils DFT of polyurethane appearance coat – Used for shop painting new steel intended for the coast. Can also be used for bridges where corrosion from road salt use is an issue.
Corrosion represents one inevitable factor which engineers and marine contractors must consider when designing, installing, or working around these structural sections. Because damage stemming from corroded steel can be significant, an understanding of corrosion factors, zones, and preventive measures is paramount to sustaining a piling’s.

General Corrosion - It is characterized by chemical or electro-chemical reaction that proceeds uniformly over the entire or large area of the exposed surface.
The metal becomes thinner and eventually it fails. coating systems and weathering steel are the most common corrosion prevention schemes used by state DOT’s. The data suggest that roughly 10% of all steel bridges are designed with some galvanized or metallized structural steel, perhaps limited to secondary members or sections.
Figure 2. Relative popularity of steel bridge corrosion protection. Zinc, a natural, healthy, and abundant element was first used in construction in 79 metal has a number of characteristics that make it a well-suited corrosion protective coating for iron and steel products.
Zincsexcellent corrosion resistance in most environments accounts for its successful use as a protective coating on a variety of products and in many exposure conditions. The global cost of corrosion is estimated to be $ trillion USD, which is equivalent to % of the global GDP (), according to NACE’s IMPACT Study.
The Study estimates that savings of up to 30% can be realized on the actual costs of corrosion related maintenance (not including lost revenue due to downtime) over the life of an asset.

They represent the broad spectrum of steel corrosion protection systems available which encompass cost, maintenance, corrosion protection and durability. COATING STRUCTURAL STEEL DESCRIPTION The Work shall consist of.1 Surface preparation and application of a coating system on structural steel components in the fabrication shop or in the field as described in this Specification and shown on the Drawings.
State DOT usage of NTPEP structural steel coating system test results, updated November (used with permission). 52 Corrosion Prevention for Extending the Service Life of Steel Bridges the NTPEP data. Therefore, two-thirds of the states use the NTPEP program to inform their structural steel coating .A report provides guidelines for evaluating the structural effects of corrosion in steel bridges (Kulicki et al.
). A FHWA study identified the annual direct cost of corrosion for highway bridges in the United States to be $ billion to $ billion (Koch et al. ).Assessment of the remaining capacity of corrosion-damaged steelwork is normally carried out by visual inspection, followed by full structural analysis of degraded sections.
A simplified method for quantifying the initial visual inspection is proposed, using minimum capacity curves. These are derived for the remaining capacity of steel universal beams of sections currently available in the UK.
