Metallizing Steel Bridges In New England - It’S Growing!

Bridge Owners are always on the lookout for a coating system for steel bridges that will perform for the longest time, and at a reasonable price. Metallizing has long been considered one of the best coating systems but the lack of qualified applicators simply has not made it available as an economical option. The success of early metallizing encouraged the investment in metallizing for Owners and bridge fabricators, and spurred on its significant growth over the past decade.

The use of metallized coating on bridges in New Hampshire years ago was limited to small special strategic steel locations. The metallizing option was severely limited by lack of shop applicators. Rhode Island pioneered duplex metallized bridges, research, and interest. The past two decades have seen a rapid growth of industry facility investment for application and Owner selection of the metallizing coating. This paper presents signature New England bridges and several New Hampshire bridges with metallized coating representing the growing popularity of thermal spray coating for steel bridges.
