Treating a Gasoline spill


               Treating a Gasoline spill


A Case Study:

    To enhance the performance and sturdiness of strengthened concrete covers on bridge support, supplementary security arrangements are frequently required, especially in refurbishment circumstances. Typical efficient security systems for bridges can be classified as `impregnations, sealing impregnations, exterior coatings, or corrosion inhibitors. These are developed for use in multiple circumstances or collectively in alternative combinations, to greatly reduce damage to the concrete surfaces and to stop or significantly reduce the rate of steel reinforcement corrosion. Thus preventing the even more significant structural damage, that would otherwise occur.
    Requirements



    •     Protection against the intrusion of water, chloride and carbon dioxide
    •     High protection against UV radiation
    •     Resistance against frost and wide heat variations

                                              Is corrosion destroying your bridge?                                                                              

     

     Bridges and tunnels must continually be examined and stored in a safe and advantageous provision to shield users and preserve architectural life. Bridges and shafts with exposed reinforced concrete elements are vulnerable to corrosion, often initiated by de-icing salt ingress through faulty joints or low concrete cover. If corrosion induced spalling results in debris collapsing onto roadways or railway tracks, then interruption can be significant. When it comes to accessing the construction to repair the damage, expenses can increase and track, or lane closings can cause severe delays to travelers.

    Most corrosion control systems offer long-term maintenance-free protection, eradicating the need for multiple patch jobs with connected high access costs. Our unique technology, which is entirely compliant with international measures, accurately targets heated points of corrosion, from bearing shelf to the beam and from column to deck soffit, extending organic life and minimizing life costs.

    ArmorThane has extensive experience of providing both the private and public sectors with bespoke corrosion management solutions for bridges and tunnels. From trying out and assessment works to solution design, ArmorThane can help you every step of the way.
