SPR-4819: Synthesis Study: Review of Durability and Performance of the Latest Epoxy-Coated Rebar

The content of this comprehensive synthesis study will summarize the state-of-the-art in epoxy-coated reinforcing steel used in bridge concrete structures with two deliverables at Months 8 and 10. The final report will summarize Deliverables 1 and 2 containing the latest knowledge in epoxy-coated bars with regards to use, durability, performance, and DOT practices related to corrosion protection systems. The use of epoxy coated bars together with adequate concrete cover and quality of concrete offers the potential to extend the concrete bridge service life at a fraction of cost and downtime compared to methods without significant financial burden serving the users well into the future.
