Corrosion Evaluation of Novel Coatings for Steel Components of Highway Bridges

The objectives of this project are to: (1) Identify novel coating systems for corrosion mitigation of steel that are commercially available and that may be applied to steel components of highway bridges and obtain samples from industry for testing; (2) Resolve compatibility of the coating system for bridge environments of interest to the department. This includes identifying possible degradation mechanisms of the coating system in environments representative of aggressive environmental conditions in Florida. (3) Assess important parameters for corrosion durability of the coating systems. (4) Ascertain if the coating systems may fulfill the needs of the department and provide recommendations for further steps to implement the coating systems for application to highway bridges.
