EPOXY RESIN PAINTS AND THEIR USE FOR PAINTING THE SURFACE OF STEEL AND CONCRETE STRUCTURES

LES PEINTURES EPOXYDIQUES ET LEUR EMPLOI POUR LE REVETEMENT DES OUVRAGES EN ACIER ET BETON.

BECAUSE OF THE INCREASING USE OF EPOXY RESIN PAINTS FOR THE PROTECTION OF CIVIL ENGINEERING STRUCTURES, IT APPEARED NECESSARY TO INVESTIGATE BOTH THE SPECIFIC QUALITIES OF THIS TYPE OF PRODUCT AND ALSO ITS LIMITATIONS. EPOXY RESIN PAINTS, RICH IN ZINC, AND EPOXY TARS APPEAR TO BE NOVEL SOLUTIONS WHICH ARE INTERESTING FOR THE PROTECTION OF METAL STRUCTURES AGAINST CORROSION, PARTICULARLY FOR STRUCTURES SUBJECTED TO EXCEPTIONALLY AGGRESSIVE CONDITIONS: DOCK GATES, BOX GIRDERS, ETC. THE ADHESION AND IMPERMEABILITY OF THESE RESINS ENSURE THAT THEIR USE WILL INCREASE BOTH FOR THE PROTECTION OF CONCRETE AND STEEL. EXAMPLES OF RECENT WORKS ILLUSTRATE THESE USES.
