New principles of construction, modern methods of assembling and new paints and coating procedures have led to further improvement of the corrosion protection of steel constructions in the last years. Now as ever passive corrosion protection procedures, metallic or organic protection coatings and the combination of these two kinds (duplex systems) are preferred at steel erections and bridges. Corrosion protection systems, which needs little maintenance, are in front. Ground coatings with cathodic protection effect and the choice of the top coats adequate to stress conditions are the most important criteria.
