INDIANA DOT SOLVES PROBLEMS WITH OVERCOATING

Article detailing Indiana DOT's use of calcium sulfonate/alkyd on a steel bridge over places where chipped paint was removed. The success of the project started a chain reaction that resulted in the overcoating of five bridges in Indiana the summer of 1993. Among the benefits the CSA system provided on the twin 18-span bridges were: No need to remove old paint still adhering to steel members; Minimal containment, as a CSA system requires no sandblasting to remove old paint; Low VOC emissions, making the system workable where ideal conditions do not exist and high corrosion resistance is required; Significant cost savings, with close to $150,000 on the twin Vincennes structures.
