ORGANIC ZINC-RICH PAINT SYSTEM RESEARCH PROJECT NUMBER 85-102: WINDGAP, SUTERSVILLE, AND HILLCREST BRIDGES. PHASE IV FINAL REPORT

KTA-Tator, Inc., has been contracted by Allegheny County to assess the performance (over a five-year period) of an experimental organic zinc-rich paint system applied to the Windgap, Sutersville, and Hillcrest Bridges. This is the final report for the study, which includes: 1) Summary of all field data collected for Phases II (coating installation and initial evaluations) and III (annual performance inspections over a five-year period); 2) Coating system evaluation; 3) Comparison of the experimental system performance to existing bridge coating systems; 4) Maintenance painting cycle for the next 15 years to achieve an overall 20-year life of this system, as well as life cycle costs for comparison purposes to other systems; 5) Recommendations; and 6) Coating specifications.
