Structures throughout the transportation industry can benefit from the use of hot-dip galvanizing (HDG). Most bridge, highway, or mass transit structures, are designed for a life of 50 years or more. These structures are also often exposed and subjected to varied environments, many of which can be highly corrosive.

All structures throughout the industry have a need for durable, abrasion-resistant, long-lasting protection. The following performance benefits offered by HDG make it the coating of choice for bridges, highway elements, and mass transit infrastructure:

  • Reliable
    • Readily Available/Speedy Construction
    • Efficient/Lower Project Costs
  • Resilient
    • High Strength/Adaptability
    • Design Freedom/Aesthetics
  • Recyclable
    • High recycled content, reclamation rates
    • Cradle-to-Cradle material
