The use of metalizing and duplex coating to mitigate corrosion of steel bridges is expanding. TRB will host a webinar on Thursday, November 18, 2021 from 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern that will discuss how metalizing and duplex coating techniques can help with bridge durability. There is limited accelerated weathering and long-term in-situ data available, but this webinar will highlight two state departments of transportation (DOTs) that have conducted extensive laboratory investigations. Presenters will explore the performance and benefits of these coating systems. They will discuss accelerated weathering performance of inorganic zinc, sealed metalizing, and different metalizing alloys.

This webinar is sponsored by the TRB Standing Technical Committees on Steel Bridges.

Some registrants will need to pay $95 to attend this webinar. Sign into to view registration information.
