Steel and composite bridges
In Germany, components for steel and composite bridges can now be hot-dip galvanized. Scientific studies prove that hot-dip galvanizing is also suitable for dynamically stressed constructions, including road bridges. In addition proof of theoretical corrosion protection for 100 years was also provided for the individually galvanized bridge components.
The use of hot-dip galvanized reinforced steel is not just recommended for seriously stressed bridge copings but is also sensible for all concrete bridge components.
