Valspar to provide coatings for HK-Zhuhai-Macao bridge

20 February 2013

The Valspar Corporation announced that it has been selected as the major supplier of concrete reinforcing steel coatings for the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao bridge in China. When completed in 2016, the length of the bridge will span nearly 50km (30 miles) and is expected to be the world’s longest sea-crossing structure.
Valspar Greenbar fusion-bonded epoxy (FBE) coating meets the rigorous requirements of bridge building. The coating provides optimum long-term corrosion protection for the bridge’s steel-reinforcing bar, dowel bar and related bridge components; maximum flexibility for bending fabrication; and abrasion and impact resistance.
The bridge will serve as a critical hub connecting southern Guangdong province, Hong Kong and Macao.
