Special on protective technologies for bridges, highways and infrastructures.

This last 2019 issue of ipcm®_Protective Coatings presents an extensive overview of technologies to counter the corrosion of bridges, viaducts, and road infrastructure in general, such as thermal spray coatings, once limited to factory applications but now widely tired and tested even for on-site operations; FEVE resins for paint formulations with exceptional outdoor resistance; and low-environmental impact painting systems, such as the water-based ones that integrate pigments, resins, and binders tailored to guarantee corrosion resistance, but with less environmental impact than conventional solvent-based systems.

It also includes an in-depth report of the Department of Chemistry, Materials, and Chemical Engineering "G. Natta" of Politecnico di Milano about "Polymer modified cementitious coatings on concrete to control chloride-induced corrosion of steel rebars". Politecnico di Milano, and especially its PolilApp "Pietro Pedeferri" laboratory, is a centre of excellence in the world for research on corrosion control technologies.
