Highways and Bridges

ZBAR-reinforced bridges have staying power.
The combination of cracked concrete, chlorides and moisture provide an ideal environment for corrosion, and corrosion means high maintenance and replacement costs in bridges reinforced with standard rebar.
Before ZBAR, stainless steel was the standard for harsh marine environments. Now, ZBAR provides a proven economical alternative to stainless steel that is equally effective at corrosion protection. ZBAR’s dual layers of corrosion protection provide an estimated 100-year life.
