Golden Gate Bridge – Performance Trial

Project: Evaluation of Premera T2 MCM as an anti-oxidative clear coat over existing paint system consisting of zinc primer and acrylic base coat

Client: Golden Gate Bridge

Area: 2000 Square Feet

Location: San Francisco, CA

Date: August 2012

Customer Need: The Golden Gate Bridge repainted its towers for its 75th anniversary. The Bridge Authority was exploring the use of coatings which provide graffiti protection in the high traffic, high visibility areas. The day after they repainted the bridge, the bottom 12 feet of the towers around the walkways was coated. After more than 8 years, oxidation of the Premera coated area has been inhibited.

Value Delivered: Currently, the Golden Gate Bridge Authority is evaluating the option to use T2 coating to extend the repaint cycle from continuous to once every 10 years.
