Often built in harsh environments and exposed to extreme weather conditions, bridges need long-lasting corrosion protection. Hempel’s specially formulated bridge coatings ensure they stay protected for longer, to increase the lifetime of the bridge and reduce maintenance requirements.

Bridges require coatings that not only offer excellent corrosion protection, but as also durable enough to last for many years. Our range of protective coatings for bridges do just that – and can be found on bridges across the globe, from some of the world’s largest highway bridges to small bridges for pedestrians.
Coating Stonecutters Bridge in Hong Kong
With a full-span of just over one-and-a-half kilometres, Stonecutters Bridge in Hong Kong is the second longest  cable-stayed bridge in the world – and Hempel coatings are protecting the bridge from corrosion. Around 250,000 litres of Hempel coatings were used on the bridge that was officially opened in December 2009.
Tilting legs on Prague’s highest bridge
Traditional thinking may suggest that a bridges leg’s should be vertical. But this is not the case for Prague’s highest bridge, a steel-and-concrete highway bridge that carries five lanes of traffic across the Lochkov valley on the south-eastern edge of the city. The bridges pillars are set at an oblique angle, rising from the sloping embankment and tilting towards the bridges centre – and the 40,000 square metres of steel surface are coated by Hempel.
