An old railway bridge between Voikkaa and Kuusaa has been used as a non-motorised traffic route since the 1980’s. The renovation started in April 2019 and it has progressed well, with one third of the bridge coated so far with Nor-Maali products. Application is done according to the Finnish LIVI B.1 SILKO painting system.
Our customer Korroosiotyö Korkal is responsible for the coating work done on this over 220-meter bridge. The total area to be coated is approximately 30 000 square meters.
The project is due to be completed in September 2019.

Products used in this project
Normastic 405 AL is a high-solids epoxy based coating, which can be applied in high film thicknesses. Contains micaceous iron oxide and aluminum pigments. The product contains special ingredients, which penetrate through existing rust. The product is used on steel surfaces as a primer in corrosion classes C2-C5. It can be used as a single coat aluminium colour on box girders and plate structures. Also suitable for maintenance painting on deep-seated rust and old painted surfaces. Most common applications are bridges, paper machines, navigation marks and ships. Normastic 405 AL can also be used for immersed service in fresh and seawater.
Normastic 405 is a high-solids and micaceous iron oxide containing epoxy based primer and topcoat, which can be applied in high film thicknesses. It is used as a primer or top coat in corrosion classes C2-C5. Can be used as a single coat on box girders and plate structures. Like Normastic 405 AL, it contains special ingredients, which penetrate through existing rust and it is suitable for maintenance painting on deep-seated rust and old painted surfaces. On concrete surfaces, it is recommended as a protective coating for both walls and ceilings in corrosion classes C2-C5.
Normadur HB is a semi gloss acrylic polyurethane topcoat, that also cures at low temperatures. It is recommended for use as a topcoat on steel structures, ships, containers and vehicles in epoxy and polyurethane paint systems in corrosion classes C2-C5. The product has a good gloss and color retention. Can also be used as a primer in polyurethane paint systems and as a single coat on steel surfaces in corrosion class C2.
