The bridge is known as the "pearl on the crown" of civil engineering. With the rapid development of China, a number of world-class super large projects are emerging, which are destined to become milestones and symbols of the new era.
Compared with large-scale construction projects such as skyscrapers, stadiums, ports and docks, bridges not only need to bear their own load, but also have to withstand the huge impact of cars and trains passing at high speed and the test of various adverse weather conditions in the open air.
With people's personalized demand for bridge steel construction, weather resistant bridge steel came into being.
Weathering bridge steel (i.e. atmospheric corrosion-resistant bridge steel) can be developed and innovated continuously after being integrated into the new mechanism, new technology and new process of modern metallurgy. It is one of the series of steel types at the forefront of Super Steel Technology in the world. Weather resistant bridge steel is made of low alloy steel with a small amount of corrosion-resistant elements such as chromium, copper and nickel. By forming a dense oxide rust layer on the surface of the steel plate, it can effectively block the infiltration and transmission of corrosive medium and reduce the corrosion rate in the atmospheric environment. With the characteristics of strength, toughness, plastic extension, forming, welding and cutting, abrasion, high temperature and fatigue resistance of high-quality bridge steel, its weather resistance is 2 ~ 8 times that of ordinary carbon steel, which can be thinned, exposed or simplified for coating. The steel has the characteristics of rust resistance, corrosion resistance, life extension, thinning and consumption reduction, labor saving and energy saving, which can benefit component manufacturers and users. The coating cost saved by using weather resistant bridge steel is generally more than 10% of the construction investment. In recent years, as a "green" new material with long life, energy saving and environmental protection, weather resistant bridge steel conforms to today's concept and national development policy guidance, and its R & D and promotion are of great economic significance.
