I-595 Interchange


The Florida Department of Transportation planned a large expansion of I-595 including the addition of several new bridges and rehabilitation of existing bridges.


The existing coating on the bridges was sound and showed very little sign of degradation or rusting. FDOT wanted a coating system that would allow the contractor to apply a clear sealer coat and a finish coat to the girders to match the coatings applied to the expansion areas.

Explanation of Work:

Carbomastic 15 was used a spot primer to build the system in areas where surfaces were prepared to bare metal.

  • First Coat: Rustbond
  • Second Coat: Carbomastic 15
  • Third Coat: Carbothane 133 LH

Coating selection was based on FDOT Qualified Products List and clear sealer coat as a bonding primer as requested.
