Benefits of Professional Bridge Painting by MPC

Through our specialized sandblasting and painting services, we not only restore bridges to their former glory but also improve their resilience to future challenges. At MPC, we can transform your infrastructure, ensuring that your bridges remain safe, functional, and visually appealing for generations to come.


Sandblasting removes rust, mill scale, and old coatings from the surface of the bridge, preventing further corrosion. Painting provides a protective barrier against moisture and other environmental elements, reducing the risk of rust formation.


By eliminating rust and applying protective coatings, the bridge's structural components are preserved. This contributes to the overall longevity of the bridge, reducing the need for frequent repairs or replacements.

Enhanced Structural Integrity

Sandblasting not only removes visible rust but also exposes any hidden flaws or weaknesses in the bridge structure. Addressing these issues before painting ensures that the structure is sound and can withstand the challenges of its environment.


Painting the bridge enhances its visual appeal, contributing to the overall aesthetics of the surrounding area. A well-maintained and visually pleasing bridge can positively impact the perception of the community and attract attention for the right reasons.

Cost Savings in the Long Run

While the initial investment in sandblasting and painting may seem costly, it can result in long-term cost savings by preventing extensive corrosion-related damage and the need for major repairs.

Positive Environmental Impact

Properly maintained bridges are less likely to release rust particles or other pollutants into the surrounding environment, contributing to a cleaner and healthier ecosystem.

Regulatory Compliance

Many regions have regulations and standards in place regarding the maintenance of infrastructure, including bridges. Keeping the bridge well-maintained through sandblasting and painting helps ensure compliance with these regulations.

Our Bridge Restoration Process

With each bridge sandblasting and painting, we follow the standards set by the Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP). These are systematic approaches involving SSPC and NACE standards to ensure the quality, durability, and environmental compliance of the coating system.

  • We evaluate the condition of the bridge to identify areas of corrosion, existing coatings, and any structural issues.
  • Our team skillfully remove loose rust, scale, and other contaminants using power tools or hand tools.
  • We eliminate dirt, oil, and grease from the surface.
  • We implement proper containment and disposal practices for abrasive media, coatings, and waste materials.
  • We use materials such as tarps, scaffolding, or containment curtains to protect the environment around the bridge.
  • Additionally, we implement air filtration systems to remove airborne particulates and maintain good air quality.
  • Guided by SSPC (Society for Protective Coatings) guidelines, we choose the appropriate abrasive material. Common abrasives include garnet, steel grit, or other materials suitable for the bridge’s substrate (surface).
  • Our team conduct abrasive blasting to achieve the desired cleanliness level specified by SSPC standards.
  • We meticulously measure and verify the surface profile using appropriate tools to ensure it meets SSPC requirements.
  • We apply a primer compatible with the specified topcoat. Follow manufacturer recommendations and SSPC guidelines for film thickness.
  • If necessary, we apply intermediate coats, following SSPC guidelines on film thickness and compatibility with the primer and topcoat.
  • Our team apply the topcoat in accordance with SSPC standards, ensuring the correct film thickness and proper curing.
  • We conduct inspections at each stage of the process to ensure compliance with SSPC standards. At MPC, we will verify film thickness, adhesion, and overall coating integrity.
  • Lastly, we address any touch-ups or corrections as needed.
