The perfect wearing course for every bridge

The perfect wearing course for every bridge

The perfect wearing course for every bridge? Then it is essential that the aggregate is not driven out and no cracks appear in the road surface for a long period of time. Himgrip NT is the perfect solution. In the past 25 years, this wearing course has been used all over the world because of the good quality and flexibility of the product.

Suitable for all substrates

Himgrip NT is a wearing course for bridge decks and other structures where a high degree of wear resistance and anti-slip is required. It can be applied to the following surfaces:

  • Steel
  • Concrete
  • Wood
  • Composite

Each substrate requires a different type of primer because of adhesion to the material. On  steel, a primer can be omitted because the wearing course adheres perfectly to steel. Optionally, an extra layer of primer can be applied if the substrate appears to be porous, for example on concrete.

A wearing course needs flexibility

An important property of wearing courses is the degree of flexibility. The wearing course is applied to a surface that moves. For example, the steel of a bridge deck is constantly in motion. The wearing course must therefore be flexible, but not so much that the aggregate (little stones) is driven out.

Save a complete work cycle

There is a shortage of good staff in construction. That is why speed and effectiveness of work are necessary. This is exactly why every construction company should choose Himgrip NT. It is a 1-layer system (or 2-layer if you include the primer) which saves a complete cycle of work. This not only means fewer working hours, but the road can also be used again sooner.

The wearing course of HIM has already earned its spurs. With applications all over the world, for example on the Tower Bridge (London) and the Tsing Ma Bridge (Hong Kong). The wearing course has now been replaced in London, but on the Tsing Ma bridge it is still functioning perfectly. The replacement time is about 20 years which makes it a good investment for the long-term. All in all: great places for a nice product.
