Fascinating Silicone™ Success Story

Silicone water repellents protect the Hangzhou Bay Bridge from damage by salt water corrosion.

Protecting the Hangzhou Bay Bridge

The Hangzhou Bay Bridge, which spans the East China Sea, is constructed of concrete and steel. Silicone water repellents were selected to protect this important landmark from salt water corrosion, which could damage the structure and deteriorate its appearance. Silicone water repellents penetrate the pores of concrete and make the surface more resistant to water penetration.

Today, you will find silicone water repellents at work from the ports of southern China to the highways in Beijing.
