Stronghold Coatings introduces MM1018, a polymeric metal material that provides 100% force fit gap compensation for the repair of concrete and steel bridges, power plants and utility construction projects, offshore drilling rigs, wind turbines, and other demanding high-load, critical environments.
This high performance repair product provides 100% volume restoration inside the gap between bearing and construction without machining of back plate and face plate. It combines high compressive and shear strength, excellent vibration damping, and long-term corrosion protection in extreme service conditions (vibration, temperature extremes, etc.), and is resistant to weathering and aging, as well as gasoline, oils, coolants, acids, lye and more.
It is easily applied onsite, even at height, using casting or injection. This allows significant repair cost savings versus conventional disassembly/rebuild methods. It is ideal for concrete and steel bridges, railways, waterway locks, other critical infrastructure projects.
MM1018 was originally developed in Germany for the repair of steel and steel composite bridges, where materials are subject to the highest loads and stresses. More than 1,000 bridges worldwide have been repaired using this proven technology. Ideally suited for use in corrosive saltwater environments like on oil rigs, offshore wind farms, canal water gates, and other corrosive environments.
Stronghold Coating Systems is the exclusive North American supplier of DIAMANT products, the world’s “gold standard” in structural repair for critical applications. MM1018 was developed by DIAMANT and is manufactured in the USA by Stronghold in their centrally located Franklin, OH facilities which includes an extensive testing lab.
A veteran owned company, they have over two decades of experience solving tough military and industrial applications involving corrosion, porosity, release properties or cost. Extensive experience with thermal coatings for ARC, plasma and HVOF application.
