20 year anniversary of the Brugg railway bridge

20 year anniversary of the Brugg railway bridge

Bottrop, 12 July 2016. The “new” railway bridge across the Aare near Brugg (Switzerland) was completed in 1996. It was built as a replacement for its predecessor of 1905 of which the natural stone piers were retained for the new build, having been rehabilitated with products from MC-Bauchemie. On the occasion of the 20-year anniversary, MC Switzerland arranged an engineering conference at Technopark Brugg for 19 May 2016. This was attended by 40 structural planning engineers and client representatives. After the immaculate condition of the bridge had been confirmed during an inspection attended by all the participants, three speakers talked about the history and the construction of the bridge and related material technology issues.

MC-Color

Bottrop, 31 May 2016. Conventional coatings are often inadequate when it comes to satisfying a combination of different requirements – such as emphasising the character of the concrete, adding colour to a structure’s surfaces, providing anti-graffiti protection or additional crack bridging. With MC-Color, MC-Bauchemie has developed a completely new surface protection programme comprising three product lines and nine products. Each of these exhibits not only outstanding technical performance characteristics but also especially optimised application properties, thus ensuring that the right solutions can be found for the various problems encountered in surface protection applications.
