Award-Winning Hoover Dam Project
Recognized for Innovative Coating Performance at Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge – Colorado River Bridge
SPI Super Therm®, Rust Grip®, and Enamo Grip Coatings
KANSAS CITY, Feb. 1, 2011 – Superior Products International II, Inc. was recognized as the recipient of The Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) 2011 E. Crone Knoy Award.
SPI earned the recognition for the performance of SUPER THERM®, RUST GRIP®, and ENAMO GRIP coatings at the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge, also known as the Colorado River Bridge. Pacific United/Anco Services, Joliet, Ill., was also honored for its work as the applicator on the project.
After extensive testing, the SPI Coatings were selected for the railings surrounding the observation deck on the Bridge, which expects 3 to 5 million visitors each year. No other coatings could produce the level of corrosion protection, ease of application, and radiant heat reduction on the railings demonstrated by the SPI Coatings.
