Bridges and Roads

Building safe, solid, connections

The intersections of roads, highways, and bridges create a vast network of connections that people use every day to get from here to there, safely.  Ashland puts safety first, always, both at home and at work and while commuting to and from each.  We've expanded our culture and knowledge of safety to find new routes to solutions including materials that, in addition to strength,  provide both fire and corrosion resistance.  With Ashland driving with you, the fast lane provides solutions to reduce maintenance and improve strength for bridges, beams and columns to keep traffic moving and connections strong.  Don't get gridlocked, stay connected to Ashland for the best solutions.

For over 60 years the Ashland composite team has been finding solutions for a variety of transportation challenges. Both Derakane™ and Hetron™ resins can improve the integrity of both pedestrian and vehicle bridges by offering a high strength to weight ratio.  The volume of vehicles on the roads continues to increase and bridge and road repairs, that require lane closures, result in huge traffic jams and can increase the blood pressure for many drivers. In addition their high strength and low weight, Ashland resins can help lower the cost and increase the length of the product life cycle. As solvers, we work with you to  speed and ease the installation process thereby minimzing downtime and the headaches that it can cause.
