During the past several years, I have devoted considerable attention and study to bridge-paint systems and specification -- in an attempt to keep abreast with developments and current practices throughout the country. My first proposal (July 30, 1958; copy appended) was motivated by development of a then-new rust-inhibitive pigment suggested by National Lead Company. The pigment had shown considerable promise as a substitute for red lead and appeared in many respects to be superior to red lead -- on of which was economy.
