Denso North America makes high-quality corrosion-prevention and sealing solutions for infrastructure workers across Canada. A broad range of customers, major municipalities to pipeline corporations, trusts Denso for long-term solutions. One notable example: Rainbow Bridge, which has served as a major border crossing between the United States and Canada for 70 years.
Here is how Denso has played an important role in the history of this famous bridge – specifically, Denso Void Filler.
Unaffected by water, acid, salt
As one of the top tourist destinations in the world, Niagara Falls accommodates nearly 28 million tourists and travellers every year – some of whom cross the border via Rainbow Bridge. A steel arched structure that spans the Niagara River for a distance of 950 feet, this is just one of several large suspension bridges over the river.
Denso was awarded a contract to offer anti-corrosion protection on the bridge’s stranded cable supports in 2007. To ensure a proper job, the company decided to tackle it with Void Filler. The project would require a total of 2,000 litres of this material, or ten 200-litre drums. Trusted by construction and infrastructure companies for its high flexibility and its ability to penetrate and wet existing corrosion, Denso’s unique brand of Void Filler is unaffected by water, acid, and salt, making it strong enough to protect bridges for years and years.
Almost 15 years have passed – and Denso Void Filler is still keeping the bridge protected. Denso is still proud to have been chosen as the key supplier for a project so important and high-profile, and the continuing strength and stamina of Rainbow Bridge is a testament to the company’s legacy. The bridge remains free of corrosion and deterioration as millions of drivers continue to cross it for a spectacular view – all thanks to Denso and its skills.
If Denso Void Filler is worthy to protect infrastructure at one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, imagine what it can do for other common industrial tasks. Rely on Denso for the right solutions for pipelines, roads, and more.
