Coatings supplied by International Paint are being used for the east span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. The east span had to be rebuilt after being damaged by the Lorna Prieta earthquake in 1989.

International Paint was selected as the sole coatings supplier for the project by Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industry Group Ltd. (ZPMC), which supplied the steel structures for the east span rebuild. The sections were coated in China and shipped to the U.S. for installation.

The project used a total of 500,000 liters of International coatings, including inorganic zinc-rich primer Interzinc 22, which provides long-term corrosion resistance; and Interfine 979 acrylic polysiloxane finish, which gives excellent color and gloss retention. The coatings were manufactured at International Paint's factory in Suzhou and come with a 20-year warranty.

A ceremony was organized at ZPMC's Changxing island base on to celebrate the completion of the project. ZPMC chairman Xuezeng Kang announced that all products had met the design standards and passed U.S. inspection.
