BRIDGE DECK MEMBRANE

Bridge Deck Membrane™ is a rapid setting, 100% solids, two-component polymer product. Bridge Deck Membrane™ is used as a waterproof membrane with dielectric properties for protection against typical corrosion conditions that exist on many rail and DOT structures. Bridge Deck Membrane can be applied in temperatures down to -20°F without effect on setup time or curing, and can be applied at specified thickness in one continuous application. BDM can be sprayed horizontally, vertically and overhead at any thickness.  BDM is a superior high strength elastomeric coating designed for protection against water, salts, chemicals and other corrosive effects on bridge and elevated deck structures.
