We are proud to be a part of the innovative plans of the Pennsylvania DOT to protect its structures.  Every state has its own STIC program,initiated by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the STIC puts highway community stakeholders in each state in the driver’s seat to choose the innovations that best fit their needs and get those innovations into practice quickly. 

PHILADELPHIA, PA, OCT 17 2016 — Initiated by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the State Transportation Innovation Council (STIC) puts highway community stakeholders in each state in the driver’s seat to choose the innovations that best fit their needs and get those innovations into practice quickly.

Included among the various methods being adopted by the STIC as best practices is the use of Elastomeric Spray Membranes for waterproofing and crack bridging. While not strictly a “new” technology, this method of protecting new and aging infrastructure has benefits many other traditional coating technologies cannot easily match — durability, flexibility, and quick return to service being the foremost differences.

As transportation infrastructure begins to age, remediation and rehabilitation becomes a financial concern for many local and state governments, and employing to systems that allow for extended life from existing roadways is more appealing than total reconstruction. Through the use of elastomeric spray membrane waterproofing systems, projects can proceed more quickly, withstand heavy use, and give more flexibility for the future.
