ELIMINATOR® bridge deck waterproofing membrane
Extending the life of road and railway bridges
Superior protection for bridge decks
Steel and concrete bridges are vulnerable to attack by water, chloride and frost, leading to deterioration and even structural failures. Installing a high-performance waterproofing membrane is therefore an essential part of any bridge construction or refurbishment program. The ELIMINATOR® bridge deck waterproofing membrane is a cold, spray-applied solution that can outlast the life of the structure — reducing maintenance costs and traffic disruptions.
Accelerating waterproofing application
The ELIMINATOR® bridge waterproof membrane offers fast, simple and effective application. Unlike alternative solutions that are sensitive to moisture, the ELIMINATOR® membrane can be applied virtually year round, in any climate, preventing costly weather delays. It cures in just an hour, even in high humidity or low temperatures. In addition, the system features on-the-spot QA capabilities, such as the two-colour application system, that make it easy to quickly verify that the membrane is applied properly.
The world’s first cold, spray applied bridge deck waterproofing system, ELIMINATOR® revolutionised the waterproofing industry. Airless spray equipment has been specifically developed to meter, mix and apply the product to offer fast, simple and effective sealing, even on complex detailing. Outputs can reach in excess of 2,000m2 per day meaning less time spent on site. The ELIMINATOR® waterproofing system’s fast cure means that other trades can access 1 hour after application, assisting contract progression. Applied in two separate colour-coded coats aids on-site quality assurance, ensuring a seamless and protective waterproof barrier is achieved. Application can be commenced in a range of climates, ELIMINATOR® cures rapidly in high humidity or low temperatures, allowing global application all year round.
