Membrane Waterproofing: Hot Rubber.

A mixture of refined asphalts, synthetic rubber and mineral stabilizers that are heated until malleable, this material is laid down after deck repairs to help waterproof new reconstructed areas of the deck. Sometimes protection board may be added to larger areas prior to paving.

Process

After the deck repair is completed, the rubber material is heated and mixed on site. The material is then poured on the area of construction to match what’s already covered by the existing membrane.

Benefits

  • Protects bridge deck from moisture intrusion
  • Cost-effective treatment
  • Usually matches existing membrane layer

Consider Membrane Waterproofing: Hot Rubber when

you need to waterproof a newly reconstructed area of a bridge deck that uses a hot rubber membrane throughout the rest of the deck.
