POLYFLEX BRIDGE SYSTEM

Wasser’s innovative Polyflex Bridge Deck System, has been specifically engineered to provide lasting protection to concrete and steel bridge decks. In its NCHRP Synthesis 425 report, the National Cooperative Highway Research Program states that: “… concrete bridge deterioration is one of the most extensive bridge maintenance problems affecting the service of bridges. One cause is the penetration of moisture and chlorides into the concrete with subsequent corrosion of the steel reinforcement.” The annual direct cost of corrosion to highway bridges has been estimated to be greater than $8 billion.

The defining characteristics of the Polyflex Bridge Deck System are derived from the tenacious bond of the Polyurea membrane providing both waterproofing as well as corrosion protection to the concrete bridge deck.

Wasser Polyflex 111 PU Primer
Polyflex 111 PU Primer is a two-component, 100% solids, polyurethane primer used in conjunction with the Polyflex line of high performance waterproofing membranes. It can be used as an elastomeric primer for concrete as well as steel.

Wasser Polyflex 311 Membrane
Polyflex 311 is a high performance polyurea coating for steel, concrete and geotextile liners. Polyflex 311 is designed with an extended gel time for better leveling and high abrasion resistance for demanding industrial applications. Polyflex 311 impermeable membrane has been designed for use as part of a comprehensive Bridge Deck waterproofing system. Since it provides for less shrinkage and improved elongation it is an ideal choice for secondary containment.


Wasser Polyflex 411 ShearCoat
Polyflex 411 is a high performance, slow setting polyurea waterproofing membrane. The slower gel time allows aggregate to be broadcast into the membrane before initial set. Polyflex 411 ShearCoat is part of a comprehensive bridge deck waterproofing system typically used on heavy highway projects. It can also be used for general industrial applications where abrasion resistance and waterproofing is needed.


Wasser Polyflex 511 TackCoat
Polyflex 511 TackCoat is a hot-applied, asphalt-based membrane specifically formulated with adhesive qualities to bond Polyflex polyureas to an asphalt wear coarse. Polyflex 511 TackCoat is part of a comprehensive bridge deck waterproofing system typically used on heavy highway projects. Unique properties allow for heavy traffic loading and protection from the effects of constant freeze/thaw conditions.
