Many bridges, viaducts and tunnels are built with prefabricated structures. This makes waterproofing often a complex matter. Due to thermal deformation –different temperatures, the structures might deform. However, there is another challenge that requires a professional approach in order to make road, bridges, viaducts and tunnels waterproof. Since these structures become they slippery in winter, de-icing salt is often sprinkled in those places. Road salt causes a short-term so-called “thermo shock”. This effect affects the concrete surface of structures. Hyperdesmo®’s water-retaining membrane technology offers the right protection.
The highly elastic polyurethane membranes from Hyperdesmo® often offer an excellent solution for applying a waterproof coating to various constructions. The great advantage of our product is the very fast curing reaction. The membrane is quickly cured and the surface can be walked on in a very short time period. This makes it possible to apply controlled layer thicknesses, on both horizontal and vertical surfaces. After applying, they become completely waterproof.
Waterproofing the surface of road constructions, bridges, viaducts and tunnels with Hyperdesmo® offers a sustainable and environmentally friendly solution. Hyperdesmo® is a polyurethane that cures with the moisture in the atmosphere. It produces a highly elastic membrane with a strong adhesion on many surfaces. Hyperdesmo® has an excellent resistance to: mechanical, chemical and thermal stress. It is also resistant to UV radiation and offers resistance to natural elements. The result is a completely waterproof road, bridge, viaduct or tunnel with a surface that is less sensitive to cracks and damage. The surface is waterproof and very strong after treatment.
