Project Description

Walking Bridge

The bridge deck was severely deteriorated and deemed almost beyond repair.

The repair method selected is extremely cost efficient.
It mostly consists of:
- Clearing away the delaminated concrete
- Applying a thin bond coat of Polyforce Plus
- Patching with regular concrete while the bond layer is still wet
- Finishing the surface with a thin coat of Polyforce Plus for a protective long lasting finish

The repair was done very quickly with minimal prep work or effort

Technical Details

Facts

In accordance with third-party testing, the repaired surfaces are rated to the following:

  • 25 years of useful life
  • 0% water permeation
  • Polyforce Plus is rated to expand and contract with concrete
  • The entire surface and volume of the slab is "monolithic"
  • Compressive strength of 85 MPa
  • Adhesive strength of 1.85 MPa (original concrete has only 1.2 MPa of a tensile strength, so the bond is stronger than the concrete itself)
  • Repair is 60% cost of a traditional repair
