Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 39-11. Performance of Thin Polymer Overlays for Bridge Decks

<strong><p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; LINE-HEIGHT: 150%" align="left"><span style="COLOR: black"><font size="3"><font face="Times New Roman">Thin polymer overlays, which consist of a polymer binder, e.g., epoxies, polyesters or methacrylates, and aggregates are constructed with a thickness of no more than 1.0 in. They have the advantages of (1) adding very little dead load; (2) very fast cure times; (3) shallow depths that <span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span>eliminate need for raising approach slabs; (4) transition from overlaid lane to non-overlaid lane during construction; (5) low permeability, (6) long-lasting wearing surface; and (7) frictional resistance. Many thin polymer overlays have been installed and it is critically important to summarize their performance in one document. <o:p></o:p></font></font></span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; LINE-HEIGHT: 150%" align="left"><span style="COLOR: black"><o:p><font face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font></o:p></span></p></strong>
