The fact that nearly 70,000 bridges in America (one out of every nine) is considered structurally deficient is one of the biggest infrastructure challenges our nation is facing. Concrete bridge deck deterioration is one of the most common bridge maintenance problems affecting the service life of bridges. One cause of the deterioration is the penetration of moisture and chlorides into the concrete with subsequent corrosion of the steel reinforcement.
To prevent this problem, Dek-Shield LLC has engineered a waterproofing concrete protection system named the Dri-Span System. It is a perfect remedy for the problem at hand. The use of the Dri-Span System is a solution to stop deterioration by preventing moisture and chlorides from reaching the concrete. This is achieved by waterproofing the concrete deck with an impenetrable barrier.
