ELIMINATOR® bridge deck waterproofing solution

Extending the life of road and railway bridges

Bridges are vulnerable, subject to attack by water, chloride and frost, leading to deterioration and issues with structural integrity. The installation of an effective waterproofing membrane is therefore an essential part of any bridge building or refurbishment programme. The ELIMINATOR® waterproofing system is a pioneering cold, spray-applied solution that can outlast the life of the structure - reducing future maintenance and associated costs and traffic disruptions.

Overview
Overview

Achieve long-term performance 

The ELIMINATOR® bridge deck waterproofing membrane has an unparalleled track record protecting thousands of concrete and steel bridges throughout the world. Based on unique ESSELAC® advanced resin technology, the system creates composite action between the deck, waterproof membrane, substrate and asphalt, ensuring that the membrane is fully bonded both downwards to the deck and upwards to the surfacing. The extremely high bond enables the membrane to stand up to punishing climate conditions and heavy traffic loads. 

Accelerating waterproofing application

The ELIMINATOR® bridge waterproof membrane offers fast, simple and effective application. Unlike alternative solutions that are sensitive to moisture, the ELIMINATOR® membrane can be applied virtually year round, in any climate, preventing costly weather delays. It cures in just an hour, even in high humidity or low temperatures. In addition, the system features on-the-spot QA capabilities, such as the two-colour application system, that make it easy to quickly verify that the membrane is applied properly.
