POLYMER-CONCRETE BRIDGE-DECK OVERLAYS

This report summarizes the results of a survey of polymer-concrete bridge-deck installations (test patch and overlay) in New York, and canvassing of the experience of other states with these overlays. In New York, two types of polymer overlay materials have been used -- thin epoxies and a thicker polyester -- with one thin epoxy in New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) Region 1, two polyesters in Region 10, and two thin epoxies in Region 11. In inspections during the summer of 1991, condition and performance of most of these overlays was found to be satisfactory, but the installations were determined to be best suited only to urban areas.
