USE OF PLASTICS IN DAMP-PROOFING RAILWAY BRIDGES

Plastics are used in bridge-building as joint sealing materials, webs and coating materials. In principle, polysulphide rubber base materials have proved useful for sealing expansion joints. Flexible suspension PVC webs have successfully been installed against soil moisture and infiltration water for about 20 years. In solid and steel sub-bases with ballast bed reactant-type resin base coatings serve both as sealing and protection against corrosion, and also as protective layer. Laboratory tests were made and experimental structures were coated.
