THIN SAND FILLED RESIN OVERLAYS
The use of thin sand filled resinous overlays to prevent the penetration of water and deicing salts into portland cement concrete (PCC) bridge and overpass decks has been investigated. Sealing of PCC surfaces and the provision of a new durable skid resistant surface cannot be attained with conventional PCC or asphalt materials. An overlay composed of multiple layers of synthetic thermosetting resins and clean, dry, round grain silica sand which reduces the penetration of water by over 94 percent has been developed.
