One of our most popular waterproofing membranes is MEL-DEK. This product has been used for decades to waterproof bridges and parking decks and meets ASTM D 6153, Type III. MEL-DEK is a roll-type waterproofing membrane that is 65 mils thick, composed of a nominally polymeric waterproofing membrane on a shrink-resistant, heavy-duty, polypropylene woven carrier fabric. The two components are laminated together under strictly controlled production procedures. MEL-DEK waterproofing system provides an excellent waterproofing membrane for bridges, parking decks, or other vehicular traffic structures to be overlaid with an asphalt concrete wearing course. MEL-DEK is ideal for repair, maintenance, or new construction applications.
To assist our customers with the installation of MEL-DEK, we have created an application guidelines document. This document can be accessed from the MEL-DEK page of our website, or visit https://www.wrmeadows.com/installation-guidelines/mel-dek-bridge/. The document features recommend tools, deck preparation, membrane application, and more. It’s a great document to learn more about a proper installation of the membrane. And as methods change, this page will be updated with the most recent information. It’s a great page to bookmark if you need to refer to the installation guidelines in the future.
The document is available in HTML and PDF versions. And if you need more information on MEL-DEK, please email [email protected]
