MEL-DEK from W. R. MEADOWS offers a waterproofing system designed specifically for tough waterproofing jobs where heavy traffic will take place. MEL-DEK’s 65 mils thick roll-type polymeric waterproofing membrane, combined with a durable polypropylene woven carrier fabric designed not to shrink, provides excellent waterproofing for bridges and parking decks where asphalt wearing course will be overlaid.
MEL-DEK is versatile and can be used for repair, maintenance, or new construction applications. The reliable materials MEL-DEK encompasses requires no protection and can endure hot asphalt overlays. MEL-DEK is easy to install with an ¾” overlapping rubberized asphalt seam ensuring uniform coverage. Asphalt concrete should be applied as soon as possible over a minimum 2” compacted overlay once MEL-DEK is in place.
A detailed installation guide is available with specific instructions including recommended tools to use, surface preparation, membrane installation and more. Past MEL-DEK projects can be viewed at our Project Profile page.
