Traffic deck coatings are installed to parking decks and ramps to protect the steel members from corrosion due to moisture entering through the concrete. Traffic deck coatings reduce water infiltration by providing a waterproof barrier; reduce freeze/thaw damage to the concrete and protect areas below from any water damage. Coatings also protect the concrete from salts and other chloride intrusion further protecting steel or rebar. Traffic deck coatings increase the life-expectancy of the concrete and reinforcing steel.
Pedestrian traffic areas: such as sidewalks, are also coated for safety by providing a non-skid surface for employees, customers and the general public. Slips and falls are historically the highest percentage of workplace caused injuries.
