Solutions for Bridges, Rail & Roads
Bridging the gap for durable concrete constructions
railroad tracks require
high performanceconcreteadmixtures that provide excellent long-term
resistance to cracking,
steel corrosion from the onset.
Increasing demands for faster construction and an extended service life creates challenges for designers and engineers as structures are exposed to traffic loads, extreme weather conditions and attack from environmental elements such as

crack rehabilitation, products from Master Builders Solutions are formulated to re-establish the bridge's
structural integrity and
aesthetics. By understanding the primary cause of the damage, we work with our customers to quickly restore the bridge’s full
load-bearingcapacity, extending the service life and strength of the concrete and its architectural elements, for a quick return to service.
By applying Master Builders Solutions
protective coatings and superficial treatments, the deterioration of concrete decks from traffic erosion, water ingression, salts and
freeze-thaw cycles can be resisted. These include
high-performance water repellents and thin polymer overlays that chemically bond with the concrete to create an invisible defence shield.
Grouting solutions that challenge movement
Master Builders Solutions'
polymer-basedgrouting solutions are designed for their ease of application,
durability and high performance properties. Developed for segmental bridges and rail lines, these high-strength liquid
grouting products deliver
structural stabilization and
precision alignment of parts.
Grouts that are formulated for injection and concrete bonding, anchoring and the protection of steel tendons from corrosion, provide total load bearing support for each component or segment. Highly durable, they are able to withstand extreme conditions and temperatures that include freeze-thaw cycles and marine environments.
