Expansion Joint Systems
Polyset is a leader in the design and manufacture of expansion joint systems for the bridge construction industry.
Expansion joints are imperative to the life-cycle of a bridge; the consequence of failing joints as a result of poor quality or improper installation will severely compromise a bridge’s structural integrity. Our Ply-Krete® joint systems are designed to allow for continuous traffic while accommodating movement, shrinkage and temperature variations on both the concrete and steel structure elements of a bridge. These systems are designed to preserve and protect concrete decks and substructures by preventing water absorption and minimizing chloride intrusion in the most abusive environments.
Ply-Krete® joint systems consist of a high strength, moisture insensitive, elastomeric concrete nosing material, and Ply-Seal®, a waterproof joint seal. Polyset’s joint systems are designed to be easier, faster, and less expensive to install than our competitors joint systems. In addition to bridges, Ply-Krete® joint systems are ideal for parking decks, stadiums, and airports.
Ply-Seal® FG is a flexible joint seal that is used to form and seal joints between concrete pours.
We are excited to announce our new Ply-Krete® TM Bridge Joint System! Designed to be a time management joint system, it allows the waterproof joint seal placement with the nosing material.
Come visit Tom, Todd, and Matt in Denver at The Precast Show 2018 from February 22-24th! This is the largest precast-specific show in North America, and we will be in booth #520 discussing our expansion joint systems and protective coatings solutions.
