Abstract:bridge, decks, ramps and roadways utilizing portland cement B concrete [PCC] that need protection from natural environmental conditions such as wet/dry cycles, freeze-thaw, chlorides from soil [ 11, water or deicing salts, erosion, and abrasion f?omvehicular traffic can be protected with micro-thin epoxy polymer concrete overlays. This paper presents a brief review of three bridge deck overlays in the United States that comply with AASHTO-AGC-ARTBA Task Force 34, Chapter 4, Epoxy Polymer Concrete Overlays . It provides information when to use Epoxy Polymer Concrete [EPC] Overlays, how to place the overlay, equipment options, surface profile selection, physical properties of the EPC and commentary on each project.
