The American Concrete Institute (ACI) issued a new specification for methyl methacrylate slurry (MMS) polymer overlays for parking-garage and bridge decks.
The specification--548.10-10: Specification for Type MMS (Methyl Methacrylate Slurry) Polymer Overlays for Bridge and Parking Garage Decks—covers materials and procedures for polymer overlays for new construction and for repair and rehabilitation of bridge and parking garage decks.
Methyl methacrylate slurry (MMS) polymer overlays incorporate a methyl methacrylate-based primer, binder, and topcoat, with selected filler and aggregate to produce a flexible, skid-resistant, and water-resistant overlay. The specification includes requirements for chemical components, aggregates, storage and handling, surface preparation, surface profile, mixing, placement, finishing, quality control, and quality assurance. The specification is available in hard copy or PDF format.
