Soy-based PoreShield™ approved for use on Iowa bridge decks

PoreShield™, the new concrete durability enhancer technology, can now be used on concrete bridge decks in Iowa. The Iowa Department of Transportation (Iowa DOT) recently approved SoySeal Ultra, which is powered by PoreShield technology, to protect concrete bridge decks from premature damage.

“We’re thrilled to see the doors open for this new concrete protection product with the recent approval of a concrete durability enhancer in Iowa,” said PoreShield Technical Consultant Paul Imbrock, who helped develop PoreShield. “It is exciting to know that contractors now have the opportunity to use a long-lasting, environmentally friendly solution that protects the concrete and enhances the durability of bridges.”

With the recent Iowa DOT approval, contractors now have a proven solution to protect bridge decks across Iowa at a lower cost investment and longer service life (five-to-nine times longer).
