Abstract
The primary objective of this study was to assess the effectiveness and performance of selected products for sealing cracks in concrete bridge decks. The project was a follow up study of an earlier investigation to expand the selection of crack sealers for use in the field. A total of nine crack sealants were tested in this study under laboratory conditions that simulated the exposure to deicing salts and freeze?thaw cycles encountered in practice. Five of the products had been tested earlier under the same laboratory conditions but for a limited range of crack widths. Four additional products were also included in this study. Based on the test results, the performance of the sealants was evaluated and ranked, and recommendations for their use in the field are provided.
