Waterproofing and protection of rail infrastructure

Triflex waterproofing, surfacing and protection systems can deliver ultra-rapid protection to transportation infrastructure. Our systems are tough and resilient with applications from trafficable ramps, walkways and platforms to flooring, car park surfaces and roofs. The highly versatile systems are suitable for newly built or refurbishment projects for the long-lasting, certified and warrantied waterproofing, surfacing and protection of your assets.

Minimise disruption and save time

Triflex systems utilise PMMA resin technology to deliver rainproof protection in 30 minutes. The solvent and isocyanate free systems cure quickly even at low temperatures providing year-round works. With single coat application, the self-terminating cold applied liquid systems are installed quickly and efficiently, minimising disruption to your facilities and services.

Tested for compatibility on over 7,000 substrates, they provide a cost effective and sustainable option to overlay existing surfaces including asphalt, concrete and nearly all types of waterproofing membranes.

Rail infrastructure roofs protected

Triflex PMMA waterproofing systems are designed for flat roofs. The fully reinforced and seamless solutions are versatile and can be used with cold roofs, warm roofs, inverted and buried roofs whether they are a blue roof, green roof, plaza, podium type or trafficked roofs.

The systems are hydrolysis resistant, ensuring ponding water poses no threat. Triflex PMMA waterproofing systems are BBA certified and tested to the highest standards. See the full range of flat roof systems here.

From wayfinding for vehicles and pedestrians to signage, we provide highly visible marking solutions to improve safety and passenger confidence. 

Our totally cold applied marking systems can withstand high mechanical loads, and are available in anti-slip options with multiple colourways. Glow in the dark, luminescent markings are available too for increased safety.

With drying times of between 20-30 minutes, even down to 0°C, they are ideal for the demarcation of busy areas, ensuring minimal disruption.
