Parkway Foam: Your Expert Construction Foam Supplier

Expansion joints are primarily designed to facilitate the movement in structures caused by temperature induced expansion and contraction. They also help extend the life of concrete structures by providing some “give” in the movement of the structure. Expansion joints can be used in parking garages, overpasses, roadways, sidewalks, piping structures and railway tracks.
There are many types of expansion joints. This guide will help you understand the differences, so you can make an informed decision for your next construction project.

Closed Cell Polyethylene Joint Filler Board is a semi-rigid, U.V. resistant, high performance closed cell polyethylene foam joint filler in sheet form. It is suitable for use as an expansion joint filler in concrete, brick, blockwork and isolation joints, where a readily compressible low load transfer joint filler is required.
It is non-tainting and therefore suitable for use in potable water retaining and water excluding structures.

Foam Construction Application

Closed Cell Polyethylene Joint Filler Board is a compressible joint filler in sheet form, used to form and fill expansion joints.

  In Concrete

Joint Filler Board can be placed against formwork on the concreting side prior to placing the first section of concrete and is left in place on removal of the formwork. The subsequent pour is then cast directly against the JOINT FILLER BOARD. The board is then cut back later to form the sealing slot.

  In Blockwork and Brick

Joint Filler Board should be installed, whilst laying brick or blockwork, in such a way that a sealing slot, of the required dimensions, is formed.
