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.
