Expansion Joint Fillers
Expansion joint fillers are materials that are used to fill the gaps or spaces created between two adjoining structures or surfaces, such as concrete slabs, to allow for expansion and contraction caused by temperature changes, humidity, or structural movement. These gaps or spaces are known as expansion joints.
Expansion joint fillers serve multiple purposes, including preventing debris, dirt, and water from entering the gaps or spaces, reducing noise and vibration caused by traffic or foot traffic, and protecting the edges of the structures or surfaces.
Expansion joint fillers are available in various materials, including silicone, polyurethane, butyl, asphalt, and epoxy. The choice of material depends on the specific requirements of the project, such as the location, the type of structure or surface, the expected movement, and the surrounding environment.
It is essential to select the appropriate expansion joint filler to ensure its effectiveness in preventing damage and ensuring the longevity of the structure or surface.
