FIBRE EXPANSION JOINT
 

NO. 320-F

FIBRE EXPANSION JOINT

Multi-Purpose, Expansion - Contraction Joint Filler

Technical Description
SEALTIGHT FIBRE Expansion Joint is composed of cellular fibers securely bonded together and uniformly saturated with asphalt to assure longevity. Wherever a cost-effective joint filler is required, SEALTIGHT FIBRE Expansion Joint meets the need.

Manufactured and marketed by W.R. MEADOWS since the early 1930's, SEALTIGHT FIBRE Expansion Joint is backed by over 60 years of proven application experience.

Fibre Expansion Joint is versatile, resilient, flexible and non-extruding. When compressed to half of its original thickness, it will recover to a minimum of 70% of its original thickness. SEALTIGHT FIBRE will not deform, twist or break with normal on-the-job handling. Breakage, waste and functional failure resulting from the use of inferior, foreign fiber materials can cost you time and dollars and can result in a substandard finished job... thereby, generating costly callbacks and rework expenses. However, the purchase and installation of Fibre Expansion Joint (a small segment of the total project's cost) contributes to both the final cost efficiency and functional success, far greater in proportion than its original cost.

Uses
SEALTIGHT FIBRE Expansion Joint is ideal for use on highways, streets, airport runways, sidewalks, driveways, flatwork and scores of commercial and industrial applications subject to pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Install 1/2" (12.7mm) below the concrete surface and seal with SEALTIGHT #164, HI-SPEC or Cold Applied SOF-SEAL for maximum protection from water infiltration, weathering and to assure proper function. (Refer to Catalog Nos. 220, 221 and 224).
