DECK-O-FOAM® Expansion Joint Filler

DECK-O-FOAM expansion joint filler is a flexible, lightweight, non-staining, polyethylene, closed-cell expansion joint filler. It is a chemical-resistant, ultraviolet stable, non-absorbent, low density, cost-effective, compressible foam that offers an extended service life in both interior and exterior applications.

DECK-O-FOAM is supplied with a convenient, pre-scored removable strip to provide a uniform sealing reservoir in the joint. It also serves as a sealant bond-breaker and provides a cost-effective alternative as an expansion joint in all concrete paving projects. It is compatible with all currently available cold-applied sealants.

USES
DECK-O-FOAM is ideal for use as an expansion, contraction, and/or isolation joint in swimming pool decks, curb and gutter work, floor slabs, pavement patch repair, sidewalks, driveways, plazas, parking decks, highways, and airport runways.

FEATURES/BENEFITS

  • Pre-scored strip is easily removed.
  • Economical alternative to expansion joints.
  • Controls amount of sealant needed and acts as a bond breaker.
  • Eliminates costly sawing and routing.
  • Flexible, lightweight, and can be formed around curved objects.

TECHNICAL DATA

TEST METHOD TYPICAL VALUE
Density ASTM D 1622 2.0 lb./ft.3 (32.04 kg/m3)
Compression
10% Deflection ASTM D 3575 10 psi (69 KPa) max.
80% Deflection ASTM D 3575 125 psi (862.49 KPa) max.
Tensile Strength ASTM D 3575 55 psi (379.50 KPa)
Water Absorption ASTM D 3575 0.5% vol. max.
Temperature Stability N/A -40º F to 160º F (-40º C to 71º C)

These physical properties are typical, but should not be used in specifying material due to differences that could result from variations in testing methods.

APPLICATION
Attach DECK-O-FOAM securely to the existing concrete slab, coping, or form with tape or mechanical fasteners prior to pouring the next slab. Make sure that DECK-O-FOAM is level with the desired slab surfaces before finishing. If specifications require the use of a cold-applied sealant, remove the pre-scored strip and apply the sealant following the manufacturer’s instructions.
