Product Description

APPLICATION
FIBRE EXPANSION JOINT is positioned against the forms, at interrupting objects or columns, and against abutting structures prior to the placement of concrete. FIBRE EXPANSION JOINT should be installed 1/2″ (12.7 mm) below the concrete surface to accept the joint sealant. Before sealing, slide SNAP-CAP® from W. R. MEADOWS over the top of the expansion joint. Place the concrete and screed to finish grade, as usual. When concrete is cured, insert a screwdriver through the top of SNAP-CAP, pull free and discard. For maximum protection from water infiltration and weathering, and to assure proper function, seal the joint with DECK-O-SEAL®, POURTHANE® NS, or POURTHANE SL from W. R. MEADOWS. SOF-SEAL® or any hot-applied sealant, such as HI-SPEC®, can also be used to protect the joint; however, SNAP-CAP is not necessary in this type of application. Simply pour the product over FIBRE EXPANSION JOINT.
