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.
