DURAboardHD100 – A non-bituminous joint filler board

DURAboardHD100 – A non-bituminous joint filler board.  Non-bituminous joint filler boards are now-a-days preferred for expansion joint filling which is a deliberate separation designed to relieve stress on building materials. It is often found that bitumen board absorbs water and ooze bitumen thereby staining the structure. Also bitumen board hardly recovers once compressed thus defeating the very purpose of its application.

DURAboardHD100 – A non-bituminous joint filler boardThough there are variety of non-bituminous joint filler board materials available in the market like cork based board, metal and rubber sheets, polymer based joint filler board is becoming popular because of its inherent advantages over traditional materials. Most importantly they are environment friendly as they are produced without usage of CFC/HCFC gases, which are considered harmful to the planet. An advantage of polymer based expansion joint filler is that it is a resilient material offering recovery qualities of over 95%. Bitumen based boards and cork sheets disintegrate over a period of time which is not the case with polymer based boards.

DURAboardHD100 is a polymer based bitumen free expansion joint filler board manufactured by Supreme Industries which is found to be more effective than traditional filler boards. It has high compression-recovery ratio of 96%, therefore it’s suitable for application at places which require readily compressible joint filler boards. Unlike the bituminous filler board it is very easy to handle and install. Another advantage of DURAboard100 vis-à-vis bituminous filler board is that it is non-staining.

As it is a cross linked closed cell polymer there will be low water absorption thus non-deteriorating and durable. It is resilient and does not distort under low load transfer from wet concrete. Further, unlike the bituminous filler board it is very easy to handle and install. Also it accepts temperature cycle with minimal load transfer. As it is bitumen free it can be cut in any size with a normal knife.

DURAboardHD100 finds wide application in construction industry and is used in bridges, decks, abutments and pier hinge joints, filler board in expansion joints in concrete flooring, water retaining and water excluding structures, concrete roads, basements, flyovers, and subways and various other applications.
