DURAfill as a joint filler material has better performance record than conventional materials

Joint filler material. An expansion joint is a deliberate separation designed to relieve stress on building materials. Stress in a building structure is usually caused by thermal expansion and contraction due to temperature changes or sway caused by wind or due to seismic events. Expansion joint systems are used to bridge the gap and restore building assembly functions while accommodating expected movements. Such gaps are usually provided between sections of buildings, bridges, sidewalks, railway tracks, piping systems, ships, and other structures. The expansion joint gap depends on the type of slab, like floating slab floor, vehicle pavement, sidewalk, or monolithic slab foundation. It is also influenced by the slab dimensions, type of concrete, and the reinforcing materials being used.

Joint filler materialHowever, this gap cannot be kept open and has to be filled up to restore the waterproofing, fire proofing, sound proofing, air barrier, roof membrane, trafficable surface and other functions of the building elements it bisects. For this purpose, expansion joint fillers are used. An ideal expansion joint filler should have good recovery property after the compression. That is the reason why DURAfill manufactured and supplied by Supreme Industries finds wide acceptance in construction industry which has excellent recovery property after compression.

In fact DURAfill as a joint filler material has better performance features when compared to conventional materials. Unlike in the case of conventional bitumen based fillers, DURAfill is a polymer based non-staining, non-impregnated and non-bleeding and also it does not disintegrate. As it has closed-cell structure, there will be negligible water/moisture absorption. It has excellent chemical resistance qualities and therefore, it is unaffected by alkalis, alcohols, detergents, petrochemical products and most of the mild acids.

Therefore, DURAfill is widely used in structural expansion joint in buildings. It is also used in isolation joints between adjacent constructions, e.g. buildings, around manholes, drains and other insets in concrete etc.
