DECK-O-FOAM®
EXPANSION JOINT FILLER

DESCRIPTION
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, economical, 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 an economical 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.

  • Economical alternative to expansion joints.
  • Controls amount of sealant needed and acts as a bond-breaker.
  • Eliminates costly sawing and routing.

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.
