Why Use Expansion Joints?
Ignoring expansion joints in pavement construction can lead to problems. As you are aware, concrete expands and contracts with temperature and moisture changes. Rising temperatures or an increase in concrete moisture content, results in expansion. When temperatures drop, concrete contracts. SealTight Concrete Expansion Joints by W.R. Meadows accommodate movement at predetermined locations preventing the development of stresses that results in cracked concrete.
Joint type and spacing will vary with each project according to the type of structure, climatic conditions, and anticipated stresses in the concrete. The basics: provide ample room for the concrete to expand and contract without creating damaging stresses and resultant cracking.
Fibre Expansion Joints | SealTight | W.R. Meadows
Composed of cellular fibers securely bonded together and uniformly saturated with asphalt to assure longevity. When compressed to half of its original thickness, Fibre Expansion Joints will recover to a minimum of 70% of its original thickness.
Fibre Lite | SealTight| SealTight | W.R. Meadows
Light duty forming material and expansion joint is ideal for forming walkways, patios, pool aprons and driveways. Compatible with sealants including polymerized sealants.
Asphalt Expansion Joint | SealTight | W.R. Meadows
Composed of a blend of asphalts, vegetable fibers, and mineral fillers formed under heat and pressure between two asphalt-saturated linters. Notably, Asphalt Expansion lints are waterproof, permanent, flexible and self-sealing.
Cermar Flexible Foam Expansion Joint Filler | SealTight | W.R. Meadows
Composed of a unique blend of isomeric polymers in a very small, closed cell structure. Grey in color, this lightweight, flexible and resilient material offers recovery qualities over 99%. The mini closed-cell structure is virtually non-absorbent. It can be wrapped or formed around curved or circular surfaces.
Deck-O-Foam | SealTight | W.R. Meadows
This expansion joint filler is a flexible, lightweight, non-staining, polyethylene, closed-cell expansion joint filler. Notably chemical-resistant, ultraviolet stable, non-absorbent, low density, cost-effective, compressed foam offers an extended service life in interior and exterior applications. Ideal for decorative concrete installations.
Cork Expansion Joints | SealTight | W.R. Meadows
Produced from clean, selected, granulated cork that is bonded with synthetic resin. Highly resilient and will compress without extrusion. Recovers to 95% of its original thickness after 50% compression.
Sponge Rubber Expansion Joints | SealTight | W.R. Meadows
Produced to a uniform thickness and density from gray-colored, top-quality, blown sponge rubber. Easily compressed, Sponge Rubber Expansion Joints easily compress and recover 95% or more of the original thickness and at a density of not less than 30 pounds per cubic foot.
Self-Expanding Cork Expansion Joints | SealTight | W.R. Meadows
Formed and compressed under heat and pressure to permit expansion up to 140% of original thickness after installation, permitting the filler to compensate for concrete shrinkage. The normal humid conditions after installation activate the self-expanding properties of cork. Self-Expanding Cork Expansion Joints may be cut at the job site to exact sizes and is ideal for water-retaining structures.

What is the CSI (Construction Specifications Institute) Masterformat??
- The CSI MasterFormat is a coding system for document organization for construction related documents including construction design specifications, contracts, construction documents and other materials.
- The CSI uses specific numbers and titles that make up a universal indexing system.
- MasterFormat is also a publication created and maintained by the Construction Specification Institute (CSI) and Construction Specifications Canada (CSC). Notably, the CSI is widely used in the construction and operation of buildings and systems in many industries and projects, from healthcare and public infrastructure to educational structures and commercial. residential construction.
- Advantages of Using CSI’s MasterFormat:
- Improved communication between project groups, by for example, the design and construction teams. CSI allows all team members to refer to specific sections of any document using the universal coding system. This facilitates coordination and communication between project owners, architects, contractors, and suppliers, minimizing the time spent organizing documents.
For industries with complex operations, such as health care, MasterFormat helps communicate and organize critical operational information among designers, builders, operations managers, and facility owners. In addition, as these and many other industries are increasingly using building information modeling, or BIM, MasterFormat can be used by modeling software to enhance data interoperability and improve BIM adoption.
