Concrete Expansion Joint Sealant
What is Concrete Expansion Joint Sealant?
In building construction, an expansion joint is a mid-structure separation of the various elements that combine to make the whole structure. Each element is separated by expansion joints in order to safely allow independent expansion and contraction of construction materials as well as absorbing any vibrations.
With Perth’s extremely variable temperatures our buildings, roads and concrete slabs often expand and contract due to warming and cooling. Without the application of expansion joints, these structures would inevitably crack under temperature stress.

When are expansion joints used?
Expansion joints are designed to allow for movement in a structure. The most common places you will see expansion joints are:
Without an expansion joint in place, there won’t be enough space for the tiles to expand with fluctuating temperatures and the tiles will pop up.
As concrete expands and shrinks with changes in temperatures, expansion joints help account for the potential changes.
Expansion joints in brickwork accommodate to movement and help avoid cracks that could form.
