FIBRE EXPANSION JOINT
Resilient and economical multi-function
SEALTIGHT FIBRE Expansion Joint is a unique,
multi-purpose, easy-to-use, versatile, resilient and economical
expansion-contraction joint filler applicable for small, medium or large scale
SEALTIGHT FIBRE Expansion Joint is composed of cellular fibers securely
bonded together and uniformly saturated with asphalt to assure longevity.
Wherever a cost-effective joint filler is required, SEALTIGHT FIBRE Expansion
Joint meets the need.
Manufactured and marketed by W.R. Meadows since the early 1930's, SEALTIGHT
FIBRE Expansion Joint is backed by over 60 years of proven application
Fibre Expansion Joint is versatile, resilient, flexible and non-extruding. When
compressed to half of its original thickness, it will recover to a minimum of
70% of its original thickness. SEALTIGHT FIBRE will not deform, twist or break
with normal on-the-job handling. The purchase and installation of Fibre
Expansion Joint may represent a small segment of a project's total cost.
However, top-quality SEALTIGHT Fibre Expansion Joint can contribute to both the
final cost efficiency and functional success in far greater proportion than its
original cost. Breakage, waste and functional failure resulting from the use of
inferior, foreign fiber materials can cost you time, dollars and result in a
substandard finished job, thereby, generating costly callbacks and re-work
SEALTIGHT FIBRE Expansion Joint is ideal for use on highways, streets,
airport runways, sidewalks, driveways, flatwork and scores of commercial and
industrial applications subject to pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Install
1/2" (12.7mm) below the concrete surface and seal with SEALTIGHT #164,
HI-SPEC or Cold Applied SOF-SEAL for maximum protection from water infiltration,
weathering and to assure proper function. Refer to Catalog Nos. 220, 221 and
