Foam expansion joint filler offers choice

For the last century, concrete installers have been using asphalt-impregnated fiberboard as expansion joint filler. Today, installers have a new choice in Nomaflex, a closed-cell polypropylene foam expansion joint filler and form, which has been evaluated by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials. With positive industry feedback from the product’s initial introduction in select sizes last year, Nomaco is now introducing a full product line of 30 plank sizes in thicknesses ranging from ½ inch to 1 inch and widths from 3 ½ inches to 8 inches that are now available in sheet form. Nomaflex extends the service life of concrete by acting as filler for full-depth expansion joints in sidewalks, streets, driveways, highways, airport runways and other applications. North Carolina- based Nomaco developed the product to solve common problems for installers, including concrete joint sealant failure, difficult installation, product breakage and ongoing joint maintenance challenges. ?
