Uses

  • Ideal as a gap filler and bond breaker for floor and wall expansion joints, filling systems for roads, motorways, bridges, walls and automotive applications
  • Can be used as a backup filler for most liquid sealants
  • Primary functions are to stop contaminants, such as soil, entering into expansion slots and joints
  • In joints where polystyrene or bitumen impregnated fillers have been used, Abelflex Rigid is ideal as a bond breaker. This is often necessary because of the sealant incompatibility with these forms of fillers
