Expansion joints sealers are necessary for concrete flooring and walls to allow the concrete to expand without cracking in your commercial property as well as prevent elements like water to infiltrate into the concrete causing erosion or damages. Both sealers and fillers should only be installed after the slab has had a chance to shrink as much as possible. Fillers are only effective if installed after the concrete has gone through most of its shrinkage, although that can take a year or more. Fillers and sealers should be checked at the end of the first year of service and repaired or replaced as needed. It is important to take into consideration that using the correct top-quality sealant allows the concrete to bond and work the best for a long-lasting result.
Effective sealant materials must bond to the concrete, be impermeable, and be able to handle the expansion and contraction shifting.
