FIBRE EXPANSION JOINT
Multi-Purpose, Expansion-Contraction Joint Filler
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, FIBRE EXPANSION JOINT meets the need. Manufactured and marketed by W. R. MEADOWS since the early 1930s, FIBRE EXPANSION JOINT is backed by over 70 years of proven application experience. 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. FIBRE EXPANSION JOINT will not deform, twist or break with normal on-the-job handling. Breakage, waste and functional failure resulting from the use of inferior, foreign fiber materials can cost you time, dollars and can result in a substandard finished job, generating costly callbacks and rework expenses. However, the purchase and installation of FIBRE EXPANSION JOINT (a small segment of the total project’s cost) contributes to both the final cost efficiency and functional success, far greater in proportion than its original cost.
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.

FIBRE EXPANSION JOINT is positioned against the forms, at interrupting objects or columns, and against abutting structures prior to the placement of concrete. FIBRE EXPANSION JOINT should be installed 1/2″ (12.7 mm) below the concrete surface to accept the joint sealant. Before sealing, slide SNAP-CAP® from W. R. MEADOWS over the top of the expansion joint. Place the concrete and screed to finish grade, as usual. When concrete is cured, insert a screwdriver through the top of SNAP-CAP, pull free and discard. For maximum protection from water infiltration and weathering, and to assure proper function, seal the joint with any approved hot- or cold-applied product, such as #164, 3405, HI-SPEC®, SAFE-SEAL, or SOF-SEAL® from W. R. MEADOWS.
