EXPANSION JOINT FILLER
DECK-O-FOAM expansion joint filler is a flexible, lightweight, non-staining, polyethylene, closed-cell expansion joint filler. It is a chemical-resistant, ultraviolet stable, non-absorbent, low density, cost-effective, compressible foam that offers an extended service life in both interior and exterior applications.
DECK-O-FOAM is supplied with a convenient, pre-scored removable strip to provide a uniform sealing reservoir in the joint. It also serves as a sealant bond-breaker and provides a cost-effective alternative as an expansion joint in all concrete paving projects. It is compatible with all currently available cold-applied sealants.
DECK-O-FOAM is ideal for use as an expansion, contraction, and/or isolation joint in swimming pool decks, curb and gutter work, floor slabs, pavement patch repair, sidewalks, driveways, plazas, parking decks, highways, and airport runways.
- Pre-scored strip is easily removed.
- Economical alternative to expansion joints.
- Controls amount of sealant needed and acts as a bond breaker.
- Eliminates costly sawing and routing.
- Flexible, lightweight, and can be formed around curved objects.
- Easy to install.
- Can be used in interior or exterior applications.

These physical properties are typical, but should not be used in specifying material due to differences that could result from variations in testing methods.
Attach DECK-O-FOAM securely to the existing concrete slab, coping, or form with tape or mechanical fasteners prior to pouring the next slab. Make sure that DECK-O-FOAM is level with the desired slab surfaces before finishing. If specifications require the use of a cold-applied sealant, remove the pre-scored strip and apply the sealant following the manufacturer’s instructions.
