Floor Joint Filling with a Polyurea System in Chicago
By Painters USA Team
— Last updated December 28, 2022
We’ve talked in the past about the value of repairing expansion joints in your concrete slab. These crucial elements in the floor’s design and structure allow for limited flex in the surface, staying strong but also helping to avoid stress cracks in the concrete from the constant weight of machinery, foot traffic, and equipment. After all, a brittle surface with zero flex is ultimately weaker than one that can give just a little bit.
But what about filling and sealing those floor joints?
FLOOR JOINT FILLING AND SEALING WITH ONE PRODUCT
For many years, filling and sealing floor joints was seen as being two separate tasks. Recently, however, it has become widely accepted that using a polyurea joint filler can accomplish both missions (filling and sealing) with one product. And, when used in conjunction with our automated mix pump machinery, we can take on even your largest joint filling and sealing needs in the most efficient way possible.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING A POLYUREA JOINT FILLING SYSTEM?
In addition to being an all-in-one product, it also offers the following benefits:
- Allows control joints to function properly while providing a barrier against moisture and debris
- Because of how quickly it cures, the polyurea system will allow you to be back up and running within 1-2 hours
- Can be used in extremely cold temperatures - in some cases down to 20 degrees below zero
- All aspects of control joint protection requirements are met while still accepting up to 15% joint movement
