Seals of Control Joints and Gaps in Floors, Walls & Partitions


It is important to be aware of some basic facts regarding the application of sealant within control joints before attempting any installation of such products.

There is considerably more to providing an effective seal at a joint than merely filling the “as constructed” gap with an impervious material. The function of the gap filler depends as much on the movement to be accommodated at the joint and on the shape of the joint as on the physical properties of the material placed within the joint.
