Product Information
Low density, compressible, closed cell polyethylene filler for structural expansion joints and building facadesUses:Aerofil 1 is a white, inert, preformed, closed cell, polyethylene joint filler suitable for structural movementjoints in concrete, brick and blockwork.
Aerofil 1’s low compressive strength prevents the transfer of load across joint interfaces and makes it idealfor forming soft compression joints and expansion joints in brickwork facades as recommended by BS 5628:Part 3: 1985 Use of Masonry Clause 20.
4.
Aerofil 1 is equally suitable as a low compression joint filler for bridge expansion joints as specified inDepartment of Transport, Scottish Development Dept.
, Welsh Office, Dept.
of the Environment forNorthern Ireland, Specification for Highway Works Series 1015 where it is essential to prevent transmissionof horizontal forces to the abutment walls.
Aerofil 1’s low density is also useful for forming isolation joints for machine bases or similar locations.
Theclosed cell construction also prevents moisture absorption.
Aerofil can be used on internal finishes as a gap filler or backing filler to walls, pipes, kitchen and sanitary ware before sealing with a surface sealant.
Advantages
- Low compression
- accepts temperature cycles with minimal load transfer.

- Closed cell
- prevents water absorption.

- 90% after release of load.

- Chemical resistant
- inert to most dilute acids and alkalis, resistant to oil and hydrocarbons.

- Easily worked
- can be cut with sharp knife, economical in use.

- Board form
- for structural expansion joints in concrete, brick and blockwork.

- Cut Strip form
- in a range of sizes with rip-off edge to form neat sealant rebate.
