Filling concrete control joints is not only aesthetically pleasing but also protects the edges of the joints from chipping and breaking. When surfaces receive heavy amounts of cart or forklift traffic filling the joints will reduce the risk of damaging the concrete surface. In manufacturing facilities filling the control joints can greatly reduce contaminates entering production lines. In food processing and restaurant settings filling the joints will prevent food items from entering the joint creating harmful bacteria. The joint filler material can be custom colored to blend better with concrete stains and colored concrete. We fill control joints on polished and non polished concrete.
We prepare the joints by re-cutting them with a special saw equipped with a powerful dust collector. This removes any debri and cleans the edges of the joints. The joint is then vacuumed out to remove any remaining dust and provide a good bond with the joint filler. Next we place a backer rod in the joints so we can apply the material at a consistent depth. We then fill the joints using our bulk polyurea pumps or cartridges depending on the size of the job. The joints are slightly overfilled then shaved flush once cured, typically 45 minutes. Once shaved the floor can receive traffic immediately.
