The product can be used with any concrete work requiring expansion or isolation joints such as driveways, curbs, pools, spas, and drains.
Several problems with assembly and overall design of isolating gasket kits were isolated during an in-depth testing program and during subsequent assembly and testing of more than 300 isolation joints. These problems were not particular to the isolating gaskets themselves, but more to the interactive behavior of the assembled connection.
Isolation joints are strips of compressible material (isolation strip) in the slab.
