Aluminium profile for expansion joints on floors, made with aluminum, has arrow shape, so it is specially indicated for high thickness floorings. Consists of two metal profiles with a flexible EPDM rubber inside.
This expansion joint has a decorative plate in the visible side which hides the EPDM rubber. In this way, is a functional profile, absorbs movements and a decorative profile.
Expansion joint profile whose main function is to absorb the expansion and contraction movements of the pavement in order to avoid the appearance of pathologies in the facilities. It can be installed vertically and horizontally on both floor and wall tiles.
Technical characteristics and tests
Expansion joint made by extrusion of aluminum. The profiles have been anodized, mainly improving through this process their resistance to corrosion, mechanical resistance and appearance. The anodizing carried out has the Qualanod quality seal, which guarantees the quality of the process and the resulting profiles. This seal regulates appearance and color tests, thickness measurements, sealing and impregnation control, resistance to abrasion, light fastness, acetic salt chamber and nitric acid immersion. The natural finish does not have any surface treatment, so It has less resistance to corrosion and scratching. Installation is not recommended without the application of additional protection. Aluminum is a material with excellent chemical and physical-mechanical properties. It is light, tough, ductile, malleable and highly durable. Its resistance to corrosion and fire is very good.
The central body of this gasket is made of high quality EPDM. EPDM is an elastomeric polymer with excellent mechanical properties. It has good resistance to abrasion, wear and impact, is a good insulator, resists weathering, the most common chemical products and its wide working temperature range. Its excellent recovery after compression is key in the absorption function of the deformations and geometric variations of the constructive elements.
As an expansion joint
As a perimeter joint
These recommendations are the minimum dimensions to consider. The particularities of each project may make it necessary to place the joints at a smaller distance or in another arrangement. Pavement joints must be taken into account from the project phase. The correct design and dimensioning of the joint pattern, together with an adequate choice of materials and correct execution of the installation will help prevent the appearance of pathologies.
Cleanliness and maintenance
Cleaning must be carried out periodically with a soft cloth. If you choose to use a neutral cleaning liquid, clear it with cold water and dry it to remove excess moisture. The persistent success can be eliminated with cleaning agents suitable for slightly abrasive cleaning or with a neutral colored octopus grating. If you apply a preserving agent, in addition to leaving a thin layer of water repellent, you should also remember that it must not be yellow, attracting the octopus to success without having any effects.
It is not recommended to use steel wool, abrasive products or paint strippers like acid fuels (hydrochloric and perchloric), fuel bases (caustic soda or ammonia) or carbonated solutions. Also, citric acid must be used to remove the protective oxide layer from the aluminum surface. Waxes, petroleum jelly, lanolin are similar in sound. Avoid dissolving solvents with haloalkanes (hydrofluoroethers or chlorinated solvents) and fragrance accelerants containing chlorides (use accelerants without chlorides).
