SpECcell Polyethylene 60

CLOSED CELL POLYETHYLENE FOAM JOINT FILLER BOARD

SpECcell Polyethylene 60 is a semi-rigid, high
performance closed cell polyethylene foam joint
filler. It is suitable for use as an expansion joint
filler in concrete, brickwork and blockwork, and in
isolation joints where a readily compressible low
load transfer joint filler is required.

SpECcell Polyethylene 60 is non-tainting and
therefore suitable for use in potable water retaining
structures.

Technical Details

. Structural expansion joints in concrete, brick and blockwork

Meets the requirements of BS 5628 Part 3 

SpECcell Polyethylene 60 is a compressible joint filler in sheet form, used to form and fill expansion joints.

In concrete
SpECcell Polyethylene 60 can be placed against formwork on the concreting side prior to placing the first section of concrete and is left in place on removal of the formwork. The subsequent pour is then cast directly against the SpECcell Polyethylene 60. The fibre board is then cut back later to form the sealing slot.

In blockwork and brick
SpECcell Polyethylene 60 should be installed, whilst laying brick or blockwork, in such a way that a sealing slot, of the required dimensions is formed.
SpECcell Polyethylene 60 is available in the following sizes:
. Thickness: 10, 15, 20 & 25mm
. Board size: 1m ×2m
