Rubber Expansion Joints
Jefferson Rubber produces a range of high-performance quality products including expansion joints that compensate for pressure and expansion changes across a wide range of applications. This is achieved through maximizing design and advanced compound technology involving combining rubber or synthetic rubber with woven fabrics.
Expansion joints are manufactured by manually wrapping fabric reinforced rubber sheets, molding rubber compounds or automated winding of rubber and reinforcing layers.
For varying construction applications, rubber compounds used can be formulated to resist oil, grease, petrol, salt, and sand, without being vulnerable to premature aging from sunlight, salt, and snow. These joints remain watertight and low maintenance in all weather conditions.
