Expansion Joint and Crack Tape

The Ultimate Joint and Crack Sealant System

Excellent Chemical and Temperature
Resistance for Joint or Crack Sealing

The FluoroGrip® Joint and Crack Sealing Systems provides a highly chemical and  temperature resistant method for sealing joints or cracks in compatible materials and substrates such as concrete.

FluoroGrip Joint Tape is a fluoropolymer-based tape manufactured with advanced technology pressure sensitive adhesive for “peel-and-stick” ease of use. It is the ideal replacement for traditional chemical resistant caulks, offering all the advantages of FluoroGrip linings such as:

  • Elastomeric (to 330% elongation)
  • Superior reliability of a fully fluorinated material
  • Highest resistance to harsh chemicals
  • Temperature resistance to 450° F
  • Easier installation than traditional sealants
  • Reduced labor and installation costs
  • No VOCs and / or hazardous solvents – safer

FluoroGrip Joint Tape protects against corrosive/reactive liquids leaking into expansion, control joints and cracks in concrete and other materials. It stands up to a wide range of harsh chemicals such as organic and inorganic acids, solvents and more. Review the PDF flyer below for additional information.

Installation Instructions

  1. Clean and remove unsound surfaces – high pressure water, grit blasting, grinding or sanding.
  2. If no existing primer is present, one can be applied to the concrete (Figures 1 and 2). If no primer is to be used, the Mx-Membrane joint tape only requires that the concrete be
    prepared to Nace No. 6 (Figure 3).
  3. Remove backing from sealant tape and apply over joint or crack (typically 4 to 6 inches wide). Activate
    pressure sensitive adhesive with roller or burnishing tool, using moderate pressure.
  4. Edge Sealing Procedures for FluoroGrip® joint tape:
    Figure 1 – Saw cut terminate the tape and seal tape edges with a fluoroelastomer caulk
    or equivalent.
    Figure 2 – Apply chemically resistant primer over the joint and seal tape edges with a fluoroelastomer caulk or equivalent.
    Figure 3– Apply fluoroelastomer caulk or equivalent.
