Description Is export quality bitumen impregnated expansion joint filler (Sheet / Board) of an ISO 9001:2001 certified company for last more than 50 years. Is Processed From Cane Fiber and Bitumen. These raw materials are tested and proven to provide the best resilience Is made with Swedish Machinery and technology, Developed. Through years of intensive research. Is available in a wide Range of thicknesses and sizes. Is a environment friendly product a Opposed to the environment destroying thermo-cole / Plastic Expansion Joint Fillers. The Boards Compression and recovery characteristics conform to the American, European, British And Indian Standards.

Advantage
Low moisture absorption due to Bitumen Impregnation.

Durability and easy handling:

It is tough and maintains its thickness and surface finish under loading and stacking. Due to Bitumen Impregnation it resists absorption of water. This material withstands severe environmental conditions for very long periods of time.


Excellent concrete bonding:

The rough textured surface provides a good bond between the expansion joint filler and poured concrete.
It allows free movement of Concrete slabs during expansion and contraction.
It resist entry of foreign matters into the joint space.


Application Methodology
Remove dust, flakes or foreign particles by jet or dry air and clean the surface.
Apply primer in the grooves where Kanico Board is to be applied. Cut Kanico Board of appropriate width from the desired thickness and place the same in groove in a way to flush with the external surface except the space required for Kanico Sealant.
In case of new casting, Kanico Board of appropriate width is fixed with copper screw before poring concrete. The width is designed to flush with the external surface except the space required for Kanico Sealant.

Physical Properties

Compression:
Kanico® Expansion Joint Filler Board when initially subjected to a load between 689 to 5171 kPa (or 100 to 750 PSi) in order to compress it by 50% of its original thickness, it shows a loss of not more than 0.1 to 0.2% by weight. (Permitted: less than or equal to 3% by weight).

Extrusion:
Kanico® Expansion Joint Filler Board when compressed to 50% of its thickness with 3 edges restrained, it shows an extrusion of not more than 2 to 3mm on its free edge. (Permitted: less than or equal to 6.4mm)

Recovery:
Kanico® Expansion Joint Filler Board when compressed to 50% of its thickness, within 10, omits after the load is removed. (Permitted: at least 70% or higher)Unaffected by temperature changes Kanico® Expansion Joint Filler Board holds its shape without appreciable dimension change when exposed to temperature extremes. It does not get soft at higher temperatures nor brittle at lower temperatures.Conforms to required standards of expansion joint filers As per: ASTM- D. 1751, BS 1142, As per: IS 1838

Health & Safety:
Use goggles and hand gloves during application.
Clean hands with warm soap water after application.
