Flex Epoxy - Flexible Control Joint Filler

 
 

Description

Flex-Epoxy is a 100% solids, two component, equal volume elastic type epoxy. If is a self-leveling system used for saw-cut control joints and grooves in masonry.

Basic Uses

Flex-Epoxy is recommended for use as a filter and sealer for narrow masonry control joints and grooves to prevent damage to the joint and its edges as well as promote a clean sanitary surface.
