What is a bridging joint?
Sealing overloaded joints that are subject to intensive movements and repairing old bitumen and sealant joints using traditional methods is often technically difficult. Bridging joints are the answer here. A bridging joint is an overlapping, uninterrupted strip of elastic joint mass applied to the substrate. The joint mass is reinforced by a reinforcing mesh.
Elastic and flexible bridging joints are often used to guarantee liquid tightness at locations where there is vehicle traffic, such as parking decks. They ensure pathways are level and are capable of absorbing significant movements.
