    Extending Joint Spacing

    Reduce or eliminate cut joints

    Preventing cracks in concrete is traditionally achieved with steel reinforcement and saw-cutting of joints. These practices can lead to many problems for concrete contractors and building owners. The steel is difficult to position, the silica dust and noise can be a hazard, and taking the time to cut joints reduces productivity. In addition, drying shrinkage can cause curling and cracking, and cut joints can eventually become tripping hazards. 

    BASF’s Extending Joint Spacing solution is a system of products and concrete mix design that can not only reduce the problems associated with saw-cutting joints, it can also help to increase the spacing between joints and could potentially eliminate the need for cut joints altogether. BASF’s Extending Joint Spacing system is a revolutionary approach to making cut joints a distant memory.
