While rubber extrusions serve a wide variety of purposes, expansion joints are undoubtedly one of the most common applications. Elbex’s team is dedicated to providing superior quality in each stage of the manufacturing process, ensuring that our expansion joints provide the stability and protection your project needs.
How Are Expansion Joints Used?
Expansion joints are most commonly used in manufacturing and construction, particularly for industrial piping systems. In piping systems, these rubber extrusions help provide a buffer between surfaces to prevent excess movement and vibration. Expansion joints can also relieve stress on architectural materials by holding structures in place, even as different surfaces expand or contract. This greatly reduces the risk for structural damage.
