Installation Instructions

When Estocell is used to form an expansion joint in concrete, it should be placed against the shuttering on the concreting side before the pour commences.

Copper nails may be used to prevent displacement in joints in suspended slabs.

Estocell may be bonded to the existing slab or previous pour using a suitable adhesive such as Estoflex GP, bitumen emulsion or equivalent wall panel adhesive.

Care should be taken not to contaminate surfaces of the sealing slot with the adhesive.

Joint Sealing

Putting a removable timber former on top of the Estocell can form a joint sealing slot.

Estocell can be installed to the full dept of the slab and cut back to the required depth then using a power brush machine. This method is used for housing estate roads, which cannot be cleaned and sealed until all building work had been completed.

Estocell should be tamped down to ensure that it fills the joint completely and provides continuous support for the joint sealant.
