Description

We no longer stock this product, but can recommend Everbuild Tecnic Joint Backer Rod as a great alternative.

When using Rust-Oleum 5160 Flexible Joint Filler in cracks that are particularly wide or deep it can be cost effective to use the Rust-Oleum 5160 Flexible Joint Rods which are foam strips to 'pack out' the gap or crack to save on the joint filler.

Rust-Oleum 5160 Flexible Joint Rods are intended to sit below the surface of the crack and be fully covered by the Rust-Oleum 5160 Flexible Joint Filler mixture when applied. The foam strips should not 'protrude' or be visible once the Rust-Oleum 5160 Flexible Joint Filler has cured.

Question: 

Can this product be used to fill internal expansion joints between plasterboard and oak framing, vertically and along ceiling joists? Is it fireproof or is filler required over the top? I'd like to seal the gaps, prevent dust and drafts and reinstate some thermal properties. Thanks.

Answer: 

Unfortauntely not, a flexible mastic such as Sikaflex EBT+ would be recommended for your application. If you need something with fire resistance then Astroflame Intumescent Acoustic Acrylic Mastic could be used.

Question: 

Can this product be used to fill the expansion joints in my concrete drive

Answer: 

Rust-Oleum 5160 Flexible Joint Filler can be used internally and externally for concrete repair and filling of expansion and other floor joint areas. The Rust-Oleum 5160 Flexible Joint Rods you have enquired about specifically should be used to reduce deeper joints to the desired depth before application of Rust-Oleum 5160 Flexible Joint Filler.

Question: 

Can Rust-Oleum 5160 Flexible Joint Rods be used to fill cracks between the vertical sections of a Marley Concrete sectional garage? And without being painted over? Is the material weatherproof as it is? the garage in question has vertical gaps which can tapper from 0 at the top to approximatly 1/2 inch at the bottom, some are parralel all the way down. New bracing bolts have been put in place to hold the concrete sections in place, but they have not been overtightened to try and pull the slabs together in case of cracking the old concrete sections and creating more damage. I just want to fill the gaps and make them weatherproof now they are all held soundly in position. Is Rust-Oleum 5160 Flexible Joint Rods good for the job on their own or do you have any other suggestions.

Answer: 

No, Rust-Oleum 5160 Flexible Joint Rods are not the right thing to use for your joints. We would recommend Rust-Oleum Mathys Elastofill as this is much more suited to your project.
