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.
It is your responsibility to read the Product Data Sheets (available below) before you place an order and prior to application of the product. The content of this website is our best recommendation and is not advice. Coverage rates quoted are approximate, you agree that coverage depends on the condition of the substrate, surface absorption, texture and application method. We ALWAYS recommend a trial area is coated to ensure the product meets your requirements before use.

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.
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.
