OTHER

Care and Maintenance:
The Expansion Joint Cover material is comprised of a thermoplastic rubber and aluminum. General care and cleaning is achieved using a commercial grade cleaner and water. In no instance should an acid based product be used to clean the aluminum or rubber surfaces. For heavy cleaning of scuffmarks, a commercial grade spray cleaner can be used for spot cleaning and touch-up (Fantastik, 409, etc.). For unexposed Expansion Joint Covers there is no cleaning required to maintain performance. Any roof Expansion Joint Covers can be cleaned with a mild soap and water. Again, no acid based products should be used.

Any additional information concerning our products can be received through your representative, or by calling Construction Specialties, Inc. directly at 1-800-233-8493.
