Uses: SEALTIGHT SPONGE RUBBER Expansion Joint is frequently
used on bridge structures and sewage treatment plants that
undergo rapid changes in temperature. Because of its excellent
recovery capability, during wide temperature variations, SPONGE
RUBBER is used around supporting pillars drains, hydrants, lamp
and sign posts as well as in isolation applications or between
materials having dissimilar coefficients of expansion.

Some other advantages:
• XYPEX is not just a coating. Because the crystalline formation
   becomes an integral part of the concrete, XYPEX does not rely
   on its surface coating to waterproof concrete.
• XYPEX will seal hairline cracks up to 1/64 inch.
• XYPEX does not require costly surface priming or leveling
   prior to application.
• XYPEX cannot puncture, tear or come apart at the seams.
• XYPEX does not require protection during backfilling or
   during placement of steel, wire mesh or other materials.
• XYPEX is less costly to apply than most other methods.
