VFI®-5000 90 A Expansion Joint Filler

VFI®-5000 90 A Expansion Joint Filler is a two-part, 90 A hardness joint filler ideal for providing a seal within a joint. The strong elastomeric properties of VFI-5000 are critical when expansion and contraction occurs to make sure the joint stays sealed. VFI-5000 Expansion Joint Filler has a fast cure time for decreased down time allowing the material to be trimmed quickly after application. Whether machine dispensed or using the QWIK SPRAY SYSTEM, VFI-5000 gives the versatility to be either a patching joint filler or the primary joint filler.

Two-part 90 A Polyurea Joint filler ideal for expansion joints and provides elastomeric properties to keep the joint sealed.
