Expansion joint profile - UdiREINFORCEMENT


UdiREINFORCEMENT expansion joint profile is:-

  • easy to use, PVC exterior expansion joint profile with fibreglass mesh welded to it’s surface for strength
  • for providing a clean, weather tight expansion joint detail to insulation systems.
  • for creating the required detailing for fire breaks across party walls in insulations systems.
  • for using with all thin layer renders from Unger-Diffutherm, Baumit, etc.

Where is it used?

  • UdiREINFORCEMENT expansion joint profile provides a neat, weather tight expansion detail or it can be used as part of a fire break and party wall detail.
  • It should be used with all of the Unger-Diffutherm systems where continuous facades of 18m or more are being constructed. 
  • See the download here for more details

 How is it used?

  • UdiREINFORCEMENT expansion joint profile should be installed prior to the main mesh.
  • There should be a continuous channel between the two facades of around 10mm to enable the insertion of the profile.
  • Install the profile and check that once in-situ a gap of at least 2mm will be maintained across the profile.
  • Remove the profile and apply a thin layer of UdiFOUNDATION COAT render to the surface of the insulation boards.
  • Re-install the profile and trowel the mesh into the render and leave ready to apply the main mesh and render coat.
  • To maintain an even gap down the length of the profile, temporary spacers can be used such as strips of ply.

How much will you need?

  • Each length of UdiREINFORCEMENT expansion joint profile is 2.5m long. Pieces can be joined end to end, so just measure the total running length required.

These beads are available individually or in packs of 25 pcs
