Technical Polyethylene Foam Cord for Expansion Joints
CORDOFLEX is a closed cell polyethylene foam cord with minimal water absorption for sizing static and dynamic joints in the building industry. Available in different sizes that ranges from 6mm to 50mm in diameter and could be applied both vertically and horizontally.
CORDOFLEX serves as an excellent support for elastomeric sealants and as an efficient back up material for joint sealing applications.
CORDOFLEX is available in the following diameter (mm); 10, 15, 20, 25, 30.
Keep the product in dry and covered shed. Do not expose CORDOFLEX into direct sunlight and keep away from all sources of heat.

All surfaces where the waterstop is to be applied must be dry, smooth, clean, free from dust, laitance or loose materials. When otherwise necessary, it is highly recommended to use compressed air or a wire brush in order to remove further dirt, oil stains and other inconsistencies.
Cut CORDOFLEX according to the required length and lay it along the joints accordingly. Gently push the cord against the joint with extra caution not to damage the skin of the material.
Make sure that the diameter of CORDOFLEX is approximately 20% to 25% (required depth to width ratio) greater than the width of the joint in order to ensure that the cord is tightly held in position. This procedure enhances further the aesthetic effect of the material when done on a firm base.
The joint should then be sealed with a suitable sealant from COLMEF product range.
There are no health hazards in connection with CORDOFLEX in normal use.
CORDOFLEX is a combustible product. Avoid any exposure to all sources of ignition or flame.
