Low Density Expansion and Movement Joint Filler

All TEXELL low density expansion and movement joint fillers are ideal for use in brickwork and blockwork due to their low compressive strengths. Also ideal for expansion and isolation joints in concrete slab construction. They are specified, therefore, in the construction of hardstandings, factories and warehouses, community and commercial buildings, airports and military bases etc.



Texell 3 is a cream coloured, closed cell, cross- linked, polyethylene, low resistance joint filler, for use in brick and blockwork. It fully meets the specification of BS5628 Pt 3: 2001 Section 5.4.3 – Code of Practice for use of masonry.

It also meets the Department of Transport Specification 1015 for Roads and Bridges.

Texell 3 is ozone, oil, and weather resistant, and has very low water absorption properties of <1% by volume. Where Texell 3 is used as a joint filler, there is no need for any additional bond breaker.


In general terms the size/width of the joint should be double the expected total movement, allowing for the compressibility of both the filler and the mastic.
