The construction industry across the world, is witnessing a tremendous boom. The role of organizations like Supreme Industries in supporting the construction industry has become prominent and critical. Exposure to world-class expertise and advent of global players has led to infusion of new materials, equipment and technologies in the construction practices in India. 'DURAboardHD100' from the Supreme family nevertheless is a testimony to the same.

Throughout the year, building faces, concrete slabs and pipelines expand and contract due to the warming and cooling through seasonal variation, or due to other heat sources. If expansion joints were not implemented in bridges, building, highways etc. the intense heat in the summer would expand the metal, brick, or concrete materials in a structure resulting in developing cracks and may at the end could break. 'DURAboardHD100' (formerly SILflex/Capell HD100) is an exclusive compressible filler board specially designed to be used as expansion joint filler in concrete brick, block work and isolation joint, it is readily compressible and low load transfer joint filler with excellent recovery property.

'DURAboardHD100' is an offering from the Construction Accessories Division of Supreme. The Construction Accessories Division of Supreme has developed customized solutions specifically for the construction requirements of various segments. Ajay Mohta, General Manager, Construction Accessories Division, the Supreme Industries Ltd, adds “This division offers new generation, better alternative products to conventional materials like rubber, metals, and wood, thus being cost effective. The 'DURA' ranges of products are manufactured from virgin raw material and we do not use any CFC / HCFC gases. At every stage of the manufacturing process, a stringent quality check methodology assures the reliability of the products, a case in point is the creation of a low compression set filler board 'DURAboardHD100' especially for expansion joints application, to replace less effective bitumen board based solutions".
