'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.
