Backer rod comes in various sizes and will fit tightly into an opening to remain in place and contain self-leveling caulk. George L. Wilson carries backer rod from vendors such as Armacell and Nomoco, as well as tools and accessories to use backer rod.
Expansion joints are generally joints or spaces left between slabs or construction elements of the same material to facilitate expansion and contraction due to changes in ambient temperatures. Expansion joint sealant materials are chosen for their ability to absorb impact and expand or contract along with the rest of the structure without cracking or separating. These sealing agents include several types of fluid or gel epoxies.
George L. Wilson carries a range of expansion joint materials such as Fibre Expansion Joint, Plastic Joint Materials such as Speed-e-Joint and Snap-Cap from WR Meadows as well as Rubber Expansion Joint Material from Reoflex.
