Composite Expansion Joints

Expansion joints are used to provide a point of flexibility in flue ducts, and to relieve stress caused by system movement. A composite expansion joint consists of layers of material bounded, sewn or mechanically fastened together along the edges. Each layer of material is designed to function independently of the others.

Our Effox-Flextor brand Composite Expansion Joints are engineered to deliver optimal performance and efficiency. With temperature applications from 600°F to in excess of 1500°F, and an outer later material consisting of woven fiberglass and fluoropolymer resins for chemical resistance, we confidently deliver durable and reliable solutions, while meeting your specific application needs and environmental standards.
