Concrete Floor Joint Comparison Overview

Because it shrinks and cracks, concrete need to be saw cut, requiring joints every 12 to 16 feet to control the miles of cracks that develop in a large floor. Concrete dries and shrinks from the top down resulting in curling and widening of the joint. The joints are prone to deterioration, creating maintenance costs, lost productivity, and wear on material handling equipment, such as forklifts and automatically-guided vehicles or AGVs.

In the last two decades, innovations have increased the distance between joints from 12 to 16 feet, to 50 feet or more. Some steel-fiber systems have been poured with no saw cuts for smaller placements. While better than traditional concrete, these systems still shrink resulting in large dominant joints.

PrīmXComposite does not require saw cuts or joints within the same one acre placement, or more—eliminating over a mile of joints per single placement. On a typical floor, many miles of joints are eliminated.

PrīmXComposite allows racking to be placed without consideration for rebar, saw cuts or joint placement. Bolts can be placed where needed without the chance of hitting rebar. With no-curl joints, your entire floor surface is flat, allowing complete flexibility.
