Joint Filling, Sealing, Repair and Stabilization
Concrete Floor Joint Filling:
Virtually all interior floor slabs have saw-cut control, contraction, and cold joints. Over time, heavy point loads from material handling equipment, i.e. forklifts and pallet jacks will break the edges of these joints, causing them to spall out and worsen over time. A floor joint that has been properly cleaned, prepared, and filled with a joint filler will minimize or eliminate this damage.
Ace/Avant’s Specialty Division installs over 500,000 linear feet of interior slab joint fillers annually. We are a Metzger/McGuire approved applicator, have state of the art dual component, joint filling pumps, as well as propane powered clean out saws that are used to properly prepare these floor joints.

- Neoprene compression joint sealant
- Two component elastomeric joint sealant
- Cold poured Jet Fuel Resistant (JFR) joint sealant
Concrete Slab Stabilization:
Material handling operations that take place repeatedly on the surface of a concrete slab often cause concrete settlement and voids under the slab to occur. These slab on grade concrete surfaces can become unstable as well as dangerous. These problems become intensified in commercial/industrial warehouses that use heavy, solid wheel forklifts and other material handling equipment.
Ace/Avant’s Specialty Division provides slab stabilization and slab underpinning services. The injection of a high density, structural grade polyurethane foam inside voids underneath settling or rocking concrete slabs can support them without excavation and added weight. The polyurethane material is fast setting and fast curing, to minimize any possible downtime.
