Plug For Taper Tie Voids
Taper Tie Voids
The X-Plug® is a “patent pending” mechanical plug specifically designed to SEAL the void formed in a concrete wall by the removal of a taper tie rod or pass through tie sleeve.
With the X-Plug’s mechanical design, tightening of the stainless steel nut causes an expansion of the EPDM rubber plug, increasing its diameter inside the taper tie void. This action simultaneously compresses the main body plug onto the bolt to create a liquid-tight seal between the plug and the wall of the taper tie void.
SuperTie™ System Overall Advantages
SuperTie™ systems are appropriate for use in all forming applications but are especially beneficial in situations such as architectural finishes because the rod is cut to the length required at the jobsite.
Non-Corrosive Hi-Strength Dowel Bar System
FiberDowel™ is our fiberglass dowelbar system. FiberDowel will never corrode and is just as strong if not stronger that its steel alternative.
PVC Chamfers provide smooth, professional, uninterrupted finish for all right angle material intersections . . . e.g. corners, piers, etc . . . They can be reused many times, effecting a substantial savings over wood for this application.
From big box pours, to manufacturing plants, parking lots and bridges MAKO Screed Support Systems make the difference. Our initial sales have received a tremendous response – over to you to try them out.
Joint Free Slabs
Joint free slabs use an engineered plastic grid to induce a closely spaced network of fine cracks throughout the entire length and breadth of large- area slabs on grade, and thereby eliminate all traditional formed and sawn shrinkage control joints.
The principal objective with joint free slabs is to dissipate the effects of drying shrinkage as uniformly as possible in the form of fine cracks throughout the entire area of the slab, and to produce only fine cracks that do not adversely affect applied surface finishes.
Load Transfer Systems & Dowel Baskets
Quality flat slabs are crucial components of commercial and industrial
facilities. The ability to transport materials and products efficiently can
be impeded by poor performing concrete joints, uncontrolled cracks and
surface imperfections. A properly designed slab will allow equipment to
travel across the surface and joints with minimal impact to the slab or the
Sika load transferring products have long been known as products to improve
concrete joint performance, including joints in slabs. Properly designed and
constructed joints are key to producing a slab that will provide the owner
years of service. Often subject to internal and external stresses, these
joints must be designed to withstand many forces. Proper joint design
includes a dowel system to transfer loads across and manage stresses within

Clean Strip (J-1-A)
CLEAN STRIP™ (J-1-A) is a V.O.C. compliant, economical petroleum based, chemically reactive concrete form release supplied ready-to-use. Now with improved spray-ability in colder temperatures and a light citrus scent.
- Chemically reactive
- Positive release
- Maintains viscosity in colder temperatures for improved sprayability
- Light citrus scent
- V.O.C. compliant in all regions
Clean Strip Ultra Light (J-3 Light)
Clean Strip Ultra Light (J-3 Light) is a premium, low-odor, chemically-reactive form release that is V.O.C. compliant in all regulatory regions. It is ideal for architectural and precast concrete and for general forming applications. Ultra Light is supplied ready-to-use. Ultra Light works to ensure clean, positive release of plywood, fiberglass, aluminum, steel and other concrete forming materials. This product acts as a barrier to the adhesion of concrete while minimizing surface dusting. Ultra Light prolongs the life of plywood forms, and acts to reduce rusting of steel forms. Properly applied, Ultra Light will not stain concrete or interfere with the adhesion of coatings.
- V.O.C. compliant: Federal EPA, OTC, LADCO, CARB & SCAQMD
- Coverage up to 2,000 ft2/gal.
- Extended form life
- Reduced labor normally used to clean forms
- Minimizes concrete surface dusting
- Helps prevent rusting of steel forms
- Compatible with most form liners
- Low odor
In conjunction with good concrete placement and forming technique, this quality product promotes easy stripping, minimizes form clean up, is non-staining, and reduces the number of surface air voids (bugholes) on regular and super-plasticized concrete.
