Since 1997, L & S Thermal Products has become of the leaders in the manufacture of Expansion Joints throughout Africa. Using the latest technology and a knowledge pool of over 40 years' expierence, our trained technical staff are able to manufacture tailor made Expansion Joints to suit virtually any application. All our Joints are manufactured locally at our Alrode Factory in Johannesburg.
From high temperature Silicones to EPDM and Neoprene, from glass to Ceramics and from Graphite Products to Steel Mesh materials, L & S thermal Products manufacutres every Expansion Joint to suit each client's application. We use only tried and tested materials in the design and manufacture of our Fabric Expansion Joints. From -60°C to 1200°C, we have a joint to suit virtually all applications.
Our range of Expansion Joints include:
• F-Type Range - Using mainly Red Oxide Silicone Glass in the manufacture of our F-Type Range, this material has
proven sucessful in numerous applications and has been used in Expansion Joint manufacture for over 40 years.
We can also supply our F-Type Range in other outer materials such as Neoprene, EPDM and even PVC for low
• E- Type Range - Over the last 8 years we have developed our own methods of splicing to the equivalent of
overseas manufacturers. Primarily using EPDM Rubber we are able to manufacture both single ply and multi-
layer Joints. We can also manufacture in Neoprene, Butyl and other various rubber materials. From temperatures
of 150°C to 550°C, our E-Type Range are suited to most low temperature applications in very harsh conditions.
• L-Type Range: This range of Joints uses a high performance PTFE material which has exceptional chemical and
temperature performance. The PTFE type material has proven itself time and again as a high performance solution
Expansion Joint application.
