(57) A joint form is positioned in a damaged expansion joint to allow both sides of the joint to be repaired at the same time. The joint form remains as a permanent part of the repair, which avoids the time consuming convertional process of removing temporary forms, cleaning the repaired surfaces, and inserting an elastomeric seal into the expansion joint. Type 0 joint forms include a block-seal laminate indluding a foam block layer (e.g., closed-cell polyethylene) laminated to an upper elastomeric seal layer (e.g., closed-dell neoprene) without a stiffener board. Typ-1 joint forms include a block-seal laminate with a stiffener board. (e.g., fiberglass reinforced plastic or FRP) adhered to one side of the block-seal laminate. Type 2 joint forms include a pair of block-seal laminate panels on either side of a central stiffener board bonded to one side laminated to an upper seal layer. Joint forms may also be utilized to seal undamaged expansion joints.
