The low compressive strength prevents the transfer of load across joint interfaces and makes it ideal for forming soft compression joints and expansion joints in brickwork facades, as recommended by (BS5628, Part 3, 1985- Use of Masonry, Clause 20.4). Being low density it is also useful for forming isolation joints for machine bases or similar locations.
