Does anyone know the proper name or the name of a product used between concrete joints? I had this epoxy rubber type material in the space between my two large concrete slabs for my driveway. It's since deteriorated down to almost nothing. I also often see this epoxy type material used in the joints throughout the city mainly in front of large office buildings. Thanks so much in advance :)

it should've been neither caulk NOR epoxy,,, most likely it probably was either polyurethane OR silicone - both are sealants & need to be installed correctly to result in acceptable service life,,, you can find info by looking at dow-corning's install directions which also notes the use of closed cell backer rod to prevent full adhesion as you only want joint sealant to adhere to the joint walls - good luck !
