Application Information
Instructions for use

Hole Preparation

Anchor bolt holes should be drilled using air or rotary percussive drilling equipment. If diamond core or non-percissive drilling equipment. If diamond core or non-percussive drills are used then the sides of the hole must be thoroughly roughened.

Hole Cleaning

Drilling debris and dust must be thoroughly cleaned from the hole using a stiff nylon bottle brush and clean compressed air and / or clean water. If water is used, the hole may be left damp or even full of water, but the water and the sides of the hole must be clean.

Application

Drill the hole to the correct diameter and depth using a rotary percussive machine. Clean the hole using a stiff wire or nylon brush and clean compressed air blow pump.

Once the hole is prepared, remove the screw cap and red plug from the cartridge. Attach mixer nozzle, place in applicator gun and dispense the first part of the cartridge to waste until an even color is achieved. Insert the mixer nozzle to the far end of the hole and half fill hole (depending upon application). Withdrawing the nozzle as the hole fills.

For deep holes, extension tubing can be used. Immediately insert the fixing. This should be done slowly with a slight twisting motion.

Excess resin should be removed from the mouth of the hole before it sets. Leave the fixing undisturbed until loading time has elapsed. Attach the fixture and thighten the nut.

Cleaning

Drilling debris and dust must be thoroughly cleaned from the hole using a stiff nylon bottle brush and clean compressed air or blow pump.

Recommendations

  • Do not add other materials to ANCHOR FIX EP
  • Do not mix more grout than can be applied within the pot life of the material
  • Do not apply on crumbling surfaces.
  • Do not apply on dusty surfaces.
  • Do not use on surfaces with traces of oil, grease and form-release compound, adhesion may be compromised or reduced.
  • Do not apply if the air temperature or if the temperature of the substrate are lower than +5°C.
  • Do not apply loads until it has completely cured grout may become significant.
  • Anchoring strength depends on: strength of substrate, resin embedded length, hole preparation, steel bar type and diameter.

Load Testing

On-site load tests should always be performed to determine the actual performance prior to use, as it is dependent on many variables.

Gel and Loading Times

Keep the product in dry, covered conditions between +10°C to +25°C.  In these conditions, product stability is 12 months from date of manufacturing.
