FAST SETTING EPOXY ANCHORING GROUT
ANCHORTITE EP is a two part toughened epoxy adhesive that cures rapidly and will permanently bond together most building substrates found within the construction industry.
ANCHORTITE EP is supplied in 1 Liter kit (2 Components).
Keep the product in dry, covered conditions between +10ºC to +25ºC. In these conditions, product stability is 12 months from date of manufacturing.
Surface should be dry, clean, sound and uncontaminated. Laitance and loose particles must be removed by either sandblasting or mechanical grinding.
All steel surfaces must be clean, dry, free from rust, oil, grease. Shot blasted to Swedish Standard SA 2 ½ is preferable to achieve a white metal finish prior to application.
ANCHORTITE EP consists of two components, Part A (resin) and Part B (hardener).Empty entire contents of Part B into Part A and mix thoroughly but quickly over a period of 2-3 minutes. Mixing can be carried out by hand or by electric drill and small paddle attachment. Ensure you reach the bottom and sides of the tin to thoroughly mix together both components. Smaller amounts can be mixed together in correct proportions to avoid unnecessary wastage. Having mixed the two components together, use all within 10 minutes.
Fixing Cat Eye
Fill 2/3 of the hole with ANCHORTITE EP mixture ensuring no air entrapment. Insert the stud lug in a twisting motion. Extra adhesive must be applied on the surface for fixing the stud onto the surface.
Dowel Setting Application
Application can be made by mechanical, pneumatic dosage equipment, caulking guns or by hand. Force the mixture into the drilled hole then insert the steel bar with a twisting motion to ensure intimate contact and a good bond without air entrapment. Lightly tap the anchor/dowel to
ensure complete embedment. Wipe off any excess material from the surface.
The gel time of ANCHORTITE EP at +25ºC is approximately 8-10 minutes. Traffic may be opened in 3 hours after mixing and placing (at higher temperature curing would be faster).
All used tools should be cleaned with SOLVENTE 10 before the product cures. Cured materials should be mechanically removed.
n Exposure to temperatures exceeding +68.5 ºC for prolonged period is not recommended
n Do not add other materials to ANCHORTITE EP
n Do not mix more grout than can be applied within the pot life of the material
n At temperature above +40ºC, creep of the cured grout may become significant.
n Anchoring strength depends on: Strength of substrate, resin embedded length, hole preparation, steel bar type and diameter.

Embedment Depths for Reinforcing Steel
The tensile load capacity data has been embedment has been based on 9 times bar diameter. Some design codes require higher embedment depth. Load capacity is dependent on fully bonded depth. The load factors shown on the opposite table may be fully used when the bars are to be installed at bond lengths other than 9 times bar diameter (d).
Wear protective gloves and goggles during application. This product contains chemicals which may be potentially harmful to your health if not used properly. It is strongly recommended to read the material safety data sheets for proper storage and to observe precautions.
If contact with skin or eyes happen, use resin cream to remove it from skin followed by clean water, do not use solvent. In case of contact with eyes, use clean water and seek medical consultation.
