    Answer This Question

    A:  Yes, but I would add rubber washers to reduce vibration. I would also add loctite and lock washers. Make sure to blow out the hole in the concrete prior to installation.

      A:  Probably not without some kind of fastener. This is to cement bolts & rebar in concrete holes.

      Q:Approximately what is the number of anchor bolts this cartridge work for. 5/8 Bolts set at 2.5 inches deep in concrete
      by|Mar 23, 2019
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  I set 12 pieces of 1/2” rebar 14” deep per cartridge. You should get a couple of dozen bolts. However, you only get two (one use) nozzles. If you stop, the adhesive will harden in the nozzle.

      Q:Is this still a 2 part epoxy? Does the single tube have two separate compartments, one for both epoxy parts?
      by|Oct 22, 2018

      Answer This Question

      A:  It is a 2-part epoxy - the cartridge is a tube-within-a-tube design. This product needs a heavy-duty caulking gun with a high-drive ratio feed, like a Cox 41004-2T High Thrust or 41004-XT Extra Thrust. A common Chinese cheapo light weight caulking gun is likely to break before the cartridge is fully dispensed.

          Q:Can this be used for wood to metal glueing? Thanks
          by|Sep 7, 2018

          Answer This Question

          A:  I have used this for metal to metal with success however, not in a load baring situation.

          by|Dec 11, 2018

          A:  I strongly against it as the bond this material makes is quite brittle.

          Q:I am going to be using this to bond rebar to an existing footer and need to make sure this product will not shrink once cured. Can you please confirm?
          by|Aug 27, 2018
          4 Answers
          Answer This Question

          A:  Yes it is designed to permanently bond rebar to concrete. I have not seen any shrinkage.

          by|Mar 12, 2020

          A:  If the holes for the rebar are close to the rebar's diameter, you should have no problem at all. This epoxy will shrink a tiny bit. I use this material to fill 1-1/2" x 5" deep holes to replace severely rusted studs that anchored a diving board. When my 1-1/2 holes with new stainless 1/2" all-thread rods were full to flush with the concrete deck, after the epoxy had cured overnight, there was a conspicuous dip (maybe a tablespoon of volume) where it had been level; there was a small about of shrinkage. Because I had to drill out the existing steel studs with a core drill, these holes were extraordinarily large, much larger stud to hole size ratio than you would normally find. TIP: Take care to carefully fill the hole with epoxy from bottom to top as to not form any air pockets or bubbles. These will do much more harm to bond strength than the epoxy's tiny shrinkage. Simpson has some accessory hole filling plugs that permit you to fill a horizontal hole from bottom to top w/o creating air pockets.

          by|May 6, 2023

          A:  This material will not shrink when cured in my experience. It maintained it's dimensions in a variety of materials.

          by|May 6, 2023

          A:  will work for bonding/anchoring rebar to existing concrete

          Answer This Question

          A:  I have anchored as many as 10, 1/2" anchors, only 5" or 6" depth.

          A:  More information would be needed to determine this - what size anchor, what size hole, hole depth. Please contact the Engineering Support Department at your regional Simpson Strong-Tie branch for further assistance - 800/999-5099. Thank you!

            Q:Does this adhere to wood?
            by|May 2, 2018
            2 Answers
            Answer This Question

            A:  Epoxy will adhere to wood, but this is not a tested/rated application. Thank you!

            by|May 5, 2023

              A:  Yes, but I strongly do not recommend it. The cured epoxy is completely inflexible and brittle. Wood tends to have some give and flex, as well as expanding/contracting with the temperature and humidity.
