Implant Adhesive Implementation
- Drill a hole 1/16 to 1/4 inch larger than the diameter of the threaded rod or railing you are setting.
TIP: the hole depth should be a minimum of 4 1/2 times the diameter of the bolt (a 1/2 inch threaded rod would require a hole depth of 2 1/4 inches).
NOTE: for heavy duty applications that are subjected to heavy loads or vibration, it is recommended that the depth of the hole be increased to a minimum of 9 times the diameter of the treaded rod (a 1/2 inch treaded rod would require a depth of 4 1/2 inches).
- Blow out the dust from the bottom of the hole using cans of compressed air.
- Remove any remaining debris from the hole using a nylon brush. Rotate the bush a quarter of a turn as it is removed from the hole. Use the compressed air to remove any remaining dust after brushing.
- Insert the anchoring epoxy cartridge into the caulk gun.
TIP: it is highly recommended that a high quality, high strength dispensing gun be used because of the significant amount of force required to dispense the two part epoxy through the static mixer nozzle.
- Remove the plastic cap from the tip of the cartridge.
- Dispense a small amount of epoxy into a disposable container until you get an even flow of both the black and white material.
- Attach the static mixer nozzle on to the cartridge and dispense enough epoxy into the disposable container until a consistent gray color is achieved with no streaks.
- Place the tip of the dispensing nozzle into the bottom of the hole and fill the hole about 5/8 full while slowly withdrawing the nozzle.
- Insert the treaded rod or rebar to the bottom of the hole while turning clockwise.
- Remove any excess epoxy from around the hole with a putty knife or piece of cardboard.
- Leave the anchor un-disturbed until the cure time has passed.
- Remove and discard the static mixer nozzle and replace the cartridge cap.
