Araldite Anchorbond when submerged for 12 months in test reagent was unaffected by the following chemicals
Skydrol 500 A (Hydraulic fluid)
Grouting may be carried .out at ambient temperatures between 69 C and 30s C.
The cured grout is completely resistant to frost and extreme sub-zero temperatures. Continuous exposure to load at temperatures above 45s C
should be avoided.
Huntsman should be contacted for advice prior to specification if higher temperatures are anticipated.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
The concrete structure must be solid and strong enough for the intended load.
Optimum performance of Araldite Anchorbond requires the formation of a mechanical fixing through chemical hardening of the grout. Holes must therefore provide a mechanical key.
Drilled holes should be prepared by a rotary percussive drill with air or water flush.
Diamond drilled holes must be under-reamed.
Cast in holes must be of inverse dovetail configuration. If parallel sided holes are cast they should be rough to provide adequate keying.
However formed, the hole must be clean and free from dust, grease or dirt.
All bars should be degreased and all flakey rust removed.
Mechanical mixing of resin based materials is preferred whenever possible.
In order to avoid trapping air in the material, mixers running at less than 400 rpm are recommended. For small quantities, manual mixing is acceptable.
Araldite Anchorbond is supplied in 3 pre-weighed packs of exact proportions. No other materials should be added. Stir the contents of each tin
Pour the entire contents of the hardener into the resin and mix until uniform. Slowly add the graded filler and mix until fully blended.
Araldite Anchorbond P may then be poured into the hole.
Araldite Anchorbond T should be pumped into the hole starting from its deepest part and working backwards to avoid trapping any air. Due to its
thixotropic nature, it will not run out even, from overhead cavities. The steel bar should then be worked into the grout and fixed in place until
hardening is complete. Ensure placing and fixing is completed within the pot life of the mixed batch.
Allow the grout to fully harden before applying load.
Shelf life of 12 months minimum if stored below 25s C.
Keep uncured epoxy materials away from the mouth, food or drink.
Do not use empty tins to store food even if they appear to have been cleaned. Always wear gloves or barrier cream when handling uncured epoxy materials. Clean any splashes or smears from the skin immediately using warm water and soap. Avoid inhaling vapour. Do not use below 59 C.
