Sikadur® AnchorFix-1
High performance, two component adhesive anchoring system

Description

Sikadur® AnchorFix-1 adhesive anchoring system has been specially formulated as a high-performance, two component adhesive anchor system for threaded and reinforcing bars in uncracked concrete.

Where to Use

  • Uncracked concrete
  • Hard natural stone
  • Solid rock
  • Solid masonry

Advantages

  • Fixing close to free edges.
  • Versatile range of embedment depths.
  • Anchoring without expansion forces.
  • Component volume ratio of 10:1.
  • Extended working time.

Coverage

See Data Sheet.

Approvals

European Technical Approval (ETA) according to ETAG001-5 for threaded bars only.

How to Use

Application

  1. Drill the hole to the correct diameter and
  2. Thoroughly clean the hole in the following sequence using the 2K DF Brush with the required extensions and a source of clean compressed air. For holes of 15 3/4" (400mm) or less deep, a 2K Blow Pump may be used: Blow Clean x2. Brush Clean x2. Blow Clean x2. Brush Clean x2. Blow Clean x2.
  3. depth. This can be done with either a rotary percussion or rotary machine depending upon the substrate.
  4. Select the appropriate static mixer nozzle for the installation, open the cartridge/foil and screw onto the mouth of the cartridge. Insert the cartridge into a good quality applicator.
  5. Extrude the first part of the cartridge to waste until an even color has been achieved without streaking in the resin.
  6. If necessary, cut the extension tube to the depth of the hole and push onto the end of the mixer nozzle, and (for rebars 5/8" (16mm) dia. or more) fit the correct resin stopper to the other end. Attach extension tubing and resin stopper.
  7. Insert the mixer nozzle (resin stopper /exten- sion tube if applicable) to the bottom of the hole. Begin to extrude the resin and slowly withdraw the mixer nozzle from the hole ensuring that there are no air voids as the mixer nozzle is withdrawn. Fill the hole to approximately ½ to ¾ full and withdraw the nozzle completely.
  8. Insert the clean threaded bar, free from oil or other release agents, to the bottom of the hole using a back and forth twisting motion ensuring all the threads are thoroughly coated. Adjust to the correct position within the stated working time (see table on page 1).
  9. Any excess resin should be expelled from the hole evenly around the steel element showing that the hole is full. This excess resin should be removed from around the mouth of the hole before it sets.
  10. Leave the anchor to cure. Do not disturb the anchor until the appropriate loading/curing time, on page 1, has elapsed depending on the substrate conditions and ambient temperature.
  11. Attach the fixture and tighten the nut to the recommended torque.

Do not overtighten. 

Hollow Substrate Installation Method

  1. Drill the hole to the correct diameter and depth. This should be done with a rotary percussion drilling machine to reduce spalling.
  2. Thoroughly clean the hole in the following sequence using a brush with the required extensions and a source of clean compressed air. For holes of 15 3/4" (400mm) or less deep, a blow pump may be used: Brush Clean x1. Blow Clean x1.
  3. Select the appropriate static mixer nozzle for the installation, open the cartridge/foil and screw onto the mouth of the cartridge. Insert the cartridge into a good quality applicator.
  4. Extrude the first part of the cartridge to waste until an even color has been achieved without streaking in the resin.
  5. Select the appropriate perforated sleeve and insert into the hole.
  6. Insert the mixer nozzle to the bottom of the perforated sleeve, withdraw 1/12" (2-3mm) then begin to extrude the resin and slowly withdraw the mixer nozzle from the hole en- suring that there are no air voids as the mixer nozzle is withdrawn. Fill the perforated sleeve completely and remove the mixer nozzle and cartridge completely.
  7. Insert the clean threaded bar, free from oil or other release agents, to the bottom of the hole using a back and forth twisting motion ensuring all the threads are thoroughly coated. Adjust to the correct position within the stated working time (see table on page 1).
  8. Any excess resin should be expelled from the hole evenly around the steel element showing that the hole is full. This excess resin should be removed from around the mouth of the hole before it sets.
  9. Leave the anchor to cure. Do not disturb the anchor until the appropriate loading/curing time, on page 1, has elapsed depending on the substrate conditions and ambient temperature.
  10. Attach the fixture and tighten the nut to the recommended torque.

    Do not overtighten.
