Formulated to yield superior performance in threaded rod anchor and rebar dowel installations in cracked and uncracked concrete at elevated temperatures, the new SET-3G high-strength anchoring adhesive is the latest innovation in epoxy anchoring adhesives from Simpson Strong-Tie. In addition to providing exceptional bond strength with a cure time of just 24 hours, SET-3G adhesive has been proven to outperform other products on the market.
Application and Installation
The two-component, one-to-one-ratio, epoxy-based anchoring adhesive formula dispenses in a uniform gray color to match surrounding concrete surfaces, and can be easily installed in downward, horizontal, vertical and overhead orientations.
The versatile SET-3G adhesive is designed for dry or water-saturated use conditions with temperatures anywhere between –40°F (–40°C) and 176°F (80°C). The low-odor formula also offers contractors jobsite flexibility with its ability to be installed in dry, water-saturated or water-filled holes in base materials whose temperatures range from 40°F (4°C) to 100°F (38°C).
Available in three sizes, SET-3G adhesive has been thoroughly tested.
- Tested in accordance with ICC-ES Acceptance Criteria for Adhesive Anchors in Concrete Elements (AC308) and ACI 355.4 for use in cracked and uncracked normal-weight and lightweight concrete.
- Qualified for use in structures assigned to Seismic Design Categories A through F.
- Code listed to work with the Speed Clean™ DXS dust extraction system, which complies with updated OSHA Silica Dust Compliance Regulations to save time and keep workers safe from hazardous airborne dust.
