MiTek today announced that its INCREDI-BOND product has joined MiTek Builder Products’ lineup of high-performance epoxy anchoring solutions, where MiTek offers epoxy solutions for use in a wide range of projects, from heavy-industrial seismic and wind applications to household projects.

INCREDI-BOND is a high-strength, two-component epoxy specifically designed to be a bonding agent for almost all household materials including wood, steel, concrete, brick, stone, and CMU block. INCREDI-BOND, which is moisture-insensitive, has a two-year shelf life when stored in unopened containers in dry conditions between 40°-95°F.

INCREDI-BOND offers over 1,000 psi bond strength in two days, a quick initial cure time of two hours at 75°F, and a convenient 20-minute working time. INCREDI-BOND’s non-sag formulation makes it an excellent epoxy for overhead patching and repairs. Plus, there’s easy tool clean up with M.E.K. or WD-40.

INCREDI-BOND joins these other MiTek epoxy solutions:

  • CIA-GEL 7000-C™, code-compliant epoxy designed for tension and shear loads due to wind or earthquake (Seismic Design Category C–F). CIA-GEL 7000-C is designed to attach anchor bolts into concrete that is, or may become, cracked due to cyclic loading from wind or earthquakes.
  • CIA-GEL 7000™, masonry-approved epoxy designed to attach anchor bolts into fully grouted concrete masonry units (CMU). CIA-GEL 7000 has ICC-ES AC58 approval for seismic, sustained load, elevated temperature, and freeze-thaw suitability conditions.
  • CIA-GEL 6000-GP™, general purpose, quick cure epoxy for general-purpose structural applications that require quick load times and for doweling applications that require state DOT approval.
  • CIA-EA™, epoxy acrylate structural adhesive for high-strength, fast-cure structural anchoring of threaded rod and deformed rebar into uncracked concrete.

To calculate how much epoxy is required on any job, MiTek now offers an Epoxy Quantity Estimator, available at this link.

“INCREDI-BOND joins our very strong epoxy product offering, where users can find an epoxy solution for virtually any projects, from industrial-grade commercial construction, to household uses. We really are a one-stop shop for high-quality epoxies for a wide range of applications,” said MiTek’s Marty Ruch.
