CIA-GEL 7000-C Cracked Concrete Epoxy

CIA-GEL 7000-C Epoxy is an adhesive designed to attach anchor rods into concrete that is, or may become, cracked due to cyclic loading from wind or earthquakes. It is a low odor, solvent-free, non-shrink, non-sag adhesive. The two-component (resin and hardener) epoxy is supplied in equal volume cartridges, which are combined in a 1:1 ratio when dispensed through the attached mixing nozzle. Either a hand-powered or air-powered dispenser may be used. The cartridges are sealed with a D-plug which opens easily on the jobsite and allows partially used cartridges to be saved for later use. The epoxy has a two year shelf life when stored in unopened containers at temperatures between 10°C/50°F and 25°C/77°F.

Features

  • Designed for tension and shear loads due to wind or earthquake (Seismic Design Category C – F)
  • High Strength: ¾” ø anchor with 9-3/8″ embedment has a seismic LRFD tension capacity of 10,000 lbs in cracked concrete (A193 B7 threaded rod in 15″ deep foundation located away from edge, f’c = 2,500 psi)
  • 15 minute gel time and 8 hour cure time (between 59°F to 72°F) provides convenient installation
  • Use with threaded steel rod or deformed rebar
  • Can be installed in dry, saturated or water filled holes
  • No shrinkage
  • Can also be used for horizontal and overhead installations (max size 1-¼” rod or #10 rebar)
  • Easy to dispense
  • MXDA free (Meta-xylenediamine) and VOC free (volatile organic compounds)

Applications

  • Anchors threaded rod or deformed rebar into concrete or uncracked concrete
  • Anchoring All Thread Rod for holdowns into concrete for high seismic zones (SDC C-F) 
  • Horizontal and overhead anchoring applications (required special inspection)
