Formulated specifically for transportation projects, EDOT™ is a two-component, high-solids epoxy system.
It is designed for use as a high-strength, nonshrink anchor grouting material providing an economical and high-strength solution for transportation applications. Resin and hardener are dispensed and mixed simultaneously through the static mixing nozzle. EDOT meets the requirements of ASTM C-881 and AASHTO M235 specifications for Type I, II, IV and V, Grade 3, Class C.
- Threaded rod anchoring
- Rebar doweling
Surfaces to receive epoxy must be clean. The base material temperature must be 40ºF or above at the time of installation. For best results, material should be 70ºF–80ºF at the time of application. Cartridges should not be immersed in water to facilitate warming. To warm cold material, the cartridges should be stored in warm, uniformly heated area or storage container for a sufficient time to allow epoxy to warm completely. Mixed material in nozzle can harden in 5-7 minutes at a temperature of 40ºF or above.
Anchoring adhesives shall be a twocomponent high solids epoxy based system dispensed through a static mixing nozzle supplied by the manufacturer. Epoxy shall meet the minimum requirements of ASTM C 881 and AASHTO M235 specification for Type I, II, IV, and V, Grade 3, Class C, and must develop a minimum 10,000 psi compressive yield strength after 7 day cure. Epoxy must have a heat deflection temperature of a minimum 125ºF (52ºC). Adhesive shall be EDOT adhesive from Simpson Strong-Tie, Pleasanton, CA. Anchors shall be installed per Simpson Strong-Tie instructions for EDOT adhesive.
24 months from date of manufacture in unopened container.
For best results, store between 45ºF–90ºF. To store partially used cartridges, leave hardened nozzle in place. To re-use, attach new nozzle.
