ET-HP® is a two-component, high-solids epoxy system for use as a high-strength, non-shrink anchor grouting material. Resin and hardener are dispensed and mixed simultaneously through the mixing nozzle.
Note: The ET product has been renamed ET-HP to highlight the addition of testing in accordance with AC308 and performance data being presented in Strength Design format. No formulation or manufacturing changes have been made to the product.

- Code-listed under the current IBC/IRC for cracked and uncracked concrete per ICC-ES ESR-3372
- Code-listed under the current IBC/IRC for masonry per IAPMO UES ER-241
- Suitable for use under static and seismic loading conditions in cracked and uncracked concrete
- Cure times: 24 hours at 80°F, 72 hours at 50°F
- Easy hole-cleaning procedure – no power brushing required
- Suitable for use in damp or wet anchor sites
- When properly mixed, adhesive will be a uniform gray color
- Available in 22 oz. and 56 oz. cartridges for application versatility
- Made in the USA
- Threaded rod and rebar doweling into concrete and masonry
- Suitable for horizontal, vertical and overhead applications
Surfaces to receive epoxy must be clean. For installations in or through standing water, see Supplemental Topics for Adhesive Anchors for details. The base material temperature must be 40°F or above at the time of installation. For best results, material should be 70°F – 80°F 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 a 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 40°F or above.
Anchoring adhesive shall be a two-component high solids epoxy based system supplied in manufacturer’s standard side-by-side cartridge and dispensed through a static-mixing nozzle supplied by the manufacturer. Epoxy shall meet the minimum requirements of ASTM C-881 specification for Type I, II, IV, and V, Grade 3, Class B and C, except gel time, and must develop a minimum 13,390 psi compressive yield strength after 7 day cure. Epoxy must have a heat deflection temperature of a minimum 168°F (76°C). Adhesive shall be ET-HP® adhesive from Simpson Strong-Tie, Pleasanton, CA. Anchors shall be installed per Simpson Strong-Tie instructions for ET-HP® adhesive.
24 months from date of manufacture in unopened container.
For best results store between 45°F – 90°F. To store partially used cartridges, leave hardened nozzle in place. To re-use, attach new nozzle.
