SET® is a two-component, 1:1 ratio, high-solids, epoxy-based adhesive for use as a high strength, non-shrink anchor grouting material. Resin and hardener are dispensed and mixed simultaneously through the mixing nozzle. SET meets or exceeds the requirements of ASTM C-881 specification for Type I, II, IV and V, Grade 3, Class B and C.
- Threaded-rod anchoring
- Rebar doweling
- Bonding hardened concrete to hardened concrete
- Pick-proof sealant around doors, windows and fixtures
- Paste-over for crack injection
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°–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 cartridge and dispensed through a staticmixing 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 and must develop a minimum 12,650 psi compressive yield strength after 7 day cure. Epoxy must have a heat deflection temperature of a minimum 136°F (58°C). Adhesive shall be SET adhesive from Simpson Strong-Tie, Pleasanton, CA. Anchors shall be installed per Simpson Strong-Tie instructions for SET adhesive.
24 months from date of manufacture in unopened sideby- side cartridge.
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.
