SET-XP® is a 1:1 two-component, high-solids, epoxy-based anchoring adhesive formulated for optimum performance in both cracked and uncracked concrete. SET-XP® adhesive has been rigorously tested in accordance with ICC-ES AC308 and 2009 IBC requirements and has proven to offer increased reliability in the most adverse conditions, including performance in cracked concrete under static and seismic loading. SET-XP® adhesive is teal in color in order to be identified as a high-performance adhesive for adverse conditions. Resin and hardener are dispensed and mixed simultaneously through the mixing nozzle. SET-XP® adhesive exceeds the ASTM C 881 specification for Type I and Type IV, Grade 3, Class C epoxy.
When SET-XP® adhesive is used with all threaded rod or rebar, the system can be used in tension and seismic zones where there is a risk of cracks occurring that pass through the anchor location. It is also suitable for uncracked concrete conditions.
Surfaces to receive epoxy must be clean. The base-material temperature must be 50º F or above at the time of installation. For best results, material should be 70–80º 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 40º 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. The adhesive anchor shall have been tested and qualified for performance in cracked and uncracked concrete per ICC-ES AC308. Adhesive shall be SET-XP® adhesive from Simpson Strong-Tie, Pleasanton, CA. Anchors shall be installed per Simpson Strong-Tie instructions for SET-XP epoxy adhesive.
24 months from date of manufacture in unopened sideby-side cartridge.
For best results, store between 45–90° F. To store partially used cartridges, leave hardened nozzle in place. To re-use, attach new nozzle.
