In their own words
The lessons we learnt today were:
“My take away is not cleaning the dust out of the holes prior to chemset like they recommend in installation guide can severely reduce pullout capacity.”
“My takeaway was if post installing an anchor into a much larger hole, the pure epoxy blends can be used over 2x bar diameter.”
“My takeaway is that where coring is used for holes 101 grade chemset is not recommended as it relies on a somewhat physical bond to achieve its documented capacity. This cannot occur with smooth sides associated with coring.”
“I didn’t know that the installation can impact the load capacity that much and also that chemsets can be used in flooded holes, even underwater.”
