Richard, There is good literature on epoxy anchor bolts. Hilti is one of the better choices. The Army Corps of Engrs. performed some good studies on epoxy anchor bolts out of their Vicksburg facility. The critical ingredient is obviously the epoxy. Specify a moisture insensitive epoxy. Longevity should not be a problem. Regards, Harold Sprague Black & Veatch ---------- From: rlewis(--nospam--at)techteam.org To: seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org Subject: BOLT- Epoxy Anchors Date: Monday, October 20, 1997 1:24PM I haven't seen much in the way of published literature on this subject so I want to pose the question to the list server. I am considering using epoxy anchor like Hilti's HVA Adhesive System anchors. The Contractor on one of my projects missed one of the column anchor bolt location by about 9 inches. Not much to do now except drill in new anchors. My question concerns the longevity and proposed application of epoxy anchors. How long are they expected to last. Specifically, my column is located outside the building and wrapped in masonry. It will be exposed to the seasonal temperature variations of Dallas, TX. Does normal seasonal temperature variation affect the anchor bond? Are there published limitations to the use of epoxy anchors? __________________________________________________ Richard Lewis, P.E.
