Re: BOLT- Epoxy Anchors -Reply

I do not know if any real study has been made of this issue. But I would
assume that since steel conducts heat very well that the temperature will
be high for a large portion of the embedment depth.   If you are concerned
about this issue why not just use expansion bolts.  Or as a way to cover
all bases use both expansion bolts and epoxy anchors.  After all it was the
contractors mistake in the first place so why should you be the one to lose
sleep over this problem.
