There are many adhesive anchoring system manufacturers with ICBO ES Reports
listing good capacities for reinforcing bars embeded into concrete.  Tension
values listed in the reports have safety factors typically ranging from 4:1 to
5.33:1, but can be higher under certain circumstances.  

For example, in ICBO ER 4846, the Covert Operations CIA-Gel 7000 epoxy
anchoring system shows a #5 bar with 5 5/8" embedment in 2000 psi concrete to
have an allowable capacity of 4870 pounds.  The ultimate capacity of this
anchor is 19480 pounds with only 9 diameters of embedment; above the yield for
a grade 60 #5 which is 18600 pounds.  This performance is typical for our
product, and shown for #3-#10 bars in our ICBO Report.
