RE: MASONRY: Epoxy Adhesive Embedment into Grouted Cells

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Bill,

Simpson makes an epoxy adhesive.  I think it is “ET Epoxy-Tie Adhesive”.  Actually, I’m looking at it real quick as I am going out the door as soon as I finish this reply.  It appears to have tension and shear values for rebar in grout filled block.  The values aren’t very high though. If you require published values, you may want to spec the Simpson adhesive.

Yeah, I saw those values for threaded rod and “other items,” but steel reinforcement is pointedly missing from the tables. My concern is that issues like pullout and edge distance will be different for rebar than for threaded rod et al.

Bill,

Check out Tables 9 & 13 of the report that you referenced (ER-5193).
