We know that there are several important steps in installing post-installed adhesive epoxy dowels. Many contractors fail to recognize that these important steps come packaged with the epoxy material. Whether it is Simpson, HILTI brand, etc., these steps are provided either on the package wrapping or in a mini pamphlet that comes with the adhesive epoxy. It is also important that each expiration date on the adhesive epoxy tube is verified and acceptable prior to adhesive epoxy installation.
It is crucial to verify the depth of each hole per approved plan prior to adhesive epoxy installation. It is also important that all holes be clean and free of debris prior to adhesive epoxy installation. Failure to do so can cause a deficient bond from the adhesive epoxy to the existing concrete for either rebar or anchors. This can put a structure’s soundness in jeopardy especially when it needs it the most during an earthquake, heavy wind or similar natural catastrophe. When epoxy is ready to be injected, it is important to check that epoxy is being mixed within the mixing tube appropriately. To verify this, a small portion should be primed out to confirm proper mixing. Once proper mixing is confirmed, epoxy can be injected into holes. Rods or rebar dowels should also be installed in a twisting motion to rid any voids and ensure an acceptable bond. This is why it is important to hire us here at Deputy Special Inspections Mission Viejo for all your post installed adhesive epoxy dowel needs!
