Description PC Concrete™epoxy gel is an anchoring and concrete repair product. PC Concrete™ is formulated for anchoring threaded rods, bolts, rebar dowels and
smooth dowels into concrete, grout filled block, and unreinforced masonry. PC Concrete™has exceptional strength, maximum field reliability, along with a high heat deflection temperature of 134°F, which provides engineers and contractors with a choice for specifying and setting adhesive anchors in elevated temperature environments.
PC Concrete™ is excellent for filling and repair cracks in concrete. PC Concrete™ out performs all caulks and hydraulic cement. PC Concrete™ will not come loose from any cleaned concrete surface. PC Concrete™ will hold during expansion and contraction of concrete. PC Concrete™ the best solution for permanent concrete repair.
PC Concrete™ is a two component (1:1 ratio), 100% solids, high modulus, and structural epoxy gel. It is a solvent free, no odor, high strength, moisture-insensitive epoxy. In addition, PC Concrete™has a long working time (20 minutes at 75°F.), while providing a bolt down/paint time in as little as 4 hours.
Job site preparation and work flow – to achieve the desired results, carefully follow these procedures!
• Always be sure the hole/crack is prepared in advance before starting a new cartridge. If at all possible, schedule dispensing to consume an entire cartridge at one time with no interruption of epoxy flow.
To achieve maximum flow and reduce fatigue, break off the nozzle to the largest diameter that will fit into the hole/crack or screen. If the hole is 5/8” diameter or larger, snap off the smaller diameter section before using.
Most nozzles snap off to accommodate varying hole diameters and depths.
Hole/crack preparation and cartridge set up:
I. Drill hole to proper diameter and depth. Blow out dust from the bottom of the hole/crack. Brush the hole/crack with a nylon brush. Blow out dust again. The hole/crack should be clean of dust and debris.
II. Insert cartridge into dispenser making sure it is properly positioned with shoulder of cartridge flush with top bracket of the dispenser.
III. Remove plastic cap from the tip of the cartridge. Dispense a small amount of epoxy into a disposable container until you get an even flow of black and white material.
IV. Place nozzle onto cartridge and slide nut over nozzle and thread nut onto cartridge. No nut is necessary on mixers with built in nut. Make sure that the nozzle, nut and cartridge assembly is secure. Dispense enough epoxy into a disposable container until the color becomes a consistent gray with no streaks.
Anchoring Into Hollow Block or Unreinforced Masonry (Repeat steps I through IV as shown above).
V. Insert the mixing nozzle into the bottom of the screen and completely fill while withdrawing the nozzle. Fill the screen completely all the way to the end to insure that the epoxy completely fills the screen from top to bottom when threaded rod is inserted.
VI. Insert the epoxy-filled screen into the hole.
VII. Insert the threaded rod or dowel to the bottom of the screen while turning clockwise. The threaded rod or rebar should be free of dirt, grease, oil or other foreign material. Do not disturb or bolt-up until minimum bolt-up time has passed.
BUG Unit 102 oz Mixing: Thoroughly stir the contents of each pail before pouring and mixing the two components together. Pour part B(dark gray) into Part A (white) container. Use an electric drill and mixing paddle to thoroughly mix the two components together. Mix until the entire contents are a consistent gray color. If mixing less than entire container, remove equal parts of part A and part B and thoroughly mix on a flat surface until a consistent gray color is achieved. Minimum mix time is 2-4 minutes
Tools and equipment may be cleaned with denatured alcohol, xylene or aromatic solvents
After cure: Paint, Drill, Machine, Sand, File, Tap, or Saw.
As Adhesive: Wood, Metal (all types), Glass, Brick, Block, Rubber, Concrete, Stone, Slate, Fiberglass, tile, and more in any and all combinations.
