We understand that there are important steps of installing post-installed adhesive epoxy dowels. Many contractor’s fail to realize that these important steps come packaged with the epoxy material that is stated in the approved plans. Whether it is Simpson or HILTI brand, these steps are provided either on the package wrapping or in a mini booklet that comes with the adhesive epoxy. It is also vital that each expiration date on the adhesive epoxy tube be verified and acceptable prior to adhesive epoxy installation.
It is important 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 lack of bonding 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 disaster. When epoxy is ready to be injected, it is important to check that epoxy is being mixed within the mixing tube. To verify this, a small portion should be discharged on a piece of trash to confirm proper mixing. Once 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 Inspection San Diego for all your post installed adhesive epoxy dowel needs!
