Anchoring Bolts in Concrete

Featured Product: Anchor Cement


  • The concrete or masonry area to receive the anchoring bolt must be sound and capable of supporting the fixtures (minimum 3,000 psi).
  • Ensure the area is wide and deep enough to provide proper support.
  • Diameter of hole should be 3 to 4 times the diameter of the fixture being placed and the depth of the hole must be 8 to 12 times the fixtures diameter.
  • The area receiving the material should never be less than 2” deep and 2” wide.
  • A minimum clearance of 1” is required around the fixture being anchored and 4” from any edges.


  • Mix Anchor Cement according to the directions on the container.
  • This is a rapid setting product. Do not mix more material than can be placed in 10 minutes.
  • If mixing less than a full container, mix 4-parts Anchor Cement with 1-part water.


  • Pour the Anchor Cement into the cavity, filling it completely.
  • When used in an environment where the patch will get wet, overfill the hole slightly.
  • As the material begins to stiffen, gently slope the material so water moves away from the patch.

Anchor Cement will set to a very hardened state within twenty minutes.
