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.
