Navigating Anchoring Epoxy


If you have that loose rail, loose brick or even a void in your concrete porch or stairs the Sakrete anchoring epoxy can be used for either an indoor or outdoor repair, and we’re here to help. Even If you’re looking to securely anchor thread bar or rebar into concrete or masonry surfaces, we’ve got the heavy-duty, easy-to-use epoxy you need.

If time is of the essence but you cannot sacrifice strength, look to Sakrete Rapid Setting Anchoring Epoxy:

    Rick, you are very welcome. Unfortunately ours only comes in grey. I am not sure if there is a company out there that offers a variety of colors. But it would not hurt to do Google search.

    Lee thanks much for your advice. I would like to color match. What products does Sakrete have available, or what advice can you offer?

    Rick, the Epoxy would not stay. It would sag out of an overhead joint. You could use the Fast Setting Cement Patcher modified with the Sakrete Bonder & fortifier. Mix it a little stiff by holding out some of the liquid needed. This will cause the material to go off a little quicker so that you do not have to keep pushing it into place.

    I need to patch a crack in a vertical surface that is above my head. Should I choose anchoring epoxy over anchoring cement? The depth is about 1" max. It seems injecting the epoxy would work better than pushing on cement to fill the crack. The plan is to drill the surface and set a bolt for storm shutters in the newly formed material.

    DAve S, we do not have a product that would work for that application. We are not sure that the Epoxy will hold up to those conditions.

    I want to Anchor a dock on a lake. Will the epoxy cure if it is occasionally washed over by waves during the curing time. Also would submersion in water affect the epoxy once it is cured?

    Joe B, unfortunately we do no sell just the mixing nozzles. If I finish using the material l and there is unmixed epoxy in the tube, I put the original stopper back in the same way it came out and store it with my other tubes. On my next job, I attach the new nozzle to the old tube until it is empty and then finish using the new tube until the job is complete. If I have material left in that tube then I do the same thing, replace the original stopper the same way it came out and store it for the next job.

    Very hard to find additional mixing nozzles for the anchoring epoxy
