USP Structural Connectors has announced a new line of five high-performance epoxy anchoring solutions, applicable to heavy-industrial seismic and wind projects as well as everyday household needs.
“USP Structural Connectors has a long history of epoxy engineering and development dating back to its Covert Injectable Adhesives product line," said Marty Ruch, who led the product development for the epoxy line. "These new formulations are leading edge and developed to meet future job site and code requirements. We couldn’t be more proud of this exceptional line of epoxy, and we firmly believe we now offer industry-leading stand-out solutions in every category."
The line includes CIA-GEL 7000-C, designed for tension and shear loads due to wind or earthquake. It can attach anchor bolts to concrete that is (or may become) cracked.
CIA-GEL 7000 Masonry-Approved Epoxy can attach anchor bolts into fully grouted conrete masonry units. It can stand up to seismic, sustained load, elevated temperature and freeze-thaw conditions.
CIA-GEL 6000-GP General Purpose Quick Cure Epoxy is the collection's general-purpose solution, designed for applications that require quick load times and for doweling applications that require state DOT approval. It has a working time of 20 minutes at
CIA-EA Epoxy Acrylate Structural Adhesive features a high-strength, fast-cure formula designed to anchor threaded rod and deformed rebar into uncracked concrete.
Last but not least, Miracle Bond can be used as a bonding agent for nearly all household materials, including wood, steel, concrete, brick, stone and CMU block.
