Description Ozone Epofix is a two-component epoxy anchoring grout supplied in pre-measured quantities. The material cures quickly to give consistent, high-performance anchorages. The two versions of Ozone Epofix are available.
Pourable grade use in vertical down holes where the hole is 8 to 40 mm greater in diameter than the bar. Thixotropic grade use in overhead or horizontal holes where the hole is up to 25 mm greater in diameter than the bar. The thixotropic nature of Ozone Epofix reduces flow of grout out of the hole.
Primary Applications Ozone Epofix mix and place anchoring grouts are used for anchoring of steel bars into concrete, brickwork, masonry and rock.
Recommended applications include:
Installation of starter bars.
Base plate bolts.
MOT Bolts.
Installation of balustrades.
Installation of barriers and safety fences.
Installation of tie bars.
Advantages Low creep characteristics under sustained loading.
Vibration resistant.
Non-shrink and hence ensures complete surface contact and bond.
High compressive, tensile and flexural strengths.
Fast convenient installation with rapid strength gain.
Increase flowability.
Two grades.

Hole preparation and formation: Optimum performance of Ozone Epofix grouts requires rough sided, dust-free holes. Use of rotary percussive drills with air or water flushing is recommended. Diamond drilled holes should be under-reamed or the surface roughened with a drill steel. Cast holes should preferably be of inverse dovetail configuration. If parallel-sided holes are cast they should be rough to provide adequate keying.

Bar preparation: All bars should be deformed. They should preferably be degreased and all flaky rust removed.
Mixing: A complete pack of resin and catalyzed filler should be mixed in one operation. Mixing may be carried out manually or mechanically. When a smooth, even consistency is achieved the grout is ready for use and should be placed well within the gel time of the grout. Packs have been designed to produce practical and economic volumes of grout.
Do not attempt to mix partial pack components.
Pouring: The mixed grout should be poured steadily from one side only to eliminate the entrapment of air. Continuous grout flow is essential. Sufficient grout must be available prior to starting. The time taken to pour a batch should be regulated to the time taken to prepare the next batch. To pour a batch should be regulated to the time taken to prepare the next batch.
Consumption: Volume of Ozone Epofix required in ml for each 100 mm of bond length.
(200 mm bond length is the minimum recommended.)

These figures allow for a 25% wastage factor.

Cleaning & Disposal All tools and equipment should be cleaned immediately after use with Ozone Solvent .
Precautions & Limitations Keep away from sources of ignition – no smoking. In the event of fire extinguish with CO2 or foam.
Health & safety In common with most epoxy resin systems, the Ozone Epofix range will react exothermically when mixed and left in bulk. The heat generated may be excessive and can lead to vapour emission and splash damage to adjacent. To reduce the risk of exotherm, these products should only be mixed when ready for use and then applied without delay. Any unused residue should be poured onto a disposable impervious surface, in a well-ventilated area, to allow cure before disposal.
