|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.
Installation of balustrades.
Installation of barriers and safety fences.
Installation of tie bars.
|Advantages||Low creep characteristics under sustained loading.
Non-shrink and hence ensures complete surface contact and bond.
High compressive, tensile and flexural strengths.
Fast convenient installation with rapid strength gain.
|Properties||The following results are typical for the hardened grout at 20°C.
|Storage||Store in dry and cool place below 35 C. Protect from direct sunlight.|
|Shelf life||12 months if stored properly in original unopened packaging.|
|Instruction for use||
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.
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.|
