ET-HP® Epoxy Adhesive

ET-HP®

ET-HP® is a two-component, high-solids, epoxy-based system for use as a high-strength, non-shrink anchor-grouting material. Resin and hardener are dispensed and mixed simultaneously through the mixing nozzle. ET-HP® is formulated for anchoring threaded rod and rebar into concrete (cracked/uncracked) and masonry.

Key Features

  • Passed the demanding ICC-ES AC308 adverse-condition tests pertaining to elevated temperatures and long-term sustained loads
  • Code listed under the IBC/IRC for cracked and uncracked concrete per ICC-ES ESR-3372
  • Code listed under the IBC/IRC for masonry per IAPMO UES ER-241
  • Suitable for use under static and seismic loading conditions in cracked and uncracked concrete and masonry
  • Cure times: 24 hours at 70°F, 72 hours at 50°F
  • Easy hole-cleaning – no power-brushing required
  • Suitable for use in dry or water-saturated concrete
  • When properly mixed, adhesive will be a uniform gray color
  • Available in 22 oz. and 56 oz. cartridges for application versatility
  • Manufactured in the USA using global materials

Product Includes

ET-HP22-N – One EMN22i mixing nozzle and one nozzle extension are supplied with each cartridge.

Color

Resin – white, hardener – black. When properly mixed, ET-HP adhesive will be a uniform medium gray color.

Storage Conditions

For best results store between 45°F–90°F. To store partially used cartridges, leave hardened nozzle in place. To re-use, attach new nozzle.

Shelf Life

24 months from date of manufacture in unopened container

Installation

  • Surfaces to receive epoxy must be clean.
  • Base material temperature must be 50°F or above at the time of installation. For best results, material should be 70°–80°F at time of application.
  • To warm cold material, store cartridges in a warm, uniformly heated area or storage container. Do not immerse cartridges in water to facilitate warming.
  • Mixed material in nozzle can harden in 30 minutes at temperatures of 70°F and above.

Caution

  • The load tables list values based upon results from the most recent testing and may not reflect those in current code reports. Where code jurisdictions apply, consult the current reports for applicable load values.
  • Use only Simpson Strong-Tie® mixing nozzles in accordance with Simpson Strong-Tie instructions. Modification or improper use of mixing nozzle may impair ET-HP adhesive performance.

Clean Up

Uncured material — Wipe up with cotton cloths. If desired scrub area with abrasive, waterbased cleaner and flush with water. If approved, solvents such as ketones (MEK, acetone, etc.), lacquer thinner, or adhesive remover can be used. DO NOT USE SOLVENTS TO CLEAN ADHESIVE FROM SKIN. Take appropriate precautions when handling flammable solvents. Solvents may damage surfaces to which they are applied. Cured material: Chip or grind off surface.

Test Criteria

Anchors installed with ET-HP® adhesive have been tested in accordance with ICC-ES Acceptance Criteria for Post-Installed Adhesive Anchors in Masonry Elements (AC58) and Adhesive Anchors in Concrete Elements (AC308).
