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 static 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 (21°C), 72 hours at 50°F (10°C)
  • 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. cartridges packaged either with or without nozzles and in 1-gallon, 10-gallon and 100-gallon kits for high-volume applications utilizing metering pumps
  • Manufactured in the USA using global materials
  • Tested per ACI 355.4 and AC308

Applications

  • Threaded rod anchoring and rebar doweling into concrete and unreinforced masonry
  • Suitable for horizontal, vertical and overhead applications
  • Multiple DOT listings

Product Includes

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

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 (10°C) or above at the time of installation. For best results, material should be 70°F (21°C) to 80°F (27°C) 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 or use microwave to facilitate warming.
  • Mixed material in nozzle can harden in 30 minutes at temperatures of 70°F (21°C) and above.
  • 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.
  • For full instructions, see Adhesive Anchoring Installation Instructions.

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).
