SET-3G is the latest innovation in epoxy anchoring adhesives from Simpson Strong-Tie. Formulated to provide superior performance in cracked and uncracked concrete at elevated temperatures, SET-3G installs and performs in a variety of environmental conditions and temperature extremes. The exceptional bond strength of SET-3G results in high design strengths.
Exceptional performance — superior bond-strength values at even long-term elevated temperature of 110°F (43°C) using optimized drill bit diameters
Tested in accordance with ICC-ES AC308 and ACI 355.4 for use in cracked and uncracked normal-weight and lightweight concrete
Code listed under IBC/IRC for cracked and uncracked concrete per ICC-ES ESR-4057
Code listed equivalent to cast-in-place reinforcing bars governed by ACI 318 and IBC Chapter 19
Design flexibility — can be specified for dry or water-saturated conditions when in-service temperatures range from -40°F (-40°C) to 176°F (80°C)
Jobsite versatility — can be installed in dry, water-saturated or water-filled holes in base materials with temperatures between 40°F (4°C) and 100°F (38°C)
Maximized production and safety — qualified for installation using the Speed Clean™ DXS dust extraction drilling system as an alternative to the conventional blow-brush-blow hole-cleaning method
Wire brush hole-cleaning system for conventional blow-brush-blow cleaning method for anchoring
Available in two cartridge configurations for maximum versatility — 8.5 oz. coaxial or 22 oz. side-by-side cartridges dispensed using manual, battery or pneumatic dispensing tools
With higher bond strengths, ductile solutions can often be achieved with SET-3G in high seismic areas
1:1 ratio, two-component, high-strength, epoxy-based anchoring adhesive formula
Two-year shelf life for unopened cartridges stored between 45°F (7°C) and 90°F (32°C)
When properly mixed, SET-3G will be a uniform gray color
Volatile organic compound (VOC) — 1.9 g/L
Manufactured in the USA using global materials
SET-3G code listed for installation with the Speed Clean™ DXS drill bits without any further cleaning (ICC-ES ESR-4057)
Threaded rod anchor and rebar dowel installations in cracked and uncracked concrete under a wide variety of environmental installation and use conditions
Installation in downward, horizontal and upwardly inclined (including overhead) orientations
Qualified for use in structures assigned to Seismic Design Categories A through F
SET3G22-N — One EMN21i mixing nozzle and one extension are supplied with each cartridge
SET3G10 — Two EMN22i mixing nozzles and two nozzle extensions are supplied with each cartridge
Surfaces to receive epoxy must be clean per approved hole cleaning method.
Base-material temperatures must be 40°F (4°C) or above at the time of installation. For best results, adhesive should be conditioned to a temperature between 70°F (21°C) and 80°F (37°C) at the time of installation.
To warm cold adhesive, 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 can harden in the dispensing nozzle within 30 minutes at 70°F (21°C).
Use only Simpson Strong-Tie mixing nozzles in accordance with Simpson Strong-Tie instructions. Modification or improper use of mixing nozzle may impair SET-3G adhesive performance.
1. For SI: 1°F = (°C x 9/5) + 32. 2. For water-saturated concrete and water-filled holes, the cure times should be doubled. 3. For installation of anchors in concrete where the temperature is below 70°F (21°C), the adhesive must be conditioned to a minimum temperature of 70°F (21°C).
Anchors installed with SET-3G adhesive have been tested in accordance with ICC-ES Acceptance Criteria for Adhesive Anchors in Concrete Elements (AC308).
* Material and curing conditions: 73 ± 2˚F, unless otherwise noted.
