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 long-term elevated temperature of 110°F (43°C) using optimized drill bit diameters
Tested and assessed in accordance with ICC-ES AC308 and ACI 355.4 for use in cracked and uncracked normal-weight and lightweight concrete
Design flexibility — can be specified for dry or water-saturated conditions when 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
Available in three cartridge configurations for maximum versatility — 8.5 oz. coaxial, 22 oz. side-by-side or 56 oz. side-by-side cartridges dispensed using manual, battery or pneumatic dispensing tools
1:1 ratio, two-component, high-strength, epoxy-based anchoring adhesive formula
SET-3G is code listed to work with the Speed Clean™ DXS dust extraction system. This cleaning system cuts out the dusty, time-consuming "blow-brush-blow" hole-cleaning process.
Automating dust removal also reduces the reliance on the installer to perform the cleaning process, thereby increasing the likelihood that anchors will be installed correctly.
Faster: One worker can drill faster and "clean" holes at the same time rather than having two people on the task
Safer: No more airborne dust shooting out of holes from cleaning with compressed air
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
When properly mixed, SET-3G will be a uniform gray color
Store between 45°F (7°C) and 90°F (32°C)
Two-year shelf-life for unopened cartridges stored between 45°F (7°C) and 90°F (32°C)
Volatile organic compound (VOC) — 1.9 g/L
Surfaces to receive epoxy must be clean.
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.
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 water-saturated concrete, the cure times must be doubled. 2. 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).
