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.
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.

For consistent dispensing of anchoring adhesives in any installation orientation, the Simpson Strong-Tie® Adhesive Piston Plug Delivery System offers you an easy-to-use, more reliable and less time-consuming means to dispense adhesive into drilled holes for threaded rod and rebar dowel installations at overhead, upwardly inclined and horizontal orientations.
The matched tolerance design between the piston plug and drilled hole virtually eliminates the formation of voids and air pockets during adhesive dispensing.
Designing post-installed anchorage near a concrete edge is challenging, especially since the ACI provisions for cracked-concrete anchorage went into effect. In the following post, one of our field engineers, Jason Oakley, P.E., explains how SET-3G and Anchor Designer software from Simpson Strong-Tie make it easier to design a ductile anchor solution.Read More on the SE Blog
SET-3G is code listed under IBC/IRCfor cracked and uncracked concrete per ICC-ES ESR-4057. In March 2020, the evaluation report was updated for SET-3G to be an equivalent to cast-in-place reinforcing bars governed by ACI 318 and IBC Chapter 19.Download the Technical Bulletin
