Post-Installed Anchorage

Strong Frame Ordinary Moment Frame

Simpson Strong‑Tie offers multiple adhesive and mechanical anchor options for post‑installed anchorage in hardened concrete. The products below are referenced in the Wall Bracing tables.

SET‑XP™ Anchoring Adhesive

SET-XP is a two-component, 1:1 ratio, high-solids epoxy‑based anchoring adhesive formulated for optimum performance in both cracked and uncracked concrete. SET‑XP adhesive has been rigorously tested in accordance with ICC‑ES AC308 and 2006 IBC requirements and has proven to offer increased reliability in the most adverse conditions, including performance in cracked concrete under static and seismic loading. SET‑XP adhesive is teal in color in order to be identified as a high performance adhesive for adverse conditions. Resin and hardener are dispensed and mixed simultaneously through the mixing nozzle.

When SET‑XP™ adhesive is used with the IXP™ anchor, all thread rod, or rebar, the system can be used in tension and seismic zones where there is a risk of cracks occurring that pass through the anchor location. It is also suitable for uncracked-concrete conditions.

Formulated for use in all types of weather, AT is designed to dispense easily and cure at temperatures down to 0°F. Resin and initiator are dispensed and mixed simultaneously through the mixing nozzle. AT meets the physical requirements of ASTM C881, Type I and IV, Grade 3, Classes A, B and C, except Acrylic‑Tie is a non‑epoxy product formulated for fast cure time.

Titen HD® Heavy Duty Screw Anchor

The Titen HD anchor is a patented, high‑strength screw anchor for concrete and masonry. It is designed for optimum performance in both cracked and uncracked concrete; a requirement that the 2006 IBC places on post‑installed anchors. The high strength, easy-to-install Titen HD anchor has been tested and shown to provide outstanding performance in cracked and uncracked concrete under both static and seismic-loading conditions. The self undercutting, non‑expansion characteristics of the Titen HD anchor make it ideal for structural applications, even at reduced edge distances and spacings. Recommended for permanent dry, interior non‑corrosive environments or temporary outdoor applications.

Codes: ICC‑ES ESR-2713 (concrete); ICC‑ES ESR-1056 (CMU); City of L.A. RR25741 (concrete); City of L.A. RR25560 (CMU); Florida FL11506.7; Factory Mutual 3017082.
