Opti-Mesh Adhesive-Anchoring Screen Tubes 

Opti-Mesh Adhesive-Anchoring Screen Tubes

Screen tubes are vital to the performance of adhesive anchors in base materials that are hollow or contain voids, such as hollow block and brick. The Simpson Strong-Tie® Opti-Mesh screen tube provides the economical advantage of a plastic screen tube while providing performance comparable to steel screen tubes and better than competitive plastic screen tubes.

Key Features

The Simpson Strong-Tie Opti-Mesh screen features formula-specific mesh designed to control the flow of adhesive out of the screen. The result is uniform coverage of adhesive on the rod. The standard screen utilizes mesh which allows adhesive to flow freely out of the screen when the rod is inserted. Too much adhesive is pushed out of the screen, leaving a large portion of the rod unbonded. This unbonded rod will pull out of the screen at a much lower load than a rod installed with an Opti-Mesh screen.

Material

Plastic

Caution

Screen tubes are designed for a specific adhesive type. Epoxy screen tubes must be used with SET-XP®, ET-HP® or SET formulations, and acrylic adhesive screen tubes must be used with AT.
