SET-3G is the latest innovation in epoxy anchoring adhesives with high design strength and proven performance. SET-3G is a 1:1 ratio, two-component, anchoring adhesive for concrete (cracked and uncracked). SET-3G installs and performs in a variety of environmental conditions and temperature extremes.
- Exceptional performance — superior bond strengths permit ductile solutions in high seismic areas.
- Design flexibility — improved sustained load performance at elevated temperature.
- Jobsite versatility — can be specified for all base material conditions when in-service temperatures range from -40°F (-40°C) to 176°F (80°C).
- Recognized per ICC ES AC308 for post-installed rebar development and splice length design provisions.
- Approved for installation with multiple vacuum-drill bit systems without further hole cleaning. See Code Report (ESR-4057) and Engineering Letter for approved systems.
- Wire brush hole-cleaning system for conventional blow-brush-blow cleaning method for anchoring.
- With higher bond strengths, ductile solutions can often be achieved with SET-3G in high seismic areas.
- Low-odor formulation.
- Manufactured in the USA using global materials.
- During the installation of SET-3G, when the correct installation processes are followed, there is no performance difference between water-saturated concrete, water-filled holes, or submerged concrete.
- For use with potable water.

- 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
- 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.
- For full instructions, see Adhesive Anchoring Installation Instructions.
- SET-3G has been tested in accordance with ICC-ES AC308, ACI 355.4 and applicable ASTM test methods.
|Gel Time (mins.)||Cure Time (hrs.)|
|1. For SI: 1°F = (°C x 9/5) + 32. |
2. For water-saturated concrete, water-filled holes and submerged concrete, 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).
