Holes and Bar Types – Holes should be drilled using rotary percussive drills with air or water flush. The drill bit should be of the integral type with an elliptical head. Holes which are diamond cored should be drilled with a rotary percussive non-flushing drill bit should be cleaned using a steel rotary brush. Loosened dust should be blown out of the hole using compressed air through an extension tube reaching to the bottom of the hole. Cast holes should taper so that the hole diameter is smaller at the mouth than the bottom.
Steel bars used for anchoring should be deformed such as those manufactured to BS 4449. Threaded bars may be used. When using smooth bars an extra safety factor should be incorporated into the anchor design.
Place part B of the Easiflow VP Grout into a plastic container or bucket. Whilst mixing, slowly add Part A and continue mixing until a uniform colour is achieved. Correct mix proportioning MUST be used to achieve the designed anchor strength.
Grout and Bar Placing – Place contents of resin can into plastic container or pail. Slowly add catalysed filler whilst mixing. Continue mixing until a uniform colour is achieved. Correct mix proportioning must be used to achieve the designed anchor strength. Pour mixed grout into prepared holes, rodding if necessary to ensure grout flows to the bottom of the hole. Once grout has been placed insert bar into hole and gently twist and press home to the required depth. The bar should be left undisturbed until the grout has hardened.
Equipment should be cleaned with Solvent prior to grout hardening.
