POLYESTER RESIN ANCHORING GROUT
EP 310 is a specialist anchoring grout which combines, outstanding durability and anchoring properties. This anchoring grout is stronger than the concrete. It is used for anchoring reinforcing bars, dowels, holding down bolts as well bedding, jointing and re-profiling concrete. It can be used where the hole and bar diameter is less than or equal to 25mm and also used to repair larger voids-where fast strength gain is important.
• Excellent strength
• Vibration resistance
• Resistance to heavy loads
• Corrosion resistance
• Easy to apply
The substrate must be hard, sound and free of dust and other barrier materials such as paint, lime coatings, plaster, curing agents, laitance, adhesive residues etc., which will inhibit adhesion to the substrate.
Use a suitable degreaser to remove polish, wax, grease, oil and similar contaminating substances prior to the application of EP 310.
NOTE: Any joints or cracks in the substrate where differential movement is anticipated e.g. movement joints, should be brought through to the finished surface.
The individual contents of the EP 310 should be thoroughly stirred before being mixed together. The entire contents of the Part A should be poured in to a larger mixing vessel to incorporate the Part B. Mix thoroughly for one minute using forced action. Ensure smooth mixing. Finally the Part B is added to the same container. The mixing of all the two should continue for further two minutes to create consistent homogenous mix.
The mixed material should be poured to the prepared substrate without delay. Bar should be fix into the hole immediately after the grout is poured, slight twisting action is required for full contact of grout to bar for maximum bonding.
NOTE: Do not overwork the surface and do not mix more than can be used within the working time. The work area should be protected during the installation process and during the initial curing time to ensure that no airborne debris can contaminate the surface of the wet resin as this will lead to unwanted blemishes in the hardened, and cured surface. All movement joints in the substrate must be carried through the EP 310 and properly sealed.
EP 310 should only be applied at temperatures above 10 C. Substrates should be dry and not affected by rising damp. Concrete or other cementitious substrates should have a surface tensile strength of at least 1.5 N/mm².
EP 310 may be applied to substrates of a lower strength, but the long-term performance may be impaired. Once the mixed material has exceeded its pot life, the viscosity and the characteristics of the product will change and any unused product should be discarded.

STORAGE AND SHELF LIFE
EP 310 has a shelf life of 6 months if kept in a dry, store between 5ºC and 30ºC in the original unopened containers. The product should be protected from frost, away from direct sunlight and sources of heat.
In case of contact with the eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice and after contact with the skin wash immediately with plenty of soap and water (do not use solvents). Prolonged contact with the skin should be avoided, especially where the user has an allergic reaction to epoxide materials. Always wear gloves and eye/face protection is necessary. Observe personal hygiene, particularly washing the hands after work has been completed or at any interruption whilst work is in progress. Care should be taken when removing gloves to avoid contaminating the insides. In case of accidents seek medical advice.
DISPOSAL / SPILLAGE
Spillage of any of the accelerating admixer product should be removed with plenty of water. Disposal of such product or empty packaging should be in accordance with local waste disposal authority regulations.
