Offering so many anchoring solutions.
Our New Product Development Departments in Glasgow and Poland have worked hard to ensure there is a Resin solution for every situation.
With recent developments of the Rawlplug® R-CFS (foil), R-KER-W (fast cure resin in a cartridge) and the well established R-KEX, the company is able to offer the most comprehensive range available today.
The new environmentally friendly R-CFS is a high performance anchoring system where the resin is contained in a foil sleeve. Three types of resin are available including Vinylester styrene free and Polyester styrene free, depending on loading and structural requirements. This is the most economical system as there is no plastic cartridge required and so waste material is insignificant. A new improved gun is available for comfort and ease of use.
The next most recent development is very topical-low temperature resin. The current Rawlplug® R-KER Vinylester 380ml cartridge system operates down to -5°C. Rawlplug have now provided a solution in the form of R-KER-W for very low temperatures. This new product can be used down to -20°C, with reduced curing time.
R-KER and R-KER-W are high strength resins giving maximum loads in concrete when used with threaded studs or rebar. Embedments can be deeper to increase load capacities, and pumping is easy due to the resin consistency.
Both these products have been awarded a European Technical Approval (ETA), providing even further evidence of the quality and performance of Rawlplug products.
The most difficult anchoring solutions involve Overhead and Hollow Structures. Rawl offers 2 possible answers for this – the R-KEM-II 300ml cartridge, recently awarded a European Technical Approval (ETA), and the R-KF2 Polyester resin 380ml cartridge.
The R-KEM-II is used in a standard skeleton gun for convenience, and both of these resins can be considered as problem solving and very versatile. The full range of accessories are available for hollow structures including mesh and plastic sleeves.
Moving on to the Resin Capsule system which was the original bonded anchor, consisting of glass capsule, resin, quartz aggregate and hardener. The capsule is placed in the hole (only for solid structures), and the stud is connected to a drilling machine and drilled through the capsule down to the bottom of the hole, mixing all the components as it goes. This is a very high performance system, quick curing, with absolutely no waste materials or pollution.
For applications involving Rebar, the R-HAC-V Hammer Capsule is an easy solution. Simply drill the required hole, drop in the capsule and hammer the rebar in by hammer or for multiple capsules, by hammer action drilling machine.
Then we should consider the Mechanical anchor range – including the high performance SafetyPlus, R-XPT Throughbolts, and the famous and original Rawlbolt, (now with Option 1 European Technical Approval), and the general purpose Rawlok sleeve anchor and 2 types of Wedge Anchors, both with ETA’s used especially for mechanical and electrical services.
