Dowel and tie bar adhesion in full-depth concrete repairs is reportedly possible with POLY-GRIP. This two-component, styrene-free, acrylic system can be used for anchoring and doweling applications in uncracked concrete using threaded rod and rebar. It can also be used in short-term anchoring and shear loading applications in accordance with allowable stress design (ASD).

The adhesive may be used and dispensed in temperatures between 15-95°F (-9° - 35°C). POLY-GRIP offers a service temperature range between -40° - 176°F (-40° - 80°C), and can be installed and cure in damp and water-saturated environments.

“The rapid cure and fast turn-around time, even in very cold weather, allowsusers  to get more work done in a day which saves time and labor,” said Steve Geiger, technical services manager, building envelope/restoration.
