Epoxy Resin-Based Chemical Anchor Mapefix EP by MAPEI

Pure epoxy, resin-based chemical anchor for structural loads
Mapefix EP 385 & Mapefix EP 585

Mapefix EP 385 and Mapefix EP 585 are adhesives for chemically anchoring metal bars in holes made in building materials. It is a two-component, solvent-free product made from pure epoxy resin. Available in 385ml and 585ml cartridges. It has been specifically developed for chemically anchoring steel and zinc-plated steel threaded and deformed bar, which transmit structural loads to solid substrates such as concrete, lightweight concrete, stone, wood, and compact masonry. Specific also for anchoring metal bars in tension and compression zones in cracked and non-cracked concrete, including in areas at risk of seismic activity.

It is an ideal solution for anchoring close to edges or when there is a limited pitch between each anchor, in that there is no stress generated as with conventional mechanical expansion fasteners.

The epoxy formulate of Mapefix EP 385 and Mapefix EP 585 gives the resin extended workability time (see Table 1) which makes it particularly suitable for anchors in areas at high temperatures or where loads are not constant. Mapefix EP 385 and Mapefix EP 585 is recommended for all types of anchor with a horizontal, vertical, inclined, or overhead axis and in tension or compressed zones, which are subjected to static, dynamic, and seismic loads.

Mapefix EP 385 and Mapefix EP 585 may also be used for immersed anchors which are permanently damp, in marine, and industrial environments and in areas subjected to chemical aggression. The product may be applied at temperatures between +5°C and +40°C, including on damp or wet substrates and in holes immersed under water.

Mapefix EP 385 and Mapefix EP 585 may be applied in both smooth and rough holes and in holes which have been cored or made with a hammer drill, and may be used for anchors with both small or large crowns. Mapefix EP 385 and Mapefix EP 585 are recommended for anchoring elements in place, such as:

  • strengthening rods in construction joints;
  • immersed anchors and anchors in damp environments;
  • under water anchors;
  • anchors in marine and industrial environments;
  • overhead crane and tram rails;
  • industrial motors;
  • aerials and signs;
  • pylons;
  • safety barriers;
  • highway guard-rails.
