CCS™ Epoxy Bonders

ChemCo Epoxies for ASTM C 881
ChemCo Epoxies for ASTM C 881

CCS epoxy bonding agents are generally used to join fresh (plastic) concrete to old concrete, hardened concrete to existing concrete and masonry, or to attach other materials including stone to, or embed them in concrete or masonry. These epoxy adhesive bonders can be used in non-load bearing and load bearing concrete repairs and new construction applications. These products can also be used with external glass or carbon fiber reinforcement fabrics, steel plates and rods and well as steel rebar in stitching applications. ASTM C881 summarizes some of the test requirements for the specific applications listed above.

On horizontal surfaces and in vertical, downward oriented holes, the liquid form of these adhesives is generally preferred. On walls, ceilings, overhead and horizontally oriented holes and for the repair of wide cracks, pastes are the preferred products.

While concrete to concrete and concrete to steel bonding constitutes the major use for these materials, attaching certain flexible rubbers and plastics to concrete or steel (such as ADA tactile warning strips), or steel to steel and wood bonding applications are also significant uses.

Long work life bonding agents are generally desirable in applications requiring significant manual labor, when cure time is not a constraint and in instances where a low exotherm epoxy adhesive is beneficial. Short work life bonders are the preferred materials at low application temperatures and in applications where relatively fast cure times are important. The long and short work life bonder liquids and pastes are compatible with each other and can be blended to achieve certain application viscosities and pot lives. The A and B components of each product should be pre-mixed, proportioned, combined, mixed again and then combined with the other pre-mixed material.

All CCS Bonders are best applied right after mixing, when they have optimum substrate wetting and viscosity characteristics. The creamy consistency of the CCS Bonder pastes facilitates trowel and caulking gun application. These features aid materially in the achievement of good production rates during application.

The excellent physical properties of the CCS Bonders allow their use in applications requiring resistance to creep and stress relaxation, maintenance of mechanical properties at high ambient temperatures and high load bearing strength. The excellent substrate wetting and water displacement properties provide high adhesive bond strength, even under adverse application conditions.

Paste 217 Security Sealant can be used for filling floor, wall and ceiling joints in difficult applications including precast panels used in prisons, detention centers, correctional facilities and high security facilities. Paste 217 Security Sealant is toughened with Kevlar® and ceramic reinforcement and offers pick-proof and tamper-proof protection for joints. It features very high sag resistance for easy placement in overhead and vertical applications. The cured epoxy joint sealant is typically stronger than the surrounding concrete in both compression and tensile test results.
