|MiTek’s Epoxy Line Offers Products for Use in a Wide Range of Applications, From Heavy-Industrial Seismic to Household Projects
Chesterfield, MO – June 8, 2017 – MiTek today announced that its INCREDI-BOND® product has joined MiTek Builder Products’ lineup of high-performance epoxy anchoring solutions, where MiTek offers epoxy solutions for use in a wide range of projects, from heavy-industrial seismic and wind applications to household projects.
INCREDI-BOND is a high-strength, two-component epoxy specifically designed to be a bonding agent for almost all household materials including wood, steel, concrete, brick, stone, and CMU block. INCREDI-BOND, which is moisture-insensitive, has a two-year shelf life when stored in unopened containers in dry conditions between 40°-95°F.
INCREDI-BOND offers over 1,000 psi bond strength in two days, a quick initial cure time of two hours at 75°F, and a convenient 20-minute working time. INCREDI-BOND’s non-sag formulation makes it an excellent epoxy for overhead patching and repairs. Plus, there’s easy tool clean up with M.E.K. or WD-40.
INCREDI-BOND joins these other MiTek epoxy solutions:
- CIA-GEL 7000-C™, code-compliant epoxy designed for tension and shear loads due to wind or earthquake (Seismic Design Category C–F). CIA-GEL 7000-C is designed to attach anchor bolts into concrete that is, or may become, cracked due to cyclic loading from wind or earthquakes.
- CIA-GEL 7000™, masonry-approved epoxy designed to attach anchor bolts into fully grouted concrete masonry units (CMU). CIA-GEL 7000 has ICC-ES AC58 approval for seismic, sustained load, elevated temperature, and freeze-thaw suitability conditions.
- CIA-GEL 6000-GP™, general purpose, quick cure epoxy for general-purpose structural applications that require quick load times and for doweling applications that require state DOT approval.
- CIA-EA™, epoxy acrylate structural adhesive for high-strength, fast-cure structural anchoring of threaded rod and deformed rebar into uncracked concrete.
