Chemical Fixings for Construction and Industrial Use

Chemical fixing, also known as chemical anchoring or chemical fastening, is a method of securely attaching or anchoring objects to a substrate, typically a solid material like concrete, masonry, or stone. This is achieved by using specialised chemicals or resins that bond the anchor or fastener to the substrate. This method is commonly used in construction and engineering for applications where traditional mechanical fasteners may not be suitable.

  1. Components:
    • Resin: The core component of a chemical fixing system is the resin, which is a two-part compound consisting of a base and a hardener. When mixed, the base and hardener react to form a strong, durable bond.
    • Anchor: A threaded rod or other type of fastener is inserted into the drilled hole and secured with the resin. This becomes the anchor point for attaching other components.
  2. Application Process:
    • Drilling: A hole is drilled into the substrate using a hammer drill and an appropriately sized masonry bit.
    • Cleaning: The hole is thoroughly cleaned to remove any dust or debris, ensuring a proper bond.
    • Injection: The mixed resin is injected into the hole, surrounding the anchor.
    • Insertion: The threaded rod or other fastener is then inserted into the hole, displacing the resin and ensuring it fills all available space.
    • Curing: The resin is allowed to cure, forming a strong bond between the anchor and the substrate.
  3. Advantages:
    • Load Bearing Capacity: Chemical fixings can provide very high load-bearing capacities, often surpassing what can be achieved with traditional mechanical anchors.
    • Versatility: They can be used in a wide range of substrates, including concrete, masonry, and stone.
    • Aesthetic Considerations: Since chemical fixings don’t require visible mechanical fasteners, they can be more aesthetically pleasing, which is important in some architectural applications.
  4. Applications:
    • Chemical fixings are used in various industries, including construction, civil engineering, and infrastructure projects. Common applications include attaching structural elements, securing handrails, and anchoring machinery.
  5. Considerations:
    • It’s important to choose the appropriate type of resin and anchor for the specific application, taking into account factors like substrate material, load requirements, and environmental conditions.
    • Proper installation is crucial for the effectiveness and safety of chemical fixings. This may involve consulting manufacturer guidelines or engaging a professional installer.
    • Chemical fixing systems must meet relevant industry standards and regulations.

Overall, chemical fixing provides a reliable and versatile method for securely attaching objects to substrates, especially in situations where high load-bearing capacities are required or where aesthetics play a role in the design.
