Dislodged wedge bolt
Anchoring a wedge bolt
Wedge bolts are the traditional method for fastening heavy objects to a wall. But if the substrate is too weak, they always come loose. This happens because a wedge bolt exerts a high degree of pressure on the surrounding stones and joints, which then break or crumble. We solve this problem by replacing the wedge bolt with a stud that we anchor with 2-K Mix. You have the choice between 2K-Mix Fast or 2K-Mix Superfast, depending on the application.
Step 1: Preparation
Remove the old wedge bolt.
Remove loose particles and dust with brush and/or vacuum cleaner.
Degrease the stud with Tec7 Cleaner.
Step 2: Anchoring
Choose a stud having the right diameter and length as a function of the application. In hollow materials you use the Anchor Plug.
Screw the mixer tip onto the cartridge. Eject around 10 cm and dispose of it.
Inject 2-K Mix into the drilling hole, from back to front.
Screw the stud as deeply as possible into the mass.
Step 3: Finishing
Remove excess 2-K Mix immediately with
The open working time (at 20°C) is:
10 minutes for 2-K Mix Fast (complete curing after 120 min.)
4 minutes for 2-K Mix Superfast (complete curing after 60 min.)..
After curing, 2-K Mix is perfectly workable: tapping, drilling, milling, cutting with a saw, etc.
