Post-installed rebar connections have proved their worth in everyday construction, be it for connecting new walls, columns or stairs, closing existing floor openings, or creating floor plates, concrete covers or foundation extensions. As such, heavy-duty chemical fixings are frequently used for applications such as these during new builds and renovations. The fixing specialist fischer provides concrete construction specialists with a secure and efficient solution for post-installed rebar connections with an ETA with its new RebarConnect FIS RC II vinyl ester hybrid mortar.
The ETA covers applications with reinforcing bars with a diameter of 8 to 32 mm that are embedded at depths of up to 2 m. Short processing and curing times enable quick work progress in drill holes created either with hollow or hammer drills. Possible temperatures of -10 °C to +40 °C in the anchor substrate according to the ETA allow for flexible and universal applications. FIS RC II has also been approved for post-installed rebar connections with a service life of 100 years. The injection mortar's ETA enables designs up to fire resistance class R 180. FIS RC II is available in container sizes of 360 ml and 825 ml shuttle cartridges. The battery-operated dispensers FIS DB S Pro and FIS DB SL Pro are suitable for the two cartridge sizes and complete the product range.
Users also have access to a reliable and safe programme for designing post-installed rebar connections with the REBAR-FIX module from the fischer FiXperience software suite. Depending on the on-site options and requirements, the REBAR-FIX programme enables verification in line with various standards and guidelines.
fischer's technical field service and technical hotline are available in case users have any queries. The fischer Academy also offers e-learning training on post-installed rebar connections through live online and in-person seminars. The programme contains regular training sessions that allow participants to obtain a certification from The German Institute for Structural Engineering upon completion. German companies and tradespeople require this certification in order to be allowed to execute post-installed rebar connections.
