Why do I need drill hole cleaning for Chemical fixings?13. April 2018
Everyday construction life. A multitude of applications are waiting to be finished. Drill the hole, inject the resin, screw in the rod anchor and on to the next job. Just a moment: hasn’t something been forgotten? Shouldn’t the drill hole be cleaned? Some say it definitely should, otherwise the load-bearing capacity is reduced according to the approval. Others say it will still hold and saves time.
What’s the real truth? We put it to the test for you.
The result is clear. If the drill hole of Chemical fixings isn’t cleaned, its load-bearing capacity is reduced fourfold. One thing is therefore certain:
The drill hole should be cleaned! This is the only way for fixings to provide a secure hold and fulfil their supporting roles.
The correct drill hole cleaning for the respective product should always be read again on the assembly instructions.
Our tip: resin capsule FHB II-P. The pre-portioned resin capsule can be used in uncleaned drill holes.
