The purpose of chemical anchors is to secure threaded rods and other structural components in place. This versatile anchoring system is easy to use and widely applicable. They come in a dual-injectable cartridge with different filler amounts. Polyester chemical anchors are widely used for structural applications and are a good choice for medium-loading, threaded rod anchoring, and dry concrete projects.
The advantages of chemical anchors include their long embedding depth. A rod embedded deeper in the hole can increase the load capacity of the anchoring system. This technique dates back to the 17th century, when sulphur was used to anchor metal to stone. It was only in 1972 that chemical anchor technology successfully conquered its first major challenge: the Olympic stadium in Munich. Its advantages far outweigh its disadvantages. For example, a chemical anchor can be used for mounting in porous materials, cracked concrete, and a wide variety of other materials.
In general, chemical anchors are more reliable than mechanical anchors. They are much safer and do not create stress points, making them a safer alternative. Additionally, chemical anchors are more effective on brittle and soft concrete and are more flexible than mechanical anchors. Whether you're laying a railing on the edge of a concrete staircase or a wall, chemical anchors can withstand the weight. In addition, unlike mechanical anchors, they don't require a perfect hole every time.
