Rapid Set


Multi-Purpose Two-Component Structural Epoxy

DESCRIPTION: Rapid Set® FAST ANCHORING & REPAIR ADHESIVE is a two-component, rigid structural epoxy anchoring repair adhesive designed to develop a strong, durable bond to concrete, masonry, and dissimilar building materials. The high-performance mechanical bond strength and pull-out strength make it suitable for use in a wide range of general construction, repair and maintenance projects.

USES: Use FAST ANCHORING & REPAIR ADHESIVE on properly prepared concrete and masonry substrates. It has a high chemical resistance for use in environments such as swimming pools with chlorine or near salt water. It is ideal for anchoring bolts, dowels, rebar, and wall ties to concrete, concrete blocks, stone, and other masonry substrates. Use as a mortar to fill holes, divets, pop-outs, and non-moving joints/cracks on concrete and masonry. This anchor and repair material is not intended for use as a cosmetic or decorative product. The resin may cause staining in certain materials.

SURFACE PREPARATION: Ensure the substrate is clean, sound and free of bond inhibitors, such as grease, oil, mold, coatings and sealers. Do not install anchor in delaminated or weak substrates. Follow the Technical Installation Procedures for Anchoring, at www.CTScement.com, to properly prepare the anchor hole.

APPLICATION: The minimum application temperature is 41ºF (5ºC) and rising. The maximum application temperature is 104ºF (40ºC). Cartridge temperature needs to be a minimum of 41°F (5°C); optimal temperature is 68°F (20°C). For best results, place adhesive when the ambient temperature is between 68°F and 86°F (20°C and 30°C). Ensure surface, personnel and equipment are ready before application. Unscrew top and screw on the provided nozzle onto the mouth of the cartridge. Insert the cartridge into a quality extrusion gun with a minimum of 18:1 thrust ratio. Extrude material with three full pumps until an even gray color, without streaks, flows out. Refer to the Technical Installation Procedures for Anchoring to apply resin inside the anchoring hole.

CURING: At 68°F (20°C), working time is 30 minutes and is load bearing ready in 10 hours.

Cartridge Temperature
*41°F (5°C) 180 min 50 hours 100 hours
*50°F (10°C) 120 min 24 hours 48 hours
68°F (20°C) 30 min 10 hours 20 hours
86°F (30°C) 20 min 6 hours 12 hours
104°F (40°C) 12 min 4 hours 8 hours

*For installations in base material temperature between 41°F and 50°F (5°C and 10°C) the cartridge temperature must be conditioned to between 41°F and 68°F (5°C and 20°C).

COLD WEATHER: Installation in low temperatures will extend cure times of the Rapid Set® FAST ANCHORING & REPAIR ADHESIVE. To ease flow and placement in cold conditions, warm the cartridge above 50°F (10°C) for 24 hours prior to installation. Remove dew, frost or ice from the substrate with acetone on a clean cloth, then place adhesive immediately.

WARM WEATHER: Installation in warmer temperatures, at 86°F (30°C) and above, will not adversely affect adhesive performance. Warmer temperatures will decrease viscosity, working and cure time.

CLEAN-UP: Clean up with acetone and disposable rags before it hardens on placement tools and surfaces. Dispose of waste material in compliance with local regulations.

PACKAGING: FAST ANCHORING & REPAIR ADHESIVE is available in a 9 fl. oz. (265 mL) cartridge.

SHELF LIFE: When stored correctly, the shelf life is 18 months from the date of manufacture.

STORAGE: Store upright in original, unopened container, in a cool, dry, area. Protect unopened container from water, heat and direct sunlight. Store at 41°F to 85°F (5°C to 29°C). Elevated temperatures will reduce shelf life.

LIMITATIONS: Not for use in delaminated or weak substrates. The maximum long-term temperature of the base material should not exceed 110°F (43°C) and the maximum short-term temperature should not exceed 150°F (65°C). Long-term temperatures are roughly consistent over significant time periods. Short-term temperatures occur over brief intervals. Consult a design professional prior to use. The design professional on the job is ultimately responsible for the interpretation of the data provided above and potential safety hazards.

For specific information on tension loads, anchor size, steel failure, pullout and concrete cone failure, concrete breakout, and concrete edge failure, consult the Technical Performance Sheet for Fast Anchoring and Repair Adhesive at www.CTScement.com.

USER RESPONSIBILITY: Before using, read current technical data sheets, bulletins, product labels and safety data sheets. It is the user’s responsibility to review the instructions and warnings for any CTS products prior to use. Wear chemical resistant gloves and protect eyes and skin during use. Do not attempt to force adhesive out of a hardened mixing nozzle. Use a new mixer nozzle to avoid rupturing the container. If a leak should develop, discontinue use immediately and use a new cartridge. While all reasonable care is taken in compiling technical data on the company’s products, all recommendations or suggestions regarding the use of such products are made without guarantee, since the conditions of use are beyond the control of the company. It is the responsibility of the customer to confirm that the product is fit for the purpose for which it is intended to be used.

WARNING: DO NOT BREATHE VAPORS. AVOID CONTACT WITH SKIN AND EYE. Do not breathe vapors. Use product in well ventilated areas. Forced local exhaust is recommended to effectively minimize exposure. NIOSH approved, organic vapor respirators are recommended in confined areas, or when conditions (such as heated polymer, sanding) may cause high vapor concentrations. Do not weld on, burn, or torch any epoxy material. Hazardous vapor is released when an epoxy is burned. For additional information, refer to the precautionary statement on the Safety Data Sheet.

Please refer to the SDS and www.CTScement.com for additional safety information regarding this material.

LIMITED WARRANTY: CTS Cement Manufacturing Corp. (CTS) warrants its materials to be of good quality, and at its option, within 18 months from date of manufacture, will replace material proven defective or refund purchase price thereof, and such replacement or refund shall be the limit of CTS’s responsibility. Except for the foregoing, all warranties, expressed or implied, including merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, are excluded.
