Resins and Cement Cartridges
FASLOC® X-Treme Resin
FASLOC® resin grout anchors are composed of polyester resin and an organic peroxide initiator paste. The film barrier, composed of heat sealed polyester film, prevents migration and premature reaction between the resin and the promoter in order to provide extended shelf-life. The barrier film is strong enough to withstand rough handling, but allows thorough mixing during the “spin” phase of installation, allowing you to begin the reaction only when intended.
When a roof bolt or cable is introduced into the borehole, the cartridge ruptures and the resin and initiator are forced into the annular gap between bolt and borehole. When the bolt spins the resin and promoter are mixed, starting the reaction that transforms the mixture into a high strength solid. The extraordinary strength of polyester resin based systems results from the relatively high compressive strength of the cured resin and the ability to mold to the contours of bolt and borehole during the spin phase of installation.
Directions For Use
Installation of resin anchored systems are simple and fast:
1. Drill a borehole to a depth 1” longer than the roof bolt or cable and insert the required number of resin capsules
2. Insert bolt or cable into the hole—slow rotation is optional
3. Spin bolt or cable as required by the spin time table
4. Apply upward thrust while the resin finishes curing
