Glue and Glue Guns

All Bolt Products are designed and tested for use with polyester glue and achieve exceptional results.

This is the most economical high performance construction glue available and all our tests and certification is carried out using this .

Our twisted leg bolts are tested and certified for use with quick-setting cement, polyester, vinylester, epoxyacrylate and epoxy grout systems.

If using quick setting cement please note it must cure for at least 6 days to achieve the requirements of EN959.

We do not recommend the use of glass ampoule systems as sufficient rotation of the bolt is hard to achieve.

Glue Quantities.

We can naturally give the theoretical requirements for a bolt/hole combination but additional to this there is the wastage priming the mixer nozzles, nozzle change, the excess per hole, the glue on your hands, clothes, hair etc, and other wastages. For example;- our standard 6mm x 80mm bolt theoretically needs 5,7 ml of glue, in practice we get around 25 to 30 bolts per 380ml cartridge which works out at 12 to 15ml per bolt, mainly depending on whether we used a complete tube in one session or had to change nozzles.
As a rough guide:-
6 x 80mm bolt - 25-30 per cartridge
6 x 100 23
6 x 150 20
8 x 80 20
8x 100 17
8x 150 15

Epoxyacrylate Glue

From our own experience and customer feedback we recommend the use of  epoxyacrylate as the best long-term glue system at a reasonable price. Not to be confused with "real" epoxy this glue system has considerable advantages over polyester, in particular better water resistance as well as higher strength. For more information on glues see Bolting Information
