ULTIMATE PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
Tensile Strength (ASTM 638) -> 1ON/mm sq.
Compressive Strength (ASTM 695) -> 78N/mm sq.
Flexural Strength (ASTM 790 - 21N/mm sq.
Elastic Modulus - 4570N/mm sq.
Mixed Density - 1.65g/cm sq.
The above physical properties were arrived at independently by Birmingham City Laboratories.

Tension figures quoted are tested in accordance with BS5080 part 1 in 63 N/mm sq concrete blocks (12 x 12 x 12 inches). In all cases for 16mm and 20mm anchors failure of the concrete block was observed before the anchor was dislodged.
The ultimate pull out strength is varied by:
1. The strength of both the substrate and bar/stud
2. The length of the resin bond to bar
3. Hole preparation
4. Anchor separation
Safety factors of between 2:1 and 4:1 should be considered depending on the strength and nature of the substrate. Due to the inconsistent nature of hollow blocks and bricks tension figures may vary. Site testing should be carried out where necessary to establish particular suitability. In order to achieve maximum performance the distance between the centres of the anchors should be a minimum of2.5 x the embedment depth, and 1.25 x the embedment depth for the minimum distance from edges.
Store in a dry area between 5 C and 25 C. Do not expose to direct sunlight. Storage at higher temperatures will reduce the shelf life.
