Connecting steel to concrete with epoxy / polymer adhesive

Connecting steel to concrete with epoxy / polymer adhesive

Connecting steel to concrete with epoxy / polymer adhesive

I am interested in learning about specific cases of using epoxy or polymer adhesive to connect steel plates to concrete beams........as reinforcement.........particularly seeking information on shear, modulus of elasticity and creep potential........

RE: Connecting steel to concrete with epoxy / polymer adhesive

this very interesting subject. Ofcouse alots of parameters exits and can define.You can get information particularly from www.pieri.com
if you mentioned my name "murat erbas" they will help you very closely.Consult mr.chistian Prost from PIERI.

White Paper - Effects of AIA Quick Guide to UL 489 or UL 1077
The function of a circuit breaker is to provide overload (thermal) and short-circuit (magnetic) protection to a circuit and its downstream components. A circuit breaker functions like an airbag in a car, protecting circuit components and people by tripping the circuit to interrupt the current flow if it detects a fault condition in the control system.

White Paper - Guide to Integrate Large-Format Additive
As with any new technology, getting into large-format 3D printing begins with investigation. The first question may be a simple one: what does “large-format” mean? For 3D printers, “large” is a relative term. Many extrusion-based (FFF) 3D printers are referred to as desktop machines, because they fit on table space. Some of these have very respectable build volumes – but when it comes to “large-format,” the machines will need their own dedicated floor space. Large-format 3D printers have significant build volumes and are most often found in professional settings, like manufacturing facilities and R&D centers. Download Now
