Epoxy Technology

The pure epoxy technology is the advanced high performance chemical anchoring technology with an outstanding chemical resistance and industrial strength. Good compound properties achieve outstanding load values, always giving professional solution for specialized applications.


Product Description

MASON C-RE 585 mortar is a 2-component reaction resin mortar based on a pure epoxy and will be delivered in a exclusive 2-C cartridge system. This high performance product may be used in combination with a hand-,battery-, pneumatic tool and a static mixer. It was designed especially for the anchoring of threaded rods, reinforcing bars or internal threaded rod sleeves into concrete (also porous and light) as well as solid masonry. Based on the excellent standing behaviour the usability in combination with a special plastic sleeve in hollow material is given. MASON C-RE 585 mortar product is characterised, by a huge range of applications with an installation temperature from +5°C and a service temperature up to 72°C as well as by high chemical resistance for applications in extreme ambiences e.g. in swimming pools (chlorine) or closeness to the sea (salt). The wide range of certificates, national and international approvals, allows nearly every application.


Special Properties and Benefits

  • For heavy anchoring – doweling and post-installed rebar connection
  • Hammer drilled and diamond drilled holes possible 
  • Overhead application; waterfilled bore holes applicable
  • Suitable for attachment point close to the edge, since anchoring is free of expansion forces
  • Suitable for dynamic load; Cracked concrete applicable 
  • High-bending and pressure strength 
  • Strong and secure anchoring even underwater
  • Mortar is water-impermeable acc. to DIN EN 12390-8
  • Fire-resistance and high chemical resistance
  • Low shrinkage: ideal for larger annular gap
  • Low odour
  • Safe for use as a component in a drinking water system
  • Flexible working time at elevated temperatures
  • Mechanical properties acc. to EN 196 Part1: –
    • Density: 1,41 kg/ dm2
    • Compressive strength: 137 N/mm2
    • Bending strength: 47 N/mm2
    • Dynamic modulus of elasticity: 3240 N/mm2
  • Resealable cartridge: can be reused up to the end of the shelf life

C-RE 585 Tensile Pull-Out Test Method

1) Place the loading frame over the rebar/ threaded rod  anchor to be tested.

2) For threaded rod testing, connect the coupler with high tensile threaded rod to the anchor to be tested.

3) Place the suitable hollow plunger cylinder on the frame and through the rebar/ anchor.

4) For rebar testing, assemble the rebar wedge c/w wedge blocks on the set up. Apply a firm tap on the wedge to have full engagement of the rebar.

5) Connect the hydraulic hand pump, pressure gauge and hose assembly and then check for the leakages.

6) Apply the load gradually to the required proof load (design load for non-destructive testing) or ultimate load (for destructive testing).

7) Observe the mode of failure.

8) Record the achieved load and mode of failure.
