Fosroc – Lokfix S25 (2.5ltr)
Polyester resin anchoring grout meeting requirements of BS EN 1504-6: Anchoring of reinforced steel bars.
Lokfix S25 is a two component polyester anchoring grout supplied in pre-measured quantities. The material cures quickly to give consistent, high performance anchorages. It is a pourable grade, with a 25 minute gel time at 20°C for use in vertical down holes where the hole is 8 to 40 mm greater in diameter than the bar.
- Easy to mix and apply
- Rapid strength gain
- Vibration resistant
- Corrosion resistant
- Can be placed underwater
- Increased flowability
Instructions for Use
Hole preparation and formation Optimum performance of Lokfix S25 requires rough sided, dust-free holes. Use of rotary percussive drills with air or water flushing is recommended.
Diamond drilled holes should be under-seamed or the surface roughened with a drill steel. Cast holes should preferably be of inverse dovetail configuration. If parallel sided holes are cast they should be rough to provide adequate keying.
All bars should be deformed. They should preferably be degreased and all flaky rust removed.
A complete pack of resin and catalysed filler should be mixed in one operation. Mixing may be carried out manually or mechanically. When a smooth, even consistency is achieved the grout is ready for use and should be placed well within the gel time of the grout.
Packs have been designed to produce practical and economic volumes of grout.
DO NOT attempt to mix partial pack components.
Lokfix S25 – Using the calculated volume of grout based on the estimating guide table, the grout should be poured steadily into the prepared holes. The anchor bar is then pressed into the hole to the required depth; slight agitation will assist in achieving a complete bond. The bar should be left undisturbed in the required position until the resin is set.
Any mixing drums, pumps, etc., should be cleaned with Fosroc Solvent 105 within he pot life of the grout. Cured material can only be removed mechanically.
The pack consists of a can of resin and a plastic bag of hardener contained in a plastic mixing pail with a snap-on lid. Volume of mixed components: 2.5 litres.
Store in accordance with the Highly Flammable Liquids and Liquefied Petroleum Gases Regulations 1972. Shelf life of 12 months at 20°C will be reduced at higher temperatures.
Fire resistance – Resin anchors should not be used where structural load bearing performance has to be maintained in anchors subjected to fire conditions.
