RCF High Strength Anchoring Epoxy Paste
RCF High Strength Anchoring Epoxy Paste is a two-component, 100% solids, moisture-insensitive, high strength, high modulus,
multi-purpose liquid epoxy gel adhesive. It meets the current ASTM C881 and AASHTO M235 Types I, II, IV & V Grade 3, Classes B & C
specifications. It has passed 4 million cycles of simulated seismic tension test.
2. WHERE TO USE
Use RCF High Strength Anchoring Epoxy Paste as an adhesive for setting/bonding subsurface or external reinforcements to concrete
masonry or other substrates. It can also be used for reinforcing steel dowels, threaded rods, bolts, and inserts into existing concrete.
Use as a multipurpose bond adhesive for structural bonding fresh or hardened concrete to hardened concrete, sealing cracks, setting
Rhino injection ports prior to injection grouting, and as a pick-proof sealant.

9. SURFACE PREPARATION
RCF High Strength Anchoring Epoxy Paste is an ideal bonding agent for multiple surfaces including concrete, brick, stone, block, and
metal. Surfaces must be clean and profiled or textured. New concrete must be a minimum of 28 days old. All dirt, oil, debris, wax, grease
or dust must be removed. Prepare the surface mechanically using a scarifier, sandblast, shot blast, bush hammer or other equipment
that will give the surface profile needed for the application. A roughened surface that exposes the aggregate and/or pores of the
substrate is imperative for good adhesion.
10. CLEAN UP
Clean tools and equipment with Tough Wipes by Rhino, a biodegradable formula, that removes and neutralizes the epoxy. Do not allow
epoxy to harden on equipment as cured material can only be removed mechanically.
