Rotafix EP3 is a three-part high strength epoxy system used for bearing surfaces where high dynamic loads are present.
Rotafix EP3 is specified for :-
Bridge Deck Bearing Surfaces
Bedding manholes frames subject to traffic loads
The benefits of using an epoxy resin grout are ;
High compressive, flexural and tensile strengths
Excellent resistance to chemicals
Ability to withstand high dynamic loading and vibration
Good range of thicknesses from down to 5mm up to 150mm
Provides strong adhesion to concrete and steel
With Compressive Strength greater that 75 N/mm² EP3 creates a stable base for civil engineering structures. The tensile strength of 18 N/mm² gives you the ability to secure mechanical fixings into the grout with assurance that the substrate is not going to fail.
The flexural strength of pure concrete is 10-20% typically of the compressive strength, subject to the size of the aggregate. EP3 has greater Flexural Strength at 36 N/mm².
