Kemko® 038, Regular IR is a two-component, low viscosity, structural epoxy adhesive resin / hardener specifically designed for pressure injection grouting using KIP System automatic meter, mix and dispensing application equipment. Primary uses include the structural repair of cracks and delaminations in concrete, masonry, stone and wood; filling of voids in porous and honeycombed concrete and grout; adhesive bonding of steel plates (external reinforcement); and, anchoring bolts, dowels and rebar into concrete,masonry or stone. External Reinforcement of steel plate and carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP). Applications requiring material thickness in excess of 1/4 inch (6.35 mm) may be facilitated by pre-placing aggregate in the void. Kemko® 038 bonds to damp, wet, and underwater substrates. The components do not contain volatile organic compounds (VOC’s).
The physical properties of the product allow its use in applications requiring resistance to creep and stress relaxation, maintenance of mechanical properties at high ambient temperatures, high load bearing strength and excellent adhesion under adverse application conditions, e.g., cold, wet concrete. Kemko® 038 cures to a tough, resilient polymer and has excellent load transfer capability. Exceptional substrate wetting ensures penetration and filling of fine fissures and tributary cracks as narrow as 2 mils (0.051 mm) width. It has a convenient 2:1 (by vol.) mixing ratio and employs special colorants for contrasting component color.Technical Data Sheet
