London client finds Hilti alternative injection resin
Proventure products are gaining a firm reputation as a cost-effective alternative to Hilti equivalents, with no reduction in performance.
The latest to benefit is a London client working on a prestigious city development. The customer conducted successful on-site trials for PRO V500 injection resin and the design engineer assessed the product’s technical data sheets. After site pull-out tests, they decided to go with PRO V500.
The client installed three M16 dowels with the originally specified product, Hilti RE500, and three with PRO V500. They tested all six anchors and all held to the maximum capability of the test equipment, 200kN (approximately 20 tons).
As a result, the client approved PRO V500 resin to secure thousands of dowel bars on site, overturning the Hilti RE500 specification. This translates to significant cost savings for the customer of more than £10,000.
PRO V500 is a pure epoxy, high-strength injection resin used primarily for securing rebar and dowel bars. It has European Technical Approval Option 1 and Option 7, plus CE certification. Unlike Hilti products, it also has WRAS approval, for use in drinking water. PRO V500 is a cost-effective alternative to Hilti RE500 that typically saves customers 40%.
