PRO V500 resin approved for use following trials against Hilti RE 500
PROVENTURE were recently awarded an order for PRO V500 injection resin for a customer working on a prestigious London development, following successful on-site trials. The technical data sheets for PRO V500 were assessed by the clients design engineer who was satisfied with the performance and technical approvals and arranged on site pull-out tests.
Three M16 dowels were installed with the originally specified product, Hilti RE500 and three with PRO V500. All six anchors were tested and held to the maximum capability of the test equipment, 200kN (approximately 20 tons).
As a result PRO V500 resin has been approved to secure thousands of dowel bars on site, overturning the Hilti RE500 specification. Over the course of the contract, the customer will make significant cost savings (in excess of £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, CE certification and WRAS approval. It is a cost-effective alternative to Hilti RE500 and is typically 35% cheaper per cartridge.
