Adhesives Technology is  happy to announce that we have received another DOT approval!  We now have approvals in Texas for ALL FOUR classes of TEXAS TYPE III – Dowel, Tie-bar and Anchoring Adhesives. They have approved ULTRABOND HS-1CC as TYPE III CLASS E, through 12/31/2019 under DMS – 6110 QUALITY MONITORING PROGRAM FOR EPOXIES AND ADHESIVE. Texas had already approved ULTRABOND HS-1CC as TYPE III, CLASS C – cartridge and bulk.

Explanation of TYPES:

Type III—Dowel, Tie Bar, and Anchoring Adhesive. Type III adhesives are used to anchor dowels and tie bars in concrete and are suitable to bond steel to hardened concrete. There are four classes.

  • Class C. This formulation is a standard cure cartridge-dispensed material or a bulk material for machine application only. Class C is used for either horizontal or vertical down application of dowel and tie bars. (See NOTE.)
  • Class D. This formulation is a fast cure cartridge-dispensed material or a bulk material for machine application only. Class D is used for either horizontal or vertical down applications of dowel and tie bars. This adhesive can be used in cold weather conditions. (See NOTE.)
  • Class E. This formulation is a standard cure cartridge-dispensed material for use in anchoring applications where the anchor is placed in either horizontal or vertical down applications. (See NOTE.)
  • Class F. This formulation is a fast cure cartridge-dispensed material for use in anchoring applications where the anchor is placed in either horizontal or vertical down applications. This adhesive can be used in cold weather conditions. (See NOTE.)
    • NOTE: Vertical overhead applications are not allowed.
