Simpson Strong-Tie, the leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, has achieved California Department of Public Health (CDPH) indoor air quality compliance for its SET-XP®, AT-XP® and SET-3G™ anchoring adhesives.
Recognized as one of the most rigorous standards for environmental health, the CDPH Standard Method for Testing and Evaluation of Volatile Organic Chemical Emissions from Indoors Sources prescribes criteria for testing how products affect indoor air quality through the release of volatile organic compounds (VOC). All three of the aforementioned Simpson Strong-Tie anchoring adhesives passed CDPH’s battery of tests, demonstrating that these products are among the safest available.
SET-XP epoxy anchoring adhesive is a high-strength formula for anchoring and doweling in cracked and uncracked concrete and masonry applications.
Formulated for high-strength anchorage of threaded rod and rebar into cracked and uncracked concrete and masonry under a wide range of conditions, AT-XP acrylic adhesive dispenses easily in cold or warm environments and in below-freezing temperatures with no need to warm the cartridge.
SET-3G high-strength epoxy is the latest innovation in anchoring adhesives from Simpson Strong-Tie. Formulated to provide superior performance in cracked and uncracked concrete at elevated temperatures, SET-3G installs and performs in a variety of environmental conditions and temperature extremes.
“We’re pleased to have achieved compliance with CDPH testing for SET-XP, AT-XP and SET-3G,” says Simpson Strong-Tie senior product manager for concrete construction products Corey Clark. “CDPH is recognized as the gold standard for measuring how products contribute to indoor air quality, and it’s great to know that these high-performance anchoring adhesives are industry leaders in terms of environmental health, too.”
