Bond betweenthe epoxy andthe concretebreaks
Technical Bulletin # 691B
Bulletin Description
Anchor bolt Pull Out Strength is the force required to pull a single bolt out of its foundation. Theseparation can occur between the epoxy grout and the concrete foundation or it can occur between theanchor bolt and the epoxy grout itself. This bulletin provides the formulas needed to calculate the forcerequired to pull an anchor bolt out in either manner.To calculate the Total Pull Out Strength of the entire machine, multiply the force required to pull one boltout times the total number of bolts.When calculating Pull Out Strength it is assumed that:1. A clean, threaded rod or bolt with a coarse surface profile is used.2. A nut and washer are installed at the bottom of the rod to act as a mechanical interference.3. The anchor bolt hole is clean and dry, with no contaminants.
Bond Strength Epoxy to Concrete
The bond of the epoxy grout to the concretefoundation is stronger than the bond of the concrete toitself. Typically, concrete will separate next to the bondline of the epoxy and concrete. Therefore, the weakestlink in the bond of epoxy to concrete is the concreteitself. The force required to pull concrete apart iscalled its
Shear Strength 
. A conservative value forconcrete shear strength is 800 psi. To determine theforce required to pullout the bolt separating it at theepoxy to concrete bond, use the following calculation:
Force = D x
x L x 800 psi
Where:F = Bolt Pullout Force in lbs.D = Grout Hole Diameter in inchesL = Length in inches of the grout hole
= 3.1415
Below are examples of the force required to pull outvarious size bolts out of various size holes.
