SEGMENTAL BRIDGE ADHESIVES

Sealing & Bonding Systems


for Precast Concrete Segments

DESCRIPTION
Five Star Segmental Bridge Adhesive and Five Star Segmental Bridge Adhesive LT are 100% solids, two-component structural epoxy
compounds used in the installation or repair of segmental bridges and structures. Two versions are available for varying temperature ranges:
Segmental Bridge Adhesive for 60-120F (16-49C), and Segmental Bridge Adhesive LT for 20-80F (-7 - 27C). The non-abrasive gels have
low-creep characteristics and enhanced tensile strength. Both conform to the current ASTM C-881, Types I, IV, VI and VII, Grade-3, Class-B/
C, AASHTO M-235 specifications.
USES
Bonding precast concrete segments Fasten bolts into walls
Bonding steel plates to concrete Gap & crack filling

BENEFITS
Easy 1 to 1 mix ratio Easy manual mixing and trowel application
V.O.C. compliant, 100% solids Good solvent and chemical resistance
Excellent adhesion to concrete and steel Excellent abrasion and impact resistance

PACKAGING & YIELD


Five Star Segmental Bridge Adhesive and Five Star Segmental Bridge Adhesive LT come packaged in kits made up of two one-gallon con-
tainers (7.6 liters). Coverage is approximately 26 ft2 (2.42m2) at 1/8 (0.32cm) thickness per kit.

SHELF LIFE
Two years in original unopened packaging when stored in dry conditions at 40F - 90F (4C - 32C).

PLACEMENT GUIDELINES FOR SEGMENTAL BRIDGE ADHESIVES
1. SURFACE PREPARATION: Concrete surfaces should be a minimum of 28 days old and may be dry or damp, but free of
standing water. Surfaces must be clean, sound and free of any dirt, laitance or other bond inhibiting contaminants. High-
pressure water blasting or abrasive blasting of surfaces is recommended. A concrete surface profile (CSP) of 3 to 4 in
accordance with ICRI Technical Guideline 03732 should be achieved. A steel surface profile of SSPC-SP-6 should be
achieved. Blow prepared surfaces clean.
2. MIXING INSTRUCTIONS: Material should be preconditioned to between 45F and 85F (7C and 30C) before using.
Premix each component thoroughly. Proportion equal parts by volume of Component A and Component B into a clean pail.
Stir or mix thoroughly for three minutes by hand with a low speed drill (400 to 600 rpm) until uniform in color. Avoid
entrapping air. Mix only a quantity that can be placed within a 30-minute working time.
3. METHOD OF PLACEMENT: Apply neat to the prepared substrate, working into substrate for positive adhesion. Apply 1/8
(3 mm) to one face, or 1/16 (1.5 mm) thickness to both faces, dependent on project requirements. Secure elements firmly
until adhesive has cured.
4. CLEAN-UP: Paint thinner, acetone or similar solvent may be used for clean up of tools and equipment. Cured material can
only be removed mechanically.

NOTE: PRIOR TO APPLICATION, READ ALL PRODUCT PACKAGING THOROUGHLY. For more detailed placement procedures,
refer to the Five Star Products Design-A-Spec installation guidelines or call the Five Star Products Engineering and Technica l
Service Center at 1-800-243-2206.

CONSIDERATIONS
Minimum application temperature of substrate is 20F (-7C) and rising, but must be frost free when using Segmental Bridge
Adhesive LT.
Do not thin with solvents.
