"Brilliant product which certainly lives up to its billing and details - only problem is it doesn't give you a lot of time before the nozzle clogs up!!! Thoroughly recommend to anyone who has crumbling plaster and walls which they need to fix items to such as curtain rails or poles."
"Where you need to install larger anchor bolts there is always a risk of splitting the material when using expanding type bolts. Not so if you use this product and the appropriate size studs or threaded bar and with a reasonable set-up of just over an hour and working time of around 20mins in temperature of around 12 degrees there's no rush or hassle. Once set it provides a superior hold (just make sure you remove any dust from the drilled hole beforehand). All in all a great method of fixing. Also used the product under a base plate of a lamp post to aid levelling and again did the job fine."
"Having recently had external wall insulation put on I had to have somewhere to re-attach my washing line bracket. Using long screws would have still allowed movement, I could have cut and fixed lengths of pipe behind the bracket to solve this but it was far simpler to use this and an M10 200mm ete bolt. (I would have preferred 220mm).
Painted the eye-bolt with two coats of Hammerite, drilled a 12mm hole and after vacuuming it out with a straw on the end of my cleaner filled the hole with this stuff.
It was easy to apply. simply put the bag into the cartridge (I put the longer overhang into the nozzle end), put the back on, load in a mastic gun, attach the nozzle and squeeze!
It mixes itself on the way out. It does not melt the insulation.
An hour after pushing the eye-bolt onto the hole I could not move it, 2 days later I hung the 55' line on it and some washing with no apparent movement. Time and a full washing line will tell if it is really holding.
This tube was more than enough to do both mine and a freind's house but because there are only two nozzles the remainder of the resin - about half of it - has now gone to waste. You can purchase extra nozzles but they are pretty expensive, more expensive in fact then this container. Hence the 3 stars."
"First time I have used this type of chemical anchor resin for a very long time, but what a product!! You have to be quick using it as you only have 8 minutes working time, but when it goes off, nothing will shift it!! I agree with other users comments that Screwfix do not need to supply 2 nozzles with a 175ml tube, if you don't use it all, I am sure it would go off very quickly, so better to only supply 1 nozzle and drop the price a bit."
"I have to say this is excellent value. In the past I have bought alternative resins but have used the no nonsense brand on quite a few products now and none have dissapointed - we used this to anchor joists into a wall along with bolts and thread and the results are spot on...!!"
"This resin is very good and does what it says on the tube. I used it to strengthen up the 90 deg bends on my caravan awning aluminium poles as they got damaged due to the weight of water on the awning the other weekend. This has saved me a great deal of time and money as I would have had to search for new poles"
"I ordered this product in the largest size without realising that it is a larger size cartridge than normal and would require a much larger gun costing far more than it's worth. The website does not make this clear, but apparently if you order in-store, they are supposed to ask if you need a gun. I returned the product and obtained a smaller version, which worked just fine. Easy to apply and my threaded rods are now embedded in a concrete foundation and I was able to bend the rods to shape after about an hour, with no harm to the resin or bond. The spare nozzle will be useful so I can use the rest of the resin at a different time."
"I had to hang a 37.5kg gun cabinet to wall. The 4anchor bolts supplied pulled out due to thermalite blocks. Re-drilled 4 holes & used this resin to secure pieces of threaded bar; this product dried in minutes. Cabinet is rock solid; the firearms officer was pleased with result. I would recommend this product to anyone 5/5."
"Excellent stuff, but careful preparation is essential. Vacuum out all the dust( use a straw attached to the vacuum pipe get deep in the hole). I embedded 6 mm stainless threaded rod above a window to hold up a curtain track, and it worked extremely well."
"I tried to hang some cupboards on a wall, but the plaster/surface of the bricks crumbled when I drilled for rawl plugs. So I went to wall bolts, but they were not long enough to get to the good solid brick - now I was in trouble. I had never used resin before, but I had nothing to lose. I drilled a 10mm hole deep enough to get to the good brick....filled with resin and put a rawl plug in the resin at the surface of the wall. The resin was set in 20 mins - the wall cupboards hung with no problems. I would definitely use this method again for fixing..... There were 2 static mixer nozzles included....only need 1 as the resin would go off before you could use it for another future job."
"Faced with re-hanging a wide batten for a heavy sliding door on a poor, lightweight wall I decided to give this a try, as the previous expanding Rawlplugs had pulled out. I fixed 10mm studs into 12mm holes using this product. There was more than enough for several holes about 55mm deep. The fixing has yet to stand the test of time (hence only "good" for performance) but I have great confidence this will be a really permanent job. Regarding the last comment on the "sell by" date, closer inspection of the tube clearly shows (in very small writing) this to be the manufacture date, NOT the sell by date! BEFORE starting to apply the resin, squeeze about half a golf ball size amount onto a piece of newspaper and make sure the (white) hardener is throughly mixing with the (grey) resin that initially comes out . Work quickly - the warmer the weather the quicker it goes off. The 2nd nozzle supplied is unecessary - if you don't use the whole tube in one go it'll be useless. So being able to buy a small tube makes this really good value. The Health and Safety leaflet shows this is a Rawlplug product so why pay more for the name? I will definitely use this again and would recommend it. The only caveat is that, once the studs are fixed in, they presumably cannot be removed without grinding them off or taking a chisel to the wall and removing the surrounding material. A consideration for some jobs."
"I used this to replace eight 8mm Rawlbolts which weren't fit for purpose (foolishly, I though I could use Rawlbolts to fit steel brackets into exterior blockwork).
The contact area you'll get with a resin fix is many times that which you'll get from an expanding-type fastner.
This product worked incredibly well. Just follow the instructions;- specifically using the right drill size, clearing out the drill holes and observing the curing time, and you will be astounded at the strength of the fixing.
One minor point is that the product will not work successfully with a fix smaller than 8mm. Why? Well, think of the nozzle as an injection needle; in order to fill the hole with resin, you must insert it into the base of the hole before you start pumping. An 8mm fixing requires a 10mm clearance hole, which is (more or less) the diameter of the 'needle'."
