G&B Gebofix EPO Plus Epoxy Adhesive
Product Category: Bolting Accessories
Gebofix EPO Plus Epoxy Adhesive is a high-bond strength glue, which is ideally suited to rock climbing in all temperature zones to give you maximum safety when using glue-in anchors or to help strengthen weak rock holds.
Hilti RE 500 is a popular fastening adhesive used for glue-in anchors, but it can be expensive and its delivery system is prone to rupturing. The G&B Gebofix EPO Plus epoxy adhesive dispenser system uses solid plastic cartridges that eliminate the need for foil pack inserts, not least split foil packs and adhesive loss.
A rugged screw cap seals new cartridges, which can be easily opened (especially when wearing gloves) by untwisting without forceful ejection of components. This pure epoxy has high bond strength, making it an excellent choice for any glue-in anchor to be used for rock climbing. The adhesive can be used for reinforcing weak holds.
Gebofix epoxy’s thicker consistency is easier to manage, and it’s less prone to dripping. Additionally, the natural stone colour avoids the gradual colour change that often occurs when using Hilti RE 500. A 585ml pack can typically fasten over 30 Titan Climbing ‘Eterna’ anchors and at least 35 of the 6mm x 80mm twist leg anchors.
