What are Chemical Anchors?
Chemical Anchors are accessories used as fastening bolts for concrete and comparatively offer more extensive adaptability than other anchors. Chemical anchors or chemical studs play a vital role in construction sites. They are placed at the concrete substrate edges, along with masonry blocks.
Chemical anchors comprise an expanding property that comparatively minimizes concrete cracking. These types of anchors are exceptional for using on rails, concrete stairs, shallower slabs, and similar substrates. Chemical anchoring, in brief, minimizes potential risks while securing different construction substrates. Moreover, chemical anchors, unlike mechanical anchors, can help make flexible adjustments to the alignment of the studs.
How do they work?
While using Chemical anchors, a distinctive epoxy is injected before inserting the stud. The chemical works to fill the prominent gaps of the stud. The hole becomes airtight and provides it with additional adhesive property for making it more sturdy and accessible. Concrete anchoring is one of the most fundamental tasks performed in a construction site. Chemical anchoring generally consists of two different installation steps.
- Hole preparation- Initially, drilling the hole to an appropriate and precise depth is essential. Next, all the holes are cleaned thoroughly to eliminate debris wax, dirt, and oil.
- Dispensing- After deliberately cleaning the hole, one should carefully insert the epoxy through a systematic procedure, along with mixing the chemical properly.
Variants offered by Fischer

Applications of Chemical Anchors
Most often, different types of anchoring are installed in heavy-load bearing and critical construction sites. The exceptional high-bond systems are successful in obtaining the highest bond values. Due to this, only limited points and small anchor plates will be required. The variants can primarily be used for-
- Steel constructions
- Guard rails
- Column bases
- Removable fixings
- Temporary fixings, e.g., for machines
- Scaffold anchoring
Chemical Anchors unquestionably secure an efficient foundation on different applications. View the range of variants of Fischer to understand how effectively their chemical anchors work to help you make a secure foundation for construction purposes.
