Chemical anchors secure a variety of materials and are used for different applications. They are made from a strong, lightweight material chemically bonded to your object's surface. The chemical reaction created by the anchor will hold it in place for as long as you need it to be.
Types of chemical anchors
There are many different chemical anchors, each with unique benefits. The most common type of chemical anchor is the epoxy anchor. Epoxy anchors are strong and versatile, making them ideal for various applications. Another type of chemical anchor is the resin anchor, which is well-suited for applications requiring high levels of corrosion resistance.
One of The Landscape Store’s top-selling anchors is the Fischer chemical anchor, a versatile injection mortar for cracked and non-cracked concrete, masonry and special applications. This universal anchor is based on vinyl esters with guaranteed reliability in all surface applications.
Choosing the right chemical anchors for different applications
Some chemical anchors can be used on various surfaces, while others are only meant for use on specific materials. Choosing the right chemical anchor is important, as using the wrong type of anchor can result in a weaker bond or even damage the surface to which you're attaching the anchor.
When selecting a chemical anchor, it's important to consider the application's specific requirements. Consider factors such as load capacity, environmental conditions and substrate material to ensure you choose the right one.

What are chemical anchors?
Chemical anchors are tiny molecules that bond to the surface of a material. They work by creating a new surface on top of the material that can be used to attach other materials to it. This makes them popular in industries where strong, durable bonds are needed, such as construction and manufacturing.
How to use chemical anchors?
To use chemical anchors, you should prepare the hole for the stud, bar or rod you're using by predrilling it. Clean the hole with a wire brush, and remove leftover debris with a blower. Start the chemical filling process with the caulking gun by inserting the nozzle inside the hole.
Before the stud dries entirely, you have a little time to tweak it while it's still wet. Apply load after the anchor has dried, depending on the properties of the chemical being used and the surrounding conditions on the day.
How do chemical anchors work?
Chemical anchors create a chemical reaction between the anchor and the surface it's being attached to. This reaction creates a new material stronger than either of the original materials, which helps to hold the anchor in place. There are several different types of chemical anchors, and each is best suited for a particular surface and/or application.
What are chemical anchors used for?
Chemical anchors are used for a variety of different purposes, such as:
Stabilising a structure or object
Providing support to underwater infrastructure
