New Isolation System
Ancon’s stainless steel tension system is now supplied with isolation materials as standard.
This new isolation system enables stainless steel tie bars to be fixed to a connecting plate of a dissimilar metal. By separating the two metals, bi-metallic corrosion is avoided.
The components of a tie bar in contact with the plate are the fork connector and the fixing pin.
Each Ancon stainless steel fork connector is now supplied with two clear, self-adhesive, PET (polyester) washers. These washers should be applied to either side of the plate, around the fixing hole, prior to the installation of the fork.
Stainless steel pins now feature a PTFE coating around the barrel.
Ancon are pleased to confirm that we are now Associate Members of Think Brick Australia in support of their aim to inspire contemporary brick architecture and building design in all areas of the built environment including commercial, residential and landscape.
Ancon will be exhibiting at the 29th Biennial Concrete 2019 Conference, between 8-11 September in Sydney, where we will showcase a range of high integrity steel fixings engineered specifically for structural concrete construction.
