Some base materials such as brick or stonework, are prone to cracking and crumbling and make drilling close to an edge almost impossible; this is where a chemical or resin fixing will come into its own. They will help you make the most secure attachment and are capable of supporting heavy loads as the stress is distributed the length of the bond which is also watertight.
They are particularly useful when installing gate posts as the continual opening and closing can loosen mechanical fixings and render the gate unsafe. They take a little more skill when installing, but the end result is well worth the effort.
As with most jobs, preparation is key, and it is particularly important when installing a chemical anchor fixing. Before injecting resin into your drilled hole, it is necessary to remove any loose material from it so that this debris doesn’t clog the resin. This is easy to do with a blow out pump.
This blow out pump available from First Fence is manually operated and clears debris out in one plunge, it is the pressure from the pumping action that removes drill cuttings from the hole itself.
The product is lightweight and simple to operate and is perfect for holes 10mm+. It is a very handy tool that will make short work of removing masonry detritus when you have drilled a hole.
