Technical Information

Assistance in the application, selection and use of Wilson products is available through the manufacturer or area representatives free of charge.

Composition and Materials
The Wilson Anchor Bolt Sleeve is manufactured of high impact plastic.  It is non-rusting, non-conductive and lightweight.  Single unit construction provides for reduction in installation labor because no welding, threading or cleaning is required.  The configuration is such that the grout and concrete "lock" it in place, providing greater pullout strength than with straight pipes.

Sizes
Available in fifteen standard sizes.  See Table 2:  size schedule (4" and 5" not shown)

Technical Data
See Table 1 for material test data.  Each Sleeve is approximately twice the bolt diameter with a depth of 8 bolt diameters, minimum.

TABLE 1:  MATERIAL AND TESTING DATA

Plastic: High Density Polyethylene
Density, gms/cc: ASTM D 1505-68    .956
Vicat Softening Point °F ASTM D 1525-70    256°F / 124°C  
Brittleness Temperature °F ASTM D 746-70     -180°F/ -118°C 
Torch Application: Slow Burn
Compression Test: 180 psi/12.7 kg/sq.cm

Tests by a state Department of Transportation laboratory indicates that the Wilson Anchor Bolt Sleeve provided greater pullout strength than the regular grout pocket.

The grout pocket was formed in a concrete mass and the sleeve of the same size was cast into the mass.  After curing the concrete, #5 reinforcing bars were set in each pocket, using expanding grout. When cured, both bars were given a tensile load.  The standard pocket failed when the bar with the grout attached pulled out.  The Wilson Anchor Bolt Sleeve retained the grout and failure occurred around the bar. The sleeve remained intact.

When used as a sleeve for anchor bolts the product in in an in-place form and not considered a structural member.

Due to its configuration, 180 psi is the maximum compressive loading.
