Hilti has recently launched its latest innovation, HIT-CT 100. The new grout is suitable for fastenings in concrete for various applications, including new construction or renovation of commercial properties, housing, public properties and civil engineering projects.
Hilti states that HIT-CT 100 meets the EU’s high requirements for chemical content and therefore requires no chemical training or medical checks for the operator, has no hazard pictograms and can be disposed as normal household waste.
Product development has taken place in close collaboration between Hilti's global development department for chemical fasteners and the Swedish market. An important aspect in the development stage was being able to combine requirements for chemical content with technical requirements for load values and areas of use. HIT-CT 100 can handle M8 to M24 in cracked concrete with mounting depths from 60mm to 480mm. Additionally, an ETA approval for dimensioning according to EN 1992-4 is estimated for February 2024. This is followed up with an ETA for reinforcement jointing according to EN 1992-1-1 in May 2024.
“We are extremely happy to once again be able to launch a product that meets the high environmental requirements on the Swedish market. Since the HIT-CT 100 is suitable for many different assemblies, we are sure that this will become a new customer favourite,” comments Sofia Blidberg, sustainability manager at Hilti.
"Through our Swedish customers' strong focus on sustainable construction, our market is an important source of facts and inspiration when it comes to product development of environmentally friendly products and cooperation on sustainability issues," adds Rickard Bergeryd, codes & approvals manager at Hilti.
HIT-CT 100 is the successor to HIT-CT 1. HIT-CT 1 will be available for a limited transition period.
