Introducing the XTR Extreme Hybrid chemical anchor 25 October 2023

G&B FISSAGGI, the Italian manufacturer of construction fixings, has once again expanded its product portfolio with the introduction of the XTR Extreme Hybrid chemical anchor. 

Renowned for offering products of the highest quality and certified performance, G&B FISSAGGI has established itself as a manufacturer of nylon fixing systems, as well as steel and chemical anchors for many fields, such as ironmongery, hardware, construction building, engineering industry, electric, thermo-hydraulic and self-service stores.

The newest addition to the company’s portfolio is the chemical anchor XTR Extreme Hybrid, available in 300ml and 410ml cartridges, which is ETA certified Option 1 (EAD 330499-01-0601) for cracked and non-cracked concrete and is approved in seismic performance categories C1, for M8 – M16 threaded rods, and seismic C2, for M12 – M16 threaded rods. 

The anchor is vinylester-based and guarantees maximum safety for structural applications and very high performance even in critical areas. It is approved also for post installed rebar connections and for application in water filled holes. Moreover, the XTR is ETA certified for masonry (solid brick, hollow brick, autoclaved aerated concrete), complies with LEED requirements and has the A+ category for low emission components (VOC). The XTR is the latest addition to the GEBOFIX CE option 1 approved range of vinylester-based and epoxy-based anchors, which are also available for applications at low temperature (GEBOFIX VE-SF NORDIC).

Another key aspect to G&B FISSAGGI’s product portfolio is its nylon anchors range, which includes the GX-L nylon CE, an ETA certified extended plug (ETA – 12-0261) for applications in solid and hollow substrates (concrete, solid brick, hollow brick). The GX-L nylon can be used in thicknesses up to 190mm and is available in diameters of 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and lengths up to 260mm. It can be supplied with different types of screws, including A4 stainless steel.
