Before installing chemical anchors, it is necessary to calculate the amount of material one needs for a job site. If you run out of cartridges during application of threaded rods or rebar, it is helpful to avoid losing time unnecessarily. Additionally, defining the required amounts beforehand can minimize material waste.
To support the calculation process, Sika has developed a volume calculator mobile application. Based on the below parameters, the app defines the required number of cartridges (in all available cartridges), and it also provides the required quantity per one anchor:
- Substrate in which the anchor will be installed (concrete or solid / hollow masonry)
- Anchor type (threaded rod or rebar)
- Hole diameter
- Embedment depth
- Number of anchors
