Epoxy Adhesive and Reinforcing Screws
If it is determined that the use of epoxy and
reinforcing screws are required to effect repair, the screw
holes must be drilled prior to mixing the adhesive.
The screw will be installed after the adhesive
has been inserted into the crack.
The screws generally provide adequate
clamping force. The use of a vise or clamp is optional.
