New Isolation System
Ancon’s stainless steel tension system is now supplied with isolation materials as standard.
This new isolation system enables stainless steel tie bars to be fixed to a connecting plate of a dissimilar metal. By separating the two metals, bi-metallic corrosion is avoided.
The components of a tie bar in contact with the plate are the fork connector and the fixing pin.
Each Ancon stainless steel fork connector is now supplied with two clear, self-adhesive, PET (polyester) washers. These washers should be applied to either side of the plate, around the fixing hole, prior to the installation of the fork.
Stainless steel pins now feature a PTFE coating around the barrel.
Ancon will be launching its latest fixing innovations at Ecobuild 2018, including extensions to its unique Teplo range of low thermal conductivity wall ties manufactured from basalt fibres.
2017 was another busy year for Ancon, so in case you missed anything, our new products, approvals and company news are all summarised here.
