- Chemical bolts into a cavity wall any experience.
Has anybody got any experience of putting chemical bolts into a cavity wall. I need to put a few M8 studs into a cavity block wall. I can see that you can buy sleeves to help retain the cement into the correct place but it looks like I need to drill something like a 16mm hole for an M8 stud which seems a bit extreme is this correct. If it was a solid hole the advice I had was just to drill a 9 or 10mm hole for the M8 stud.
I was planning to use this adhesive from screwfix. https://www.screwfix.com/p/easyfix-kem-psc-380-ef-polyester-resin-380ml/1245jPosted 1 month agoleffeboySubscriber
As above. I have used them in crumbly plaster rather than cavity block wall and they are incredible. I sized down to the minimum required to get the sleeve in as the blowing out dust tended to make the holes larger in the plaster. They are pricey but they are now my go-to anywhere that is a bit difficult. At M8 you might not even need the sleevePosted 1 month ago
