Climbing Bolts - Is Expired Glue Dangerous???

DON'T use expired glue that other people are going to depend their lives on. This test and our others is just to see what the limits are in case someone does. We have not seen lower results because of expired epoxy from Hilti v3 500 or in this video Dewalt AC100 Gold+. The chemicals seem to separate and are not mixed correctly during the first few squirts from the gun. Be sure your adhesive is mixed correctly as that is the number 1 concern about it becoming unsafe.

We pulled 10mm Solid Leg Bolts in tension and we got 42.26kn, 39.76kn, 37.24kn. Super Good enough.

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
