Drill and Bond Dowel (Chemical Adhesive), DBCA, intended for structural applications, such as for bonding threaded rods and/or rebar into holes drilled in hardened concrete, must comply with ACI 355.4 and be installed in accordance with ACI 318 design standards. Chemical adhesive specifications are in Sections 41-10 and 51-1 of the 2018 Standard Specifications. Do not use DBCA in overhead applications where the anchor is subjected to sustained tension. Unless otherwise stated, the testing in the table below was evaluated with holes drilled with a hammer drill and carbide bit.
