This includes the Unibar® Centralizer products, which are specifically designed for the installation of soil nails and related earth retention elements.
Rigorously tested and proven for reliability, Pieresearch products are manufactured in the US to meet the highest quality standards set by the Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute and American Concrete Institute. Like other solutions from Simpson Strong-Tie, these rebar alignment and centralizer products are widely available and backed by expert service and technical support.
In addition, Simpson Strong-Tie will launch the
3G family of epoxy and hybrid-acrylic anchoring adhesives

The lineup comprises SET-3G™ epoxy, the company’s most versatile adhesive with ultimate bond strength for heavy-duty, structural work; ET-3G™ epoxy for general rebar doweling and threaded rod; and fast-curing AT-3G™, a hybrid acrylic that allows same-day bolt-up in a wide range of temperatures, including extreme cold.
