Got a recommendation? I was thinking E 120HP?
H8600 shows shear on aluminum of 4,500 psi.
E120HP shows shear on aluminum 4,800 psi.
Either resin would be just fine to use.
The H8600 has an open time of 10 to 15 minutes and fixes in about 45 minutes.
The E120HP has an open time of about 120 minutes and fixes in about 2.5 to 3 hours.
Whichever resin you choose, make sure to either sandblast or grind the areas to be bonded to show a near white metal finish to ensure you have the greatest anchor profile.
You'll have to buy the resin, and mixing nozzles. I don't know where you're from, but if I know the Locite guy in your area, he just might loan you his dispense gun to keep you from buying one.
