Hilti has launched the most revolutionary adhesive anchor system to date--Hilti HIT-HY 200 Adhesive Anchor System. Inadequately cleaning holes during installation can reduce the performance of conventional adhesive anchor systems significantly. Hilti SafeSet™ Technology eliminates this factor almost entirely and improves reliability and productivity because no manual hole cleaning is required to obtain optimum performance. For holes that clean themselves use the new Hilti TE-CD and TE-YD Hollow Drill Bits in conjunction with the Hilti VC 20/40 vacuum. Dust is removed by the Hilti VC 20/40 Vacuum System while drilling is in progress for faster drilling and a virtually dustless working environment.

No more cleaning after drilling means higher productivity and less cleaning errors. This new method of installation is only allowed with one adhesive in the market- Hilti HIT-HY 200. No cleaning required -The new Hilti HIT-Z, zero cleaning rod with its cone shaped helix works as a torque-controlled anchor. This means that because of their shape, HIT-Z Anchor Rods, when used with HIT-HY 200, the unique shape of the HIT-Z Anchor Rod allows it to be installed in a standard (hammer drilled, dry or water saturated concrete, above 41°F/5°C) un-cleaned hole. The benefits are clear: fewer steps, less equipment and extremely high reliability in anchoring applications. The traditional blow-brush-blow method is also an option.

The current industry standard installation method uses compressed air and a wire brush to clean the drill hole. Like all Hilti adhesive anchors, HIT-HY 200 can be installed using the traditional blow-brush-blow method. Because HIT-HY 200 only requires two blows of compressed air, two brushes and two more blows of compressed air (2x2x2) when using the traditional method, it is still faster to install than other adhesives on the market that require at least a 4x4x4. The blow-brush-blow cleaning technique maximizes the application range for the HIT-HY 200.
