Adhesive systems must be qualified for recognition under the International Building Code (IBC), and for use with the anchoring to concrete provisions of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318). The International Code Council-Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) Acceptance Criteria for Post-Installed Adhesive Anchors in Concrete Elements (AC308) now includes provisions for qualification of adhesive systems for use with the development and splice provisions of ACI 318. Adhesive systems successfully completing the test program outlined in AC308 Table 3.8 receive recognition under the IBC via an ICC-ES Evaluation Service Report, for use with the development and splice provisions of ACI 318. This means that post-installed reinforcing bars can now be designed with an approved adhesive in the same manner as cast-in-place reinforcement.
