Chapter 4, “Preparing the Hole” excerpted from CP-80(12) “Adhesive Anchor Installer Workbook” covers the procedure of preparing the hole for anchor installation; this is an important installation step to ensure a reliable installation. This course is not a certification program. It is further information on installation of adhesive anchors. For certification information go to: www.concrete.org/certification.
