is there an concrete epoxy that can be used with regular caulk gun
 
I need to install to Post bases into a concrete slab. Id like to epoxy threaded rods but wondering is there a way to do this without buying the expensive Epoxy gun to do the Job. I think I saw Simpon had a product in a Single Tube is that correct?

Most masonry dealers (they sell blocks and lintels) will carry caulking tubes of epoxy that fit a regular caulking gun.

Yeah, I just picked some up at one of the big chain stores this past weekend. Fits the large caulk gun, which cost about 7 bucks (1qt maybe??)

Think the epoxy itself was about $11-12 tube; only color available was grey.

Well it's actually polyurethane, not an epoxy... Whoops.

And that stuff is found by the masonry supplies in the Lowes near me.

thanks - you saved me a trip :thumbup: about all we can use from those places is 6mil plastic, rolls of perforated hdpe pipe, & marking pencils :laughing: altho we will pick up a small tub of hydraulic cement now & then - that mtl is a sealant w/specific width/height rqmts - its not an adhesive

Hilti HVU chem anchor capsules don't require a gun.

This is what OP is looking for. Uses a standard caulking gun, Iíve used it a few times.
