In a short interview, Dr. Thilo Pregartner, Head of Technology Transfer & Approvals, provides helpful expertise on our FIS EM Plus epoxy resin mortar.
For what applications does an injection mortar need a service life of 100 years and why does the FIS EM Plus even have 120 years?
Which additional product features are particularly helpful for the installer?
The answers to all these questions can be found in the expert interview.
The fischer injection systems are not only developed in Germany, but also manufactured in Germany. From the development of the formulation in the in-house laboratory to the mixing of the ingredients and the injection of the specially developed cartridges, everything is manufactured in one plant in the south of Germany.
The close coordination of the individual teams ensures continuous quality control and perfectly coordinated production processes. The many fischer subsidiaries enable us to react to customer needs and changing market conditions at short notice. In addition to the external ETA and ICC tests, the products are also tested in our own test laboratory after each production step, e.g. by means of pull-out tests. Thus the fischer injection systems meet the highest quality requirements
In the ETA assessments, anchorages and post-installed rebar connections can be regulated with a service life of up to 100 years.
However, the FIS EM Plus can do more. An official expert report from the IEA Stuttgart even confirms a service life for anchorages up to 120 years. Thus, our FIS EM Plus injection mortar endures an entire century and is perfectly suited for large and long-lasting construction projects.
The FIS EM Plus injection mortar is available in three different cartridge sizes. Thus, the optimal cartridge is available for every application.
The right dispenser (dispenser | fischer) ensures precise dosing and maximum installation comfort. The FIS DCD S battery-operated dispenser (dispenser battery-operated | fischer) is especially suitable for larger drill holes.

For chemical fixings, the modules MORTAR-FIX (fischer design software MORTAR-FIX | fischer), C-FIX (fischer design software C-FIX | fischer), REBAR-FIX (fischer design software REBAR-FIX | fischer) and RAIL-FIX (fischer design software RAIL-FIX | fischer) are particularly important.
Far - Further - the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge. 20 times as long as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, it serves as an over-water crossing for ten thousands of people every day.
Designed for a service life of 120 years, FIS EM Plus was convincing thanks to its durability. The product was also used because of its suitability for anchorages in seacoast regions and post-installed rebar connections.
Bigger than any building in Baden-Württemberg: with the lift test tower, thyssenkrupp Elevator AG literally provides the new highlight in the popular region of southern Germany.
In order to fix this construction securely to the ground, our FIS EM Plus was used in zone 1, the area from 0-27 m.
High above: India's "Statue of Unity" is 182 meters tall, surpassing every statue in the world. Visitors can look far out through openings from the viewing platform at chest level of the "Statue of Unity".
FIS EM Plus scored with high load-bearing capacity in concrete as well as applicability in earthquake areas and gives the "colossus" a strong hold.
The 426.5-metre-long St. Pauli Elbtunnel has connected the northern harbour edge of the St. Pauli Landing Bridges with the Elbe island of Steinwerder for over 100 years.
As part of the tunnel renovation, the stairways for pedestrians were rebuilt. Our FIS EM Plus injection mortar provides earthquake-proof support for the 20-metre-high construction.
