I am guessing that it is for attaching something to a concrete floor?

Commonly called a quick bolt

Drill a hole, give it a tap and you're GTG

They had a bucket of fasteners for $25 and the new Menards in my area. I got about 40-50 pounds of assorted nuts, bolts, washers, nails and screws. I only got one of the above but more of the female ones that you put in the floor and then screw in a bolt.

108 4" lag bolts with nuts and washers (flats and locking)
58 1 1/4" chromed nuts, good for paracord projects.
about 15# of assorted nuts and washers. dozens of wing nuts.
I'm happy.

It's a 'qwik bolt'. You don't need epoxy. Once its drilled deep enough, you put a washer and nut on it, and tighten as much as possible. The nut pulls the bolt up, spreading the wedge anchor and securing the bolt.

Some call them Hilti bolts because that is the company that makes the drill most people use to put holes in concrete. lol

Make sure you have the proper set tool for them. You don't just drill a hole, drop the anchors in (we called them shields), and walk away. You have to hammer the bullet in, so it spreads the anchor. You can make do with anything that fits through the hole, but it's got to be strong enough to be hit HARD with a hammer. I'm sure you can look around the store or online, or see if anyone who does construction has a spare laying around.

Here are some step by step instructions that are exactly how I was taught to use them. However, I can't speak to any local code requirements.

Every jurisdiction I've worked in seems to have their own requirements in addition to the UBC, etc.

Last ones I used was to mount a fireplace mantle on the brick and mortar. when installed correctly, they will support or fix in place almost anything

While proprietary bolts may need a special tool, like redheads, that's a generic wedge bolt. As said you just drill a hole, stick it in, then pull it up using a nut to wedge.
A guy i knew once did this in a control room under a computer floor. The dust set off a smoke detector that would have shut down the whole plant and set off a halon flood but there was a 30 second delay, enough time to shut off the alarm. Big trouble anyway.
If you're going to use epoxy, might as well use much cheaper threaded rod instead of anchor bolt.

The only times I used epoxy are when the job specifically called for it, and then it was nothing but threaded rod. Epoxy is supposed to be even stronger than any mechanical anchor, when properly installed. But I've personally seen epoxied anchors pull right out, wiggle, or otherwise loosen, even when properly installed.

He just asked what it was, not the debate on whether to epoxy or not... to each his own.

Gotta discuss the finer points once the question is answered.

That is the missing piece to my flux capacitor. If I could just have it back I'll go fix a bunch of stuff.

There are a lot better options these days. If you are considering fastening to concrete, masonry consider the range of concrete screws that are available. Much quicker and easier to use.
