Why FRP Rebar

Benefits

  • Impervious to chloride ion and chemical attack
  • Tensile strength is greater that steel
  • ¼ the weight of steel
  • Transparent to magnetic fields and radar frequencies
  • Electrically non-conductive
  • Thermally non-conductive
  • Non corrosive
  • Increase service life

Properties

  • Strength grade is based on ultimate tensile strength of the bar.
  • Lowest grade is 60 ksi
  • Strength is provided on 10 ksi increments
  • Modulus grade corresponds to minimum modulus of the selected bar.
