Concrete is an ideal building material for many applications. Composite rebar material is used increasingly to further enhance concrete’s physical properties. Composites can protect concrete from the elements extending a structure’s useful life. Composites can also allow greater structural loads and eliminate electrical conductivity.


Properties and Benefits

  • 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
  • Bar Sizes
  • 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
  • Thermally non-conductive
  • Electrically non-conductive
  • Non-corrosive
  • Increase service life
