Basalt or Fibreglass FRP Rebar is an outstanding product for concrete reinforcement. It weighs 4 times less than steel rebar and its tensile strength is 3 times higher.
Basalt FRP rebars are manufactured from basalt fibres by pultrusion technology. The surface is profiled and sanded. This kind of surface treatment results in a better adhesion in concrete. Basalt FRP rebar has the same thermal coefficient of expansion as concrete.
Basalt and Fibreglass reinforcement does not rust or absorb water, so the depth of concrete cover can be reduced, allowing for thinner sections and more flexibility of design. BFRP and GFRP rebar is easily cut to length with regular tools. FRP rebar does not conduct electricity or induce fields when exposed to RF energy, great for MRI or data buildings. Basalt and Fibreglass FRP rebar is perfect for Marine environments and Chemical plants where corrosion is a continuous concern.
Tensile strength – 1100 Mpa.
Basalt and Fibreglass FRP composite Rebar is available in 4-40mm diameters.
