BENT REBAR / CURVED REBAR
Bent rebar is used in construction of civil and industrial projects and serves as an addition to straight rebar and other concrete reinforcement agents. Curved rebar retains all the benefits of straight composite FRP/GFRP rebar and just like standard rebar rods is a much more technologically advanced construction product for concrete reinforcement.
Application of bent/curved rebar:
— Civil projects
— Industrial grade projects
— Concrete reinforcement (foundations, concrete blocks, dolos and more)
— Structures located in coastal areas, airports, hospitals, military bases and more
Benefits of FRP bent rebar compared to steel bent rebar:
— Corrosion resistant — FRP rebar, mesh, BE do not rust and are immune to salt ions, chemicals and concrete inherent alcalines.
This is important when you build concrete structures in coastal areas near seas, oceans, lakes and rivers. FRP is not affected by corrosion and this means that concrete won’t crack as rebar will not expand like steel.
— Sustainability — Composite bent rebar is a sustainable solution to steel curved rebar. Its lack of corrosion and use of oil&gas industry waste in manufacturing processes makes for an environmentally friendly product that outperforms steel bent rebar in every test.
— Zero decay — FRP rebar eliminates cracks in the concrete blocks and consequent breaking of structure. Therefore, we extend life expectancy of the blocks and eliminate the need for refurbishment.
Our tests show that concrete structures will remain intact for over 80 years without critical cracks and deformation of the structures that contain FRP rebar.
— Price — Steel has doubled in price since mid 2020, whilst the general market suffers from constant fluctuations. This makes it hard to forecast your steel rebar production prices.
Opposingly, FRP Rebar raw materials have historically been decreasing in price and maintain a stable price behaviour.
— Strength and temperature resistance — The end product of our production lines withstands -70 to +150 degrees Celsius range of temperatures and is 5 times stronger than its steel counterpart.
— Transportation — FRP rebar is over 5 times lighter than steel. This multiplication factor means that you can transport at least 5 times more FRP rebar using the same machinery and transportation techniques as with steel rebar.
— This then becomes an integral part of your cost and profitability calculations, decreasing these factors to minimum.
Fiberglass rods represent an evolution of steel rebar and make the gfrp composite technology applicable in construction in practically every of its deviation. Composite reinforcement is sustainable and shows prevailing results when you choose the right FRP rebar supplier. Alb-Rebar has become the leader in fiberglass rebar equipment manufacturing and now boasts a network of gfrp rebar manufacturers across the globe, which allows us to cover all your composite rebar needs and more.
