Title: Rebar Detailing Service

Types of Rebar Detailing
9 - Types of Rebar Detailing Services
  • Rebar is a short word commonly used in
    construction meaning Reinforcing Bar. Concrete
    alone can withstand compression forces but it
    cannot withstand tension forces. So, rebar which
    is a type of reinforced material is used in place
    of concrete. More commonly used reinforcing
    material is steel. However, other materials like
    aluminium can also be used for reinforcement.
    Based on the specification, use, and application,
    rebar can be classified as follows
  • Carbon Steel Rebar
  • Welded Wire Fabric Rebar
  • Sheet-Metal Rebar
  • Epoxy-coated Rebar
  • European Rebar
  • Stainless Steel Rebar
  • Galvanized Rebar
  • Expanded Metal/Wire Mesh Rebar
  • Glass-Fiber-Reinforced-Polymer Rebar

Carbon Steel Rebar
  • Also known as Black Bar, this type of rebar is
    most common of its types. The advantage of carbon
    steel rebar is its versatility. For the
    structures that are constantly exposed to
    humidity or water, this type of rebar cannot be
    used as it gets corroded easily. Apart from this
    usage, carbon steel rebars are considered to be
    the best option.

Welded Wire Fabric Rebar
  • A series of steel wires are welded together at
    right angles to form welded wire fabric rebar.
    They are welded electrically at the wire
    crossings. The welded wire fabric is also called
    WWF. This rebar is used in walls, and floor slabs
    where the ground is compacted. Such rebars are
    widely used for road pavement, box culverts,
    concrete canals, and drainage structures.

Sheet-Metal Rebar
  • This type of rebar is made from sheets of steel.
    Firstly, the steel pieces are heated and then
    allowed to cool down to prepare a sheet. The
    sheet is bent into corrugations with holes
    punched at regular intervals. It is used for
    floor slabs, roof, and stairs.

Epoxy-coated Rebar
  • Epoxy is a type of material, a polymer that is
    used as a coating. This coating prevents
    corrosion of the rebar. Hence, it is also very
    expensive to use this type of rebar. An
    epoxy-coated rebar is used in areas that require
    corrosion resistance from salt water. The coating
    is generally very thin, and hence it must be
    purchased from an authenticated supplier.

European Rebar
  • Europen rebar is a cost-effective alternative to
    other rebar types. However, it cannot be used for
    areas that are prone to bad weather conditions
    like earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes, etc.

Stainless Steel Rebar
  • Stainless steel rebar is a good alternative to
    carbon steel rebar. It is galvanic resistant and
    hence used extensively in corrosion prone areas
    or where the repair work cannot be done time and
    again. However, it costs as much as eight times
    more than epoxy-coated rebar.

Galvanized Rebar
  • Galvanized rebar are specifically used for highly
    corrosive areas. It provides 40 times more
    protection than carbon steel rebar. However, they
    are one of the costliest rebar types.

Expanded Metal/Wire Mesh Rebar
  • Expanded metal rebar is made by shearing a sheet
    of steel into parallel lines. This is then
    expanded to form a diamond shape or square shape.
    It is commonly used in areas where a considerable
    thickness of plaster is required. Wire mesh is
    used for sidewalks, small concrete pads or
    walkable surfaces.

Glass-Fiber-Reinforced-Polymer Rebar
  • GFRP rebars will never ever corrode under any
    circumstances. Against this, it is also very
    costly. It costs as much as 10 times the
    epoxy-coated rebars.
