  • WHY GFRP REBAR IS SUPERIOR TO STEEL REBAR

2

GFRP Rebar Vs Steel Rebar
GFRP concrete reinforcement is a relatively new
technology that outsmarts traditional steel bars
in many areas weight, tensile strength,
corrosion-resistance, ease of installation,
durability, maintenance, and more.

Limitation With Steel Reinforcement
  • Though steel has been in practice for many years,
    still this material cant resolve long standing
    issues such as corrosion and expensive
    maintenance. Here is why steel is not a good
    choice
  • Steel is heavy and it increases logistic costs
  • Steel rusts which leads to heavy maintenance
    costs
  • Use of steel leads to stiff and rigid structures
  • Steel offers limited fatigue resistance

Maintenance Costs
High maintenance costs is one of the prime
concerns when it comes to concrete infrastructure
in North America and across the globe. While GFRP
construction products are rust-free and durable,
they dramatically reduce maintenance costs over
the life cycle of a project.

Why Choose GFRP Rebar?
  • GFRP concrete reinforcement offers numerous
    advantages and resolves many problems that steel
    cant. Here is why governments and bridge
    production should promote the use of innovative
    GFRP reinforcement
  • GFRP bars are lightweight which leads to ease of
    installation
  • High strength-to-weight ratio
  • Low maintenance costs
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Electromagnetic neutrality
