Fiber reinforced polymer rebar
from 4 mm to 40 mm in diameter

Fiber reinforced polymer rebar

Fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) rebars are the most popular and up-to-date construction materials widely known in many countries. This is attributable to the fact that glass fiber has a number of advantages as compared to steel rebars. As known at first hand, steel rebars are very heavy, which is more labor-consuming and requires more time in the course of installation. In addition, they are corrodible, which may result in premature deterioration of concrete structures. In its turn, FRP rebars weigh less and are more resistant to chemical attack, thus, their use in construction is more cost-efficient.
Kremex, LLC has expertise in production and supply of Glass Fiber and Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer Rebars.

Advantages of fiberglass rebars

Cost efficient
Benefit from 60% when steel rebars are equally replaced with composites ones

Corrosion resistance
100% non-corrosive. Waterproof, not susceptible to corrosion and not causing concrete destruction

Seamless
Fiberglass rebars are made with wires or tied up with plastic anchors

Lifetime
Making useful life of a structure 2 or 3 times longer (by 50-80 years). Making expensive repair works unnecessary

Low weight
Decreasing cost of transportation and materials handling, making works performance on-site easier, in 9 times lighter than metal

Radiolucent
Not forming a screen or noise for radio waves, mobile communications and wi-fi

Thermal resistance
Retaining the same performance properties from - 70 to +200°C, which excludes cracks formation

Thermal conductivity
100 times less that of steel rebars, which significantly reduces heat losses

Eco-friendly
Not releasing hazardous or toxic substances. Compliant with all European standards. No damage to the environment

Strength
Having similar diameter, fiberglass rebar is 2-2.5 times stronger than steel one

Any length
At the customer's request, as opposed to steel rebars, 6 or 12 meters

Dielectric
Electrically non-conductive, electrically safe

Comparative Analysis of Steel and Fiberglass Rebars

Strong, low-weighted and non-corrosive fiberglass rebars have already gained their popularity among professional construction workers. However, many specialists, who got used to work with classic steel rebars, are often doubtful that steel may be fully replaced with glass fibre or basalt fibre polymer rebar. These concerns arise due to lack of information on capabilities and features of composites. To fill this gap, we provide comparative analysis of steel and fiberglass rebars by parameters being most essential in construction. Options for equal-in-strength replacement of metal with fiberglass reinforcement The concept of equal-strength replacement is the replacement of reinforcement made from steel with reinforcement made from fiber-reinforced polymer materials, which have the same tensile strength. By equal-strength diameter of fiberglass reinforcement, we mean its outer diameter at which the tensile strength will be equal to the strength of its metal counterpart of a given diameter. Replacement data is shown in the table:
