GRP Rebar – Sanded Finish

Alcomet supply GRP/FRP Reinforcing Bar (or Rebar) for use within concrete structures.

Fibre reinforcement bar is made from high strength glass fibre reinforced with vinyl ester resin. As an additional feature to our GRP Rebar the surface can be given a sanded finish for increased surface area for adhesion to the concrete. Our standard size available in this finish is 28mm diameter but other sizes can be supplied on request.

Benefits for using GRP over traditional steel reinforcements include:

  • GRP Rebar is non conductive which is beneficial within electrical installations such as substations.
  • GRP Rebar doesn’t need earthing in electrical applications unlike tradition steel reinforcement.
  • GRP Rebar is non-corrosive which can vastly increase the lifespan of the concrete structures, saving time and money.
  • GRP Rebar is only 25% of the weight of steel alternatives allowing faster more cost effective installation and also making it a much more environmentally friendly alternative.
  • GRP Rebar tensile strength is equal to or exceeds that of equivalent steel.

The stock rebar is supplied in it’s natural unpigmented colour of the resin/glass composite which is a translucent beige and in a standard 5 metre length. Other colours and sizes can be made to order on request.
