The GFRP rebar is a structural ribbed reinforcing bar made of high strength and corrosion resistant glass fibre that are impregnated and bound by an extremely durable polymeric epoxy resin.
This combination equals an engineered material system resulting in unique attributes that replace and supersede typical materials such as galvanized, epoxy coated and stainless steel rebar.
Its characteristic properties are ideal for any harsh and corrosive environments.
GFRP is permanently resistant to chemical acids and alkaline bases, therefore extra concrete cover, anti-shrink additives, and even cathodic protection are not required. GFRP significantly improves the longevity of engineering structures where corrosion is a major factor.
