Glass Fibre Reinfoced Polymers ( GFRP) Rebar, Mesh and Stirrups are made of continuous glass fibres embedded in a polymeric resin matrix and additives. Composite materials are developed for use in many structural applications with the major advantages:
DURABLE & CORROSION FREE
GFRP will not rust, even in the harshest environments. It does not react to salt ions, chemicals or the alkaline present in concrete.
SUPERIOR TENSILE STRENGTH
GFRP can withstand the tensile strenth testing result as much as 3 times greater than the metal rebar when compare with the same size.
NON-CONDUCTIVE TO ELECTRICITY & HEAT
GFRP is highly efficient to resisting heat transfer applications and does not create a thermal bridge within structures. This is a key benefit in order ro provide a safe working environment
GFRP is considered 4x lighter than the steel, it means faster installation, less structureal framing and lower shipping cost.
