There are many advantages compared to steel, which is preferred in the recent construction of reinforced concrete structures, which is produced as an alternative to flat construction steel and which will be used frequently in the construction area in the future.

Composite Rebar, These profiles, which are produced specially with Pultuzyon technique, can be used safely and practically in all kinds of prefabricated and field applied concrete works. Due to the high percentage of fiberglass fibers in the composite composite, they have high mechanical properties. They have 3 times tensile and tensile strength according to steel. They are light, easy to use and resistant to all kinds of environmental conditions such as sea water and chemical materials.

Differences between Rebar and Composite Reinforcement

Resistant to chemicals

Tensile strength is about 2.5 times stronger than rebar.

No magnetic field.

It is 5 times lighter than rebar.

Electrical insulating feature

Significantly reduces labor costs

Provides significant savings in transportation

Non-toxic, environmentally friendly

Not conductive, electrically proof

It does not conduct heat, it is insulator.

More than one hundred years of service life

It adheres well to the concrete thanks to its ribbed surface.

Retains shape without deforming.
