Fiberglass (Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic) rebar is made of high strength glass fibers along with an extremely durable resin. Developed as a superior alternative to steel in concrete reinforcement, FRP Rebar is used to reinforce concrete in applications where concrete is exposed to water, salt water, or chemical environments.
■ Non-Corrosive – will not corrode exposed to a wide variety of corrosive elements including chloride ions.
■ High Strength-to-Weight Ratio – provides good reinforcement in weight sensitive applications.
■ Non-Conductive – provides excellent electrical and thermal insulation.
■ Excellent Fatigue Resistance – performs very well in cyclic loading situations.
■ Good Impact Resistance – resists sudden and severe point loading.
■ Magnetic Transparency – not affected by electromagnetic fields; excellent for use in MRI and other types of electronic testing facilities.
■ Light Weight – easy to be transported, no need for lifting equipment, saving high machine and manual cost.

Fiberglass rebar production uses pultrusion molding process. It’s mainly longitudinal enhancement. Fiber content is 50% ~ 65%. In the past 10 years, fiberglass reinforced rebar has effectively replaced steel rebar in many projects, especially with the price advantage, its application is increasing.
Because the fiberglass reinforced rebar structure and corrosion resistance, which is especially suitable for underground engineering, offshore concrete structures and area. For some special building facilities, such as magnetic resonance imaging room in the hospital or by radio frequency technology to identify prepaid customers highway toll station channel, FRP rebar is the best choice. The FRP rebar has excellent electromagnetic wave permeability. In addition, the light weight property (approximately 1/4 of steel rebar) and adiabatic also makes it more and more popular.
Fiberglass reinforced rebar is generally made of E glass fiber and vinyl ester resin. There are also examples of the use of ECR glass fiber. Vinyl ester is a highly durable system, recommended for excellent structural integrity & high alkali resistant properties. In addition to vinyl ester, polyester, epoxy and phenolic resin also can be used for production.
