Reinforcing bar sometimes known as Rebar for short, is a is a steel bar of steel wires. This is often used due to it having strong robust qualities. It is often used as a tension device in concrete to strengthen and hold structures. The Rebar is immersed into concrete as the concrete sets and dries out it then grips the reinforcing bar tightly allowing stresses to be transmitted between the two materials, these can then take some tensile loads and reduce bending. The coefficient of thermal expansion of steel is very close to that of concrete, reducing internal stresses caused by changed in temperature. Reinforced steel bar is used heavily in the construction industry, to strengthen concrete slabs and limit cracking.
Our Reinforcing bar is available in various sizes ranging from 8mm to 24mm to suit each individual requirements. The grade of reinforcing bar we supply is grade 500B.
