Rebar, or Reinforcing Bar, is a stainless steel made of steel wires often used because of its strength and durability.
Rebars are used heavily in the construction industry, to strengthen concrete slabs and limit cracking. All of Metals4u Reinforcing bar is provided in 304 stainless steel.
Rebars are used as a tension device in concrete to strengthen and hold structures. They are immersed into the 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 changes in temperature.
Metals4u Reinforcing Bars are available in various sizes ranging from 8mm to 25mm to suit each individual requirements.
