Do You See Rebar Corrosion?
The TUF BAR Solution Fiberglass Rebar. TUF BAR Ltd. has been supplying the mining; construction and highway with fiberglass rebar and rock bolts. TUF BAR Fiberglass Rebar has developed proprietary processes for unique applications. We develop and produce Fiberglass Rebar and accessories. Tuf-Bar Fiberglass rebar is a stronger and lighter alternative to conventional steel rebar. It is one-fourth the weight of steel, superior in tensile strength, non-magnetic, non-corrosive, and non-conductive. It has a life cycle of more than a century, and is specified for use in roadways, bridges, dams, concrete slabs, barrier walls, marine applications, tunneling and temporary reinforcement, and power generation facilities.
TUF BAR Ltd. uses the highest quality corrosion resistant vinylester resin and fiberglass materials. 15 years of Government and University research has been performed to validate the 100-year sustainability of Fiberglass Rebar in concrete applications. This research led to the publication of theACI 440.1R, CSA S806, CSA S606,and AASHTO GRFP building and infrastructure codes.
