Glass-fibre reinforcement bar has several advantages over steel reinforcement:
• 100% stronger
Glass-fibre reinforcement has a tensile strength higher by 2 times than steel reinforcement grade A III with an equal diameter.
• 80% lighter by weight
The density of composite reinforcement is 1.9 tons / m3. This means that it is only 1.9 times heavier than water and 5 times lighter than steel. In an equal strength ratio, the weight of such reinforcement is 9 times less than that of steel.
• More profitable
Using of composite reinforcement bars reduces the cost of construction work. Reducing the cost of building structures is achieved through the use of non-metallic reinforcement of smaller diameters compared to metal reinforcement.
• Not subject to corrosion and decay
Non-metallic reinforcement is absolutely not subject to corrosion and does not cause concrete destruction. In addition, it practically does not change its mechanical properties in an aggressive environment under the influence of acids, alkalis and salts.
• Does not lose properties at extremely low temperatures
Composite reinforcement bars can be used at various temperature conditions (from -70 to +100 degrees Celsius) at the same time, without changing their technical and operational characteristics.
• Low thermal conductivity
The thermal conductivity of composite reinforcement is lower than steel bars by 100 times, it practically does not conduct heat. Accordingly, it cannot be a “Cold Bridge” and significantly reduces heat loss.
• Thermal expansion coefficient same with concrete coefficient
This eliminates destructions of reinforcement and cracking in the concrete layer under the influence of temperature changes.
• Dielectric. Radiolucent. Magnet- inert.
Composite reinforcement bars do not conduct electric current and do not accumulate static energy. Permeable to radio waves. The change in the strength properties of composite reinforcement under the influence of electromagnetic fields is excluded.
• Durable and environmentally friendly
Non-metallic reinforcement increases the service life of structures by 2-3 times compared with steel reinforcement, especially when exposed to aggressive environments. The expensive repairs are not necessary.
