GRP Rebar & FRP Rebar

What makes GRP Rebar?

High-quality fibreglass and vinyl ester resins make up our Fibex GRP/FRP Rebar. In our fibreglass rebar, a vinyl ester resin offers 50 years plus resistance to corrosive chemicals compared to polyester resin.

Why choose GRP Rebar & FRP Rebar over Steel Rebar?

Reduced costs:

Our GRP Reinforcement Bar is an excellent alternative to steel reinforcement. The GRP Reinforcement Bar eliminates the risk of corrosion because fibre rebar does not react negatively with concrete surround, reducing the associated costs of a traditionally manufactured reinforcement bar.

With a GRP reinforcement bar, there is no concrete spalling, so protection measures are not needed.

Furthermore, GRP Reinforcement Bar does not need to be earthed. Therefore, if you choose to use a fibreglass rebar,  project time is unaffected, and costs become reduced because there is no need to use earthing materials.

Which industries choose to use GRP Rebar & FRP Rebar? 

Compared to steel rebar, GRP/FRP Rebar is safe to use in electrical environments because it is non-conductive. Therefore, fibre rebar is a popular choice in the power and energy industries, e.g. substations.

What are the advantages of using Fibex GRP Rebar & FRP Rebars?

Fibex GRP Rebar has double the tensile strength of a steel reinforcement bar. Likewise, a GRP/FRP Rebar reinforcement is adaptable – it can be manufactured into various shapes to suit project specifications without weakening the foundational structure.

Consequently, Fibex GRP Rebar Reinforcement offers competitive prices, substantial durability, and long life cycles.

Transportation and delivery:

Fibex GRP Rebar is 70% lighter than the most common alternative, steel. This lighter, cheaper and easily transportable option can be shipped in large quantities without causing any loading issues.

GRP Rebar reinforcement bar is a viable choice because its lightweight characteristic means that machinery is not needed to lift it.

As a result, machinery and health and safety risks become minimised.

An applications overview of GRP Rebar

The design of the Glass fibre-reinforced polymer (GRP) Rebar makes it suitable for heavy load applications. 

For example, bridge projects, highways, industrial sites, underwater structures, tunnels, walls and more.

Suitable environments for Fibex GRP Rebar:

  • Corrosive environments
  • Electromagnetic environments

What are Rebar Ties?

Essentially Rebar ties are reinforced versions of cable ties. They are ideal to use for larger structures because they provide excellent strength, durability and non-corrosive properties.

How do rebar ties work?

Rebar ties are tightened together by pulling inwards, so the GRP rebar lengths can be secured onto a structure or together.

Where can rebar ties be used?

  • Securing rebar to large structures
  •  Underwater structures because steel connectors get corroded by water

These ties come in various lengths and are easily removable.

What other Rebar products do we offer?

We also offer Rebar stop ends. These rebar covers will protect the ends of the rebar and prevent minor cuts and injury.
