Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) Rebar is a composite material made from polymer matrix reinforced and synthetic amalgamated material of plastic and extremely fine fiber of glass

What is Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) Rebar?

Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) Rebar is a Non-ferrous composite reinforcing bar (Rebar).

GFRP is used as an alternative material to the steel rebar. It is non-corrosive, lightweight, superior tensile strength and a lot more

Installation of the GFRP rebar is similar to steel rebar, but with less handling, transporting and storage problems.

•Best use for structures such as bridges, highways, waterways, traffic railings and other marine structures. And can be used for building structures such as slabs, walls, beams etc.

What is a Rebar?

Rebar (short for reinforcing bar), is a steel bar used as a tension device in reinforced concrete and reinforced masonry structures to strengthen and aid the concrete under tension. Concrete is strong under compression but has weak tensile strength. Rebar significantly increases the tensile strength of the structure. Rebar's surface features a continuous series of ribs, lugs or indentations to promote a better bond with the concrete and reduce the risk of slippage.

Why GFRP Rebar for today’s infrastractures?

High cost of maintenance, replacement & expansion of infrastructures

Mainly because of corrosion which is expensive to repair

Safety of infrastructures

Cost efficient or cost effective

Longer Lifespan, 50 to 100 years
