GFRP

composite rebar

About

Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) is a heavy-duty composite reinforcement bar that has proven to be a successful and economical alternative over traditional concrete reinforcement.

GFRP is a structural ribbed reinforcement bar manufactured from high strength and corrosion free glass fiber, impregnated and coated with an extremely durable polymer based epoxy resin. 

GFRP is impervious to moisture and highly resistant to chemical acids and alkaline bases, making it ideal for engineering structures where weather and corrosion are major factors.

Its tensile strength is 3 times more than Steel and is 10 times lighter in comparison per meter, making it the perfect reinforcement choice. 

Diameters range from 4 mm to 40 mm.
