5 Types of Rebar that Increase Tensile Strength of Concrete Construction

What concrete offers in compressive strength, it lacks in ductility. Unsupported, it can bear fairly heavy loads without cracking, but if poured using rebar construction, concrete can take considerably more load, even when suspended. Steel bars offer the best reinforcement properties for structural concrete than any other type of material. This is because steel possesses significant […]

How Stainless Steel Rebar is Used in Reinforced Concrete Construction

At first blush, it may seem that stainless steel rebar would be far too expensive for use in any large concrete structure. Why go to such expense when ordinary rebar has worked so well for so long? In certain applications, though, the end result over the life cycle of the edifice can mean greater economy when stainless steel […]

What Is Rebar Fabrication and What Is It Used For in Colorado?

What do you get when you combine the compressive strength of concrete with the tensile properties of steel? Answer: A marriage made in heaven. These two impressive building materials are the superheroes of construction, each with their unique powers. However, used alone, the brittle nature of concrete can mean an early structural demise under constant […]
