DEFORMED Reinforcing Bar

Deformed steel reinforcing bar has a rougher surface in order to further enhance the bond between the steel bar and the concrete used.

Deformed rebar has a ribbed surface and is used typically to apply tension within reinforced concrete structures because it has a higher tensile strength than regular reinforced steel bar.

Benefits Of Deformed Steel Bar

  • Stronger that other types of reinforcing bar
  • Less material required to create the same strength effect
  • Use in almost any project
  • Suitable for small residential projects
  • Suitable for large commercial & industrial projects
  • Can be delivered in stock lengths for smaller projects

Why Deformed Rebar Is So Effective

The main difference between deformed reinforcing steel bar and regular round steel bar is the surface texture which enables concrete to grip the steel bar more effectively. Once the concrete has set, it also means that the steel bar is much less likely to slip or shift within the concrete as well creating additional stability.

In fact, deformed bar is rated to 500MPa (D500N) as opposed to round (smooth) reinforcing bar which is 250MPa (D250N).
