Stainless Steel Reinforcing Bar

Stainless steel reinforcing bar has a wide range of applications when there is a specific requirement relating to corrosion resistance, durability and maintenance. 

Stainless steel reinforcing is typically used in order to ensure a high level of corrosion resistance, usually because future maintenance or repair will be difficult to accomplish & carried out infrequently.

Benefits Of Stainless Steel Bar

  • Corrosion resistant
  • Prevents chloride induced corrosion in reinforced concrete
  • More resistant to abrasion & damage during construction
  • Lower maintenance & repair costs
  • Good when future maintenance or repair access is difficult
  • Excellent for critical corrosion zones
  • Low conductivity & high strength at elevated temperatures
  • Less concrete cover required
  • Can be cut and bent without damaging product

Why Stainless Steel Rebar Is So Effective

The primary driver for using stainless steel reinforcing steel is the ability to be highly resistant to corrosion. If there are areas which will be exposed to corrosive elements, or if access is difficult to achieve then stainless steel is a good option to ensure structure integrity is maintained even in the absence of regular maintenance and repairs being carried out.

Stainless steel is also more durable during the construction process and it less likely to be compromised due to abrasions when compared to galvanised and other coated steel solutions. 

Stainless rebar can be cut and bent without the need to worry about damaging the coating. In contrast when using galvanised rebar, the bars would need to be cut and bent prior to being sent away to be hot dipped galvanised.
