FRP (Fiberglass Reinforced Polymer) is a composite material made of a polymer matrix reinforced with fibers. The fibers are usually glass (in fiberglass), basalt, carbon, or aramid. The polymer is usually an epoxy, vinyl ester, or polyester thermosetting plastic. FRP rebar has been developed as a non-corrosive alternative to steel for concrete reinforcement. FRP rebar is suitable for any structural or architectural application where a material that is corrosion resistant, lightweight, or non-conductive is required.
• Tensile Strength is Greater than Steel
• Electrically and thermally non-conductive
• Transparent to Magnetic Fields & Radar Frequencies
• Extremely Lightweight – 75% Lighter than Steel Rebar
• Will Never Corrode – Conservative Estimates Indicate Longevity Over 100 Years
