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 bar has been developed as a non-corrosive alternative to steel for concrete reinforcement.
FRP bar 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

ICC-ES® is the leading evaluation service for innovative building materials, components and systems. ICC-ES® Evaluation Reports (ESRs), Building Product Listings and PMG Listings provide evidence that products and systems meet requirements of codes and technical standards worldwide, including the US, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and the MENA region. ICC-ES® is a member of the ICC family of solutions.
Alkali Resistant Glass Fibers designed and manufactured to easily be incorporated into concrete mixes. Their properties allow them to reduce/prevent cracks in concrete structures with a longer durability compared to steel.
Easily applied with Epoxy adhesive, these light, durable and resistant Carbon straps are ideal to fill crack and eliminate infiltrations. Other applications include reinforcing a concrete structure, increasing its load capacity, or repairs.
Evaluated on various criteria such as color, type, tensile strength, compression strength, tensile modulus and shear strength, find the type that fits best your project needs or contact us so we can make the best recommendation for your requirements.
SFTec successfully completed the ISO9001 quality system, ISO1400, CE, ICC-ES® and MA certifications.
