Why Choose Galvanized Rebar?
Superior Corrosion Protection
Unlike painting and epoxy which are solely barrier-type coatings, galvanizing provides both barrier and sacrificial protection to the underlying steel.
History of Performance
Zinc coated steel has been used in concrete as far back as 1908 and found regular use as a reinforcing material in the 1930s.
Unparalleled Bond Strength
Galvanized reinforcement in concrete has much better bond (or pull-out) strength than either black or epoxy coated reinforcement.
Exceptional Life Cycle Cost
When the costs and consequences of corrosion damage to a reinforced concrete structure are analysed, the extra cost of galvanizing is a very small investment in long-term corrosion protection.
No Special Handling
There are no special requirements for the design of galvanized reinforced concrete beyond that which apply to conventional reinforced concrete.
Beauty that Lasts
Galvanized reinforcement ensures a clean appearance of finished concrete by preventing cracking and rust staining, providing lasting beauty for iconic public works like the National Theatre in London and the Sydney Opera House
