Wherever there is concrete there is rebar. Traditionally rebar is made from steel – but there are many reasons why the construction industry should be looking to pultruded composite rebars for upcoming projects:
- Composite rebar is lighter than steel
This makes transportation to construction sites easier and more cost-effective than transporting the steel equivalent.
- Composite rebars do not rust
This increased longevity could play an important part in the lifetime of the final project – whether it is concrete support pillars for a bridge or a concrete base for a car park.
Composite Rebar at JEC Paris
Pultrex is part of the KraussMaffei Group, which builds machinery for manufacturing rebar. Both Pultrex and KraussMaffei will be at the rescheduled JEC Paris show from 12 – 14th May 2020 where you will be able to see composite rebar used for concrete reinforcement.
Give our team a call on +44 (0)1206 395559 to register your interest in meeting us at the rescheduled show, or to discuss our pultruded profile capabilities and Pull Winding and Filament Winding Machines.
