ARC Manufacturing Reinforcement Bars

Product Description

This corrugated Steel/Reinforcement Bars  is most commonly used in construction for strengthening concrete slabs, walls and for decorative purposes.

Rebar (short for reinforcing bar), also known as reinforcing steel, reinforcement steel, is a steel bar or mesh of steel wires. It is used as a tension device in reinforced concrete and reinforced masonry structures to strengthen and hold the concrete in compression. The surface of Reinforcement Bars is generally patterned to form a better bond with the concrete.

Concrete is a material that is very strong in compression, but relatively weak in tension. To compensate for this imbalance in concrete’s behavior, Reinforcement Bars is cast into it to carry the tensile loads.

Masonry structures and the mortar holding them together have similar properties to concrete. They also have a limited ability to carry tensile loads. Some standard masonry units like blocks and bricks are made with voids to accommodate rebar. This is then secured in place with grout. This combination is known as reinforced masonry.
