GALVANIZED PROTECTION YOU CAN BEND AND TWIST
GalvaBarTM is galvanized rebar with a specialized thin zinc alloy coating that provides the well-known corrosion protection of zinc and the added benefit of exceptional formability. GalvaBar can be bent, twisted, or stretched after the galvanizing without cracking, peeling or flaking.
A highly automated, propietary process provides comprehensive quality assurance and significant cost efficiencies, including lower material and labor costs. With minimal exposure to the molten zinc bath, the GalvaBar production process can be applied to all grades of steel, providing a consistent coating with no risk of embrittlement. GalvaBar complies with ASTM requirements A-1094/A and A-1094M-16 for continuous hot-dip galvanized steel bars and concrete reinforcement.
Protect and Reinforce
Processed at our facility in Catoosa, Oklahoma, GalvaBar is widely used by the Department of Transportation and the U.S. and Canadian construction and concrete industries for a wide range of applications, including steel reinforced concrete for bridge decks and highways, and precast as well as cast-in-place steel reinforced concrete structures.
GalvaBar is a sustainable material created through an environmentally friendly process free of volatile organic compounds (VOC's) and hazardous air pollutants. Its extraordinary flexibility and durability contribute to the construction of a stronger, safer world.
