GalvaBar® is galvanized rebar with a zinc alloy coating that provides the well-known corrosion protection of zinc and is readily available in your existing rebar supply chain. GalvaBar® can be bent and fabricated after galvanizing without fear of peeling or flaking.

A highly automated, streamlined continuous galvanizing 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 standard A1094/1094M requirements for Continuous Hot-dip Galvanized Steel Bars for 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 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.


GalvaBar is stocked and readily available, with quick turnaround times on orders. This is made possible by our innovative process which minimizes downtime, eliminates the need for retagging and repackaging and allows for orders to deliver in days, rather than weeks.
