Using of composite reinforcement
Fibreglass Mesh Application
The significant weight of the steel subsequently leads to a significant weighting up of the entire reinforcement, which is 10 times heavier than the fibreglass analogue.
High susceptibility to corrosion in high-acid or high-alkalinity environment, in turn, leads to activation of chemical reactions, as well as to the destruction of the structure itself.
As for the steel bar it should be noted that it has increased electrical conductivity and electromagnetic susceptibility, greater susceptibility to electrical corrosion.
It also requires costly repairs due to the short useful life of steel bars, which is 2-3 times less than the useful life its composite analogue made of glass and plastic.
Having the same diameter, the weight of Arvit Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic Bars is 4-5 times lighter. Also they are 10 times lighter taking into account their strength compared to their analogue.
Increased resistance to corrosive elements is ensured. Arvit Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic Bars are not exposed to environmental influences or chemicals.
Improved dielectric permittivity and absolute inactivity to electromagnetic radiation is ensured.
High resistance to temperature drops having wide range: from -70 C to +200 C.
Saving of up to 50%
In addition to all of the above advantages, it should also be noted that glass and plastic materials are of no interest to the representatives of scrap metal collection points, which, in turn, reduces to nothing the desire of others to take the reinforcing bars from you.
