The scope of application of Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic Bars is quite wide. It covers a number of areas, besides the need to use this technology is motivated by its various qualities. Such qualities include corrosion resistance, dielectric properties, radio transparency, lightness and energy efficiency. In all cases, the use of this type of reinforcing bars is also justified by the economic effect.
In many ways, the working technology is common to any building bars. But some of their properties require other approaches and compliance with other safety measures. Innovations relate to their transportation, uncoiling, cutting, as well as bunching with nylon ties. Due to the reinforcing bars lightness, they are easier and safer to work with, but anyway there are some precautions.
Currently, the professionals in Ukrainian construction industry face serious information gaps with respect to Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic Bars, their use in various structures and calculation methods. In this section, we will try to fill this gap with the publication of regulatory documents of Ukraine, documentation of other countries, information about application experience and testing of this material.
