Standards for Non-Metallic Reinforcing Bars and Their Use in Concrete Structures

As far back as the last century, several countries had been simultaneously developing standards for the production of non-metallic reinforcing bars and their application. Several industries have modified their technical solutions making maximum use of the advantages of non-metallic reinforcing bars such as absence of corrosion, magnetic inactivity and radio transparency. Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, USA, Canada, Italy, Germany, Japan - this is an incomplete list of countries that have focused on the development of the use of Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic Bars..

History of Technology

History of the development of fibreglass and reinforcing bars based on it indicates the high status of research data and their strategic importance for the construction industry. Here you can also find out the actual information about application of the Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic Bars and the branches of development of industrial applications in different countries.

Technical Solutions

In the post-Soviet space, the most of the technical solutions for application of the Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic Bars were based on the recommendations of Concrete and Reinforced Concrete Research Institute named after A.A. Gvozdev (Moscow) in 1978. Here we will present you a set of technical solutions and reinforcement schemes developed by various design organizations of Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, as well as foreign countries.
