The reinforcing bar consists of a multitude of continuous fibers, oriented in the direction of the load, bonded in a resin matrix.
The production process guarantees the complete impregnation of the glass fibers and an extremely high degree of curing. The fibers provide the longitudinal strength and stiffness of the material. The resin matrix holds the fibers in place, distributes the load and protects the fibers against damaging influences.
The geometry of the ribs and the fact that the ribs are ground into the hardened bar guarantee bond properties which are analogous to those of steel rebar.
Bent bars and stirrups are produced by bending a bundle of glass fibers impregnated with resin. Afterwards these raw bars are thermally cured. This procedure allows for a high fiber content and nearly parallel alignment of fibers in the bent portion of the bars resulting in high strength and a modulus of elasticity similar to that of straight bars.
Bent bars can be produced in all 2D shapes (e.g. z shapes and hat shapes) and 3D bars like spirals can be produced on demand.
Maplad srl design and produces Basalt rebar with vinyl ester matrix. Basalt rebar has a low young’s modulus compared whit steel, but is 15-30% higher that fiber-glass rebar which makes even better than a normal frp rebar. It is strongin tensionand has very little stretch which is apt for permanent applications. Basalt rebar from Maplad works best for a more permanent solution with high performance meets highest sustainability. Basal fibers are 100% natural and inert. They have been tested and proven to be non- carcinogenic and non-toxic and clearly better then fiberglass which is made from a mixture of many ingredients, some of whitc are not environmentally friendly.
High initial cost can be make up for the high strength solution and long run usability. Proven technology being utilized and modified by a proven producer.
HIGH PERFORMANCE FIBERGLASS REBAR
Maplad specializes in high performance frp rebars with heightened proprieties for special applications or for a permanent application. Being non-corrosive and high mechanical properties makes it the builders choice to a rigorous environment.
Maplad builds these rebas with any matrix ranging from epoxy, vinyl or modified polyester resins. Carefully engineered to meet highest standards with utmost quality. Weight to price ratio will be significantly less than a normal steel rebar and considering long run, iBar from Maplad will be the perfect product you are looking for.
GRP rebars are known for their durability but these special iBar will increase the durability but these special iBar will increase the durability to its maximum and guaranteed weather proof solution. It a future proof solutions to a construction.
HIGH PERFORMANCE FIBERGLASS MESH
Maplad designs GFRP mesh with high performance and mechanical properties comparable with steel. Its light and so easy to transport than a steel mesh. Its non-corrosive nature ensures safety to the construction as well as the safety of the worker. Easy to assemble and therefore significantly decrease the overall time consumed. It mingles with soil and concrete easily with high adherence. It can be easily rolled and transported. It is suitable against vibration and resistance to any electro related issues. Moreover, it’s easy to cut than a conventional steel mesh.
