Why Choose Galvanized Rebar?
Superior Corrosion Protection
History of Performance
Zinc coated steel has been used in concrete as far back as 1908 and found regular use as a reinforcing material in the 1930s.
Unparalleled Bond Strength
Galvanized reinforcement in concrete has much better bond (or pull-out) strength than either black or epoxy coated reinforcement.
Exceptional Life Cycle Cost
No Special Handling
Beauty that Lasts
