Rebar (also known as Reinforcement Steel Bars) are used extensively in the construction industry for residential and commercial projects, bridges, and several other projects like dams, canals, highways, etc. Rebar is used to improve the tensile strength of the concrete since concrete is very weak in tension and strong in compression. Considering this, the construction sector has implemented the use of rebars to strengthen concrete such as beams and slabs, and this supplements strength of concrete in columns and walls. Rebar makes concrete several times more resistant to failure.

Concrete is sufficiently strong to compression forces by nature, but tension forces can crack it. Rebars are used to help concrete withstand tension forces as it significantly increases the strength of the structure. Rebar is a regular steel bar that is hot rolled and is used as a part of the construction business, particularly for concrete support. Its surface is often deformed to promote a better bond with the concrete. There are different kinds of rebars like carbon steel rebar, glass- fiber reinforced rebar (GFRP), stainless steel rebar, etc.  It is much better for gaining strength and safer in the construction industry.

The combination of steel and concrete helps to create a building material that is far stronger and more flexible than either would be alone. Rebar comes in a wide range of sizes, most commonly from 6mm up to nearly 60mm. When you have larger structures, the thicker types are used as they can support heavier loads. The functions of rebar are:

  • It has ribs that bind it mechanically to solid for better holding of the structure.
  • The common rebar is made of incomplete tempered steel which makes it helpless to rusting.
  • Polymer rebar is used in a highly corrosive environment.
  • Rebar is usually combined with other steel products and reformed to gain extra strength.
  • Coastal regions use galvanized rebar to prolong the life of rebar. Reinforcement Steel Bars are also used in regions where the earth is destructive to give no consumption toughness to the development.

Gulf Steel is ranked as one of the most reputed rebar exporters in the UAE.  They are a leading steel supplier in the UAE that supplies steel products as per industry specifications and dimensions, all of which are customized as per the client’s requirement.
