REBAR

LESS WEIGHT.
MORE STRENGTH™.

PINKBAR™ Fiberglas™ Rebar is a high quality, cost-effective reinforcement solution for flatwork

  • Stronger than steel rebar in tensile
  • Non-corrosive for longer service life of concrete
  • Tested and certified to ASTM D7957
  • Industry-leading Advantex® boron-free ECR fibers
  • Epoxy resin for increased durability compared to other composite rebar
  • Proprietary sand coating for superior bond strength to concrete

#3 PINKBAR™ FIBERGLAS™ REBAR REPLACES #4 STEEL REBAR IN FLATWORK

Compared to #4 steel rebar, #3 PINKBAR™ offers more strength and the same shrinkage crack mitigation you would expect at a fraction of the weight and lower cost.

Applications

PINKBAR™ Fiberglas™ Rebar for Flatwork is intended for slab on ground applications such as:

  • parking slabs
  • drive-ways
  • sidewalks
  • agricultural flats
  • Continuous Reinforcement Concrete Paving (CRCP) for streets

PINKBAR™ Fiberglas™ Rebar is not intended for use as reinforcement for high load-bearing applications: bridges, parking garages, foundation and basement walls, balconies, or CRCP for heavy state highways – in these instances, please use OwensCorning® Fiberglas™ Rebar.

Handling & Placement

Following guidelines in ACI440.5-08 “Specification for Construction with FRP Bars.” In general, field handling and placement is the same as for epoxy or galvanized steel bars. Do NOT shear FRP bars. When field cutting of FRP bars is necessary, use a fine blade saw, grinder, carborundum or diamond blade. Sealing the ends of FRP bars is not necessary. Support chairs are required at two-thirds the spacing of steel rebar. Plastic coated tie wire is the preferred option for most projects.

Packaging

Owens Corning Fiberglass Rebar for Flatwork is bundled together into standard bundle sizes containing 20ft lengths. Protective paper wrapping is also available upon request.

Labeling

Material certifications are available for any production lot of Owens Corning Fiberglass Rebar, traceable by bar marks imprinted on the bar in intervals showing the bar diameter, stock order and production date. Owens Corning Fiberglass for Flatwork is distinguished by a blue helical wrap.

Storage

Fiberglass Rebar for Flatwork should remain covered and protected from UV exposure until ready for use and placement.
