WHY IS BFRP A
PROFITABLE AND SUSTAINABLE CHOICE
compared to steel?
Made from VOLCANIC ROCK, it has a thermal expansion coefficient similar to concrete.
This homogenious behaviour REDUCES CRACKING effects during extreme temperature changes.
Very ECO-FRIENDLY, BFRP has a manufacturing CO2 footprint process of 10:1 compared to steel.
Transportation and CO2 is cut as volume increases four times per trip due to the rebar's light weight.
OTHER DATA ON
BASALT COMPOSITE REBAR
Basalt rebar is engineered to last for over 100 years and will never rust or require long term maintenance. Unlike steel, Basalt Rebar is completely impervious to attacks from alkali, chemicals or water.
As Basalt Rebar allows for the construction of thinner and lighter panels and decks, it also reduces spacing between rods, concrete and surface.
Basalt rebar does not conduct electricity or induce current when exposed to RF energy, therefore, making it ideal for MRI or data facilities.
Basalt rebar is ideal for marine reinforcement applications, water treatment stations, and chemical plants where high levels of corrosion are a concern.
