What is GFRP rebar?

  • GFRP stands for Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer
  • GFRP is a composite material of fibers reinforced with a polymer matrix.
  • The fibers are glass as in fiberglass.
  • The polymer matrix is polyester thermosetting plastic.

Benefits of GFRP rebar?

  • FRP rebar has a number of advantages such as corrosion resistance, light weight and a tensile strength stronger than steel.
  • FRP can be used in structural or architectural applications. It is a great alternative to steel where a wet or corrosive environment will eventually reach the rebar.
