Neuvokas Corp., a leading composite rebar manufacturer, introduces GatorBar Glass, its initial GFRP rebar product. GatorBar Glass offers the lowest cost composite rebar with improved handling by virtually eliminating slivers. It is 100% made in the USA. Additionally, it meets all ASTM 7957 specifications, and provides a guaranteed tensile strength 4X greater than grade 40 steel rebar.
GatorBar Basalt and Glass are both the preferred composite rebar products. They dramatically reduce material, labor, transport and handling costs, while providing better crack control compared to steel rebar.
GatorBar provides a low cost “zero-rust” rebar solution in normal, high chloride concrete and corrosive environment applications. This is not possible with steel. The company produces the product with an advanced, sliver reducing, polyester-free resin system. Polyester resin, often used in other low-cost FRP rebar products, is specifically off-limits for use in composite rebar by the American Society for Testing and Materials International (ASTM) and the American Concrete Institute (ACI).
“Four years ago, Neuvokas introduced GatorBar Basalt – a product that turned the composite rebar industry on its head. We are proud to introduce our next generation product, GatorBar Glass. Its price point and improved handling address our customers concerns while expanding and improving our offering,” said Erik Kiilunen, CEO at Neuvokas Corp.
GatorBar Glass debuted at the 2020 World of Concrete.
