Why Choose V-ROD GFRP Reinforcement

Reinforced concrete is the standard building material for construction of buildings and infrastructure. However, steel used historically for reinforcement may cause major corrosion issues due to our climate and exposure to chlorides and have resulted in severe deterioration. Governments and owners are facing an estimated $74B of ongoing repairs and potential dangerous failures have now included GFRP in their corrosion protection policies. V-ROD® GFRP composite reinforcement has answered the call in providing an economical, safe and long-term sustainable solution with initial and “Life Cycle” cost savings.

Why Choose V-ROD GFRP Rebar

All GFRP is not created equal. In offering the widest range and highest grade of GFRP (glass fiber reinforced polymer), high strength CFRP (Carbon fiber reinforced polymer) or load transfer dowels, V-ROD® sets the benchmark as the global leader in providing the best performance at the best cost. The mechanical and physical properties of FRP reinforcement are critical in determining performance and long-term durability.  Accordingly, V-ROD® is the only bar available in the market that meets all three grades (40GPa, 50GPa & 60GPa) as per the CSA S-807; offering the highest grade in the market up to GUTS of 1372 MPa and 65GPa down to its LM line of 800MPa and 44GPa bar. This allows optimization of design and best cost vs performance ratio - FLEXIBILITY.
