Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/05/2017 -- Steel rebar, commonly known as steel reinforcement or reinforced bar, is a steel bar or a mesh of steel wires used in concrete constructions and concrete masonry as a tension device in order to provide support to concrete structures. Concrete exhibits high strength when compressed, but is equally weak under tension. Steel rebar acts as the tensioning device, thus providing strength to concrete structures. It makes these structures stable under strength and tension. Steel is used in concrete reinforcement as it offers high tensile strength and has a thermal co-efficient value, which is close to the thermal co-efficient value of concrete. Furthermore, it is one of the cheaper options that can be used for concrete reinforcement and concrete masonry. Aluminum is a costlier substitute for steel with less tensile strength. However, steel rebar has several disadvantages. These include the corrosion tendency of ferrous materials. This leads to intrinsic deterioration of structures where steel is used. Production of steel adversely affects the environment. For instance, it leads to emission of hazardous gases such as carbon oxides, sulfur oxide, and nitrogen oxide in air. It also is responsible for emission of CO2, thus leading to the greenhouse effect. Production of steel results in discharge of wastes into water, thereby leading to water contamination. The steel rebar market has been expanding due to the rapid infrastructure development, especially in housing, commercial, and industrial infrastructure, in developing nations. The market for steel rebar is expected to expand significantly in the next few years owing to the rapid industrialization in developing nations. There exists a need for substitutes for steel rebar considering its various disadvantages.

Some substitutes such as basalt rebar and fiber reinforced polymer are eco- friendly and possess high tensile strength. These substitutes are anticipated to seize some share of the steel rebar market due to the environmental and corrosive effects of steel. Basalt rebar possesses numerous advantages over steel rebar and also has thermal co-efficient almost equal to that of concrete. The industry is experiencing continuous innovations and advancements due to the rapid technological advancements and high end applications of steel rebar. The newer grades that are being introduced are Fe-500, Fe-550, and Fe-500D. Similarly, in terms of application, a newer range of steel rebar that is corrosion resistant, epoxy coated, and earthquake resistant is being used increasingly in applications than the conventional rebar.

Based on application at the site of work, the steel rebar market can be segmented into mild steel bars and deformed steel bars. Mild steel bars are used to support the tensile stress of slab beams. Deformed steel bars come with deformity or lugs or ribs on the bar surface. It has higher tensile strength as compared to the mild steel rebar and avoids slippage, limits cracks in concrete, and also binds two materials strongly.

Based on its finish, the steel rebar market can be divided into black rebar, epoxy coated rebar, and fabricated rebar. The use of these finishes depends on the environmental conditions that the bars are subjected to.  Black rebar is a conventional uncoated rebar used at sites with minimum exposure to moisture, with minimum chances of catching rust or corrosion. Epoxy rebar is usually found in marine applications where there is a high chance of corrosion due to water. Black rebar is the preferred rebar is widely used owing to its cost effectiveness.
