To fit within its expanding high-strength steel product line, the company has changed the branding of its namesake product to ChrōmX 9100 (Grade 100) and 9120 (Grade 120) rebar, both sold under the ASTM A1035 specification. ChrōmX 9000 bar provides high strength with ductility, as well as high corrosion resistance—five times more than standard carbon steel—outperforming epoxy-coated and galvanized rebar for corrosion protection, product engineers contend.
