Stainless steel rebar

High performance reinforcement is used to control the damaging effects of corrosive environments due to chlorides from deicing compounds, marine spray or contamination and spillage from chemical processing in mining, petrochemical or other industrial environments. Company cites a growing trend among state, provincial and federal transportation engineers to specify stainless as it represents the most economically viable corrosion resistant reinforcing steel for chloride attack-prone concrete.
