Major concrete reinforcing steel producer and distributor Commercial Metals Co. has closed on AZZ Inc. assets associated with Galvabar, a proprietary galvanized rebar with zinc alloy coating that provides advanced corrosion protection and post-fabrication formability.
Company presents GalvaBar as continuously galvanized rebar with proven protection and high formability. It can be fabricated after the galvanizing process without cracking, peeling or flaking. The process coats the steel with minimal exposure time to the molten zinc before cooling. That allows all grades of reinforcement, normal- to high-strength, to be galvanized with no risk of embrittlement.
