Galvanized rebar

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.

New ASTM standard covers galvanized rebar

Source: ASTM International, West Conshohocken, Pa.

ASTM A1094/A1094M, Specification for Continuous Hot-Dip Galvanized Steel Bars for Concrete Reinforcement, details corrosion protection for zinc- or zinc alloy-coated rebar. “Galvanizing is a proven and effective way to protect reinforcing bar from corrosion, as it provides both barrier and galvanic protection to the steel substrate, [and] increases the chloride threshold,” says GalvInfo Center Director Gary Dallin.
