Traditionally, the preferred system for concrete reinforcement has been steel. However, steel has limitations, making it unsuitable for certain environments and applications. In such conditions design engineers have struggled to find a satisfactory material and often had to accept inadequate solutions.
Pultron Composites has over 30 years of composite expertise, and worked closely with world leading suppliers to develop MateenBar GFRP reinforcing bar. These high performance characteristics make MateenBar the preferred choice of composite reinforcement; commonly termed Fibreglass or GFRP rebar.
mateen adj. strong and durable
Composites impact the environment less than their competitors because they require less energy use due to the lower need for replacement. FRP Bridge decks, for example, have three times greater service life, on average, than that of concrete
