Reinforcing Y-Bar – 20mm
Rebar (short for reinforcing bar), collectively known as reinforcing steel and reinforcement steel, is a steel bar used as a tension device in reinforced concrete and reinforced masonry structures to strengthen and hold the concrete in compression. Concrete is strong under compression, but has weak tensile strength. Rebar significantly increases the tensile strength of the structure. Rebar’s surface is often patterned to form a better bond with the concrete. The most common type of rebar is carbon steel, typically consisting of hot-rolled round bars with deformation patterns.
Size : 6500mm(l) x 20mm
CUT & BEND
We cut, bend and deliver Rebar to Specification or Bending Schedule as required by the engineer, architect or customers satisfaction. Material conforming to International and Local SABS Standards are made to order, strapped, bundled and tagged for delivery to your requirements.
What is mild steel?
Mild steel is a type of carbon steel with a low amount of carbon – it is actually also known as “low carbon steel.” Mild steel is not an alloy steel and therefore does not contain large amounts of other elements besides iron; you will not find vast amounts of chromium, molybdenum, or other alloying elements in mild steel. Less carbon means that mild steel is typically more ductile, machinable, and weldable than high carbon and other steels, however, it also means it is nearly impossible to harden and strengthen through heating and quenching. The lack of alloying elements such as those found in stainless steels means that the iron in mild steel is subject to oxidation (rust) if not properly coated. It is the affordability, weldability and machinability that make it such a popular choice of steel for consumers.
