High performance FRP composite reinforcement for concrete
BasBars™ is a high-performance composite rebar designed to reinforce concrete structures. Basalt fibres are embedded in a tough vinylester resin in ReforceTech’s patented process to create unique and strong reinforcement bar. Det Norske Veritas (DNV) has carried out an extensive qualification test program of BFRP in concrete. This has resulted in a Certificate of Fitness and Design Guidelines and Code compliance for marine construction.
