MST-BAR vs Steel Rebar
100 years ago, steel rebar was developed as the only option for reinforcing concrete. However, many of the structures developed before steel rebar are still standing today. Structures using steel rebar in corrosive environments will begin to fail after 10 years.
Corrosion costs the private and public sectors $hundreds of billions of dollars in repair and maintenance costs a year. Corroding steel rebar is a ticking time bomb because determining the moment of failure can mean the difference between life and death.
MST-BAR can save the current costs of corrosion and eliminate all failures due to corrosion because it will outlive the concrete it is reinforcing.
1/4 THE WEIGHT OF STEEL
Get 4x the amount of product on your trucks and save incredibly on transportation costs. MST-BAR is also significantly easier to handle and use.
LIFESPAN OF +100 YEARS
MST-BAR will never corrode leading to spalls in the concrete. While steel has a lifespan of 50 years MST-BAR will outlast the concrete it is reinforcing;.
2.5 to 3x STRONGER THAN STEEL
With a tensile strength 2.5 to 3x the amount of steel and a fatigue resistance 20x the amount of steel, MST-BAR is the trusted solution for any project.
NON-CORROSIVE + NON-CONDUCTIVE
MST-BAR is non-corrosive and suited to any environmental exposure. MST-BAR does not conduct heat, cold, or electricity.
The manufacturing process of MST-BAR produces far less carbon emissions than the steel industry which has a devastating impact on the environment.
SUPERIOR BOND STRENGTH
Our rebar delivers a bond strength to concrete 3x the amount as steel. The only way to pull out the bar is the break the concrete itself.
