PINKBAR™ Fiberglas™ Rebar for Flatwork is intended for slab on ground
applications such as: parking slabs, drive-ways, sidewalks, agricultural flats,
and Continuous Reinforcement Concrete Paving (CRCP) for streets.
PINKBAR™ Fiberglas™ Rebar is not intended for use as
reinforcement for high load-bearing applications: bridges, parking garages,
foundation and basement walls, balconies, or CRCP for heavy state highways
– in these instances, please use OwensCorning® Fiberglas™ Rebar.
Handling & Placement
Following guidelines in ACI440.5-08 “Specification for Construction with FRP Bars.” In general, field handling and placement is the same as for epoxy or galvanized steel bars. Do NOT shear FRP bars. When field cutting of FRP bars is necessary, use a fine blade saw, grinder, carborundum or diamond blade. Sealing the ends of FRP bars is not necessary. Support chairs are required at two-thirds the spacing of steel rebar. Plastic coated tie wire is the preferred option for most projects.
Owens Corning Fiberglass Rebar for Flatwork is bundled together into standard bundle sizes containing 20ft lengths. Protective paper wrapping is also available upon request.
Material certifications are available for any production lot of Owens Corning Fiberglass Rebar, traceable by bar marks imprinted on the bar in intervals showing the bar diameter, stock order and production date.
Owens Corning Fiberglass for Flatwork is distinguished by a blue helical wrap.
Fiberglass Rebar for Flatwork should remain covered and protected from UV exposure until ready for use and placement.
