A lighter, stronger, and better priced alternative to steel rebar, GatorBar is a composite material comprised of a fiber (carbon, glass, aramid, basalt) that provides strength and stiffness, and a matrix (polyester, epoxy, vinyl ester) that protects and transfers load between the fibers. It is primarily used to reinforce concrete.
What sizes can I get?
Right now we are selling only 3/8” (#3) rebar that can replace ½” (#4) steel rebar in many slab on grade applications. Lengths available from us right now are 20, 7.5 and 5 foot.
Is GatorBar field bendable?
No, but bends can be special ordered from the manufacturing facility if needed.
What is the best way to cut GatorBar?
GatorBar can be cut with a high speed grinding cutter, fine blade saw, diamond blade, or masonry blade. Proper safety equipment should be worn when cutting.
How should GatorBar be stored?
GatorBar should be stored above the surface of the ground on skids or pallets. If stored outside, we advise that you place a tarp over it, as UV rays may damage the performance of the bars over time.
How should I set up Gatorbar for my slab on grade pour?
You will chair it up as you would with steel rebar. It can be tied off with wire ties, zip ties, or KodiKlips.
