GFRP Rebar for Road Construction

GFRP Rebar for Road Construction

Road Construction

Road construction is essential construction for the public. It provides access to social, health, education services, and employment, a vital driver of the country’s economic development, trade, and social integration.

Road infrastructure includes roads, bridges, flyovers, culverts, elevated roads, tunnels, railway over bridges, under bridges, foot over bridges, grade-separated interchanges, footpaths, cycle tracks, etc.

Deterioration of structures is a common occurrence and can be caused by a variety of factors, such as corrosion due to the marine environment, high chloride content in the air, chemical reactions, heavy loads, adverse climatic conditions, poor construction & maintenance, and natural disasters such as earthquakes and cyclones, etc. 

Many materials are available for road construction like CFRP, RCC, FRP, Steel reinforcement bars, GFRP Rebars, etc. GFRP Rebars have much more potential than the other rebars. GFRP Reinforcement bars have been developed into sustainable and cost-effective road and highway construction solutions. GFRP Rebar is the only material that can help road construction companies to achieve or exceed the service life of 100 years.

Generally, Reinforced Cement Concrete (RCC) is used with steel reinforcement bars for road construction. The price of cement and steel regularly increases, so construction costs will also increase. The lifespan of RCC with steel reinforcement bars construction is smaller as compared to GFRP Rebar road construction.

Many researchers and individuals are continuously researching and developing construction materials, building materials and techniques to improve the quality of road construction material.

Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer Rebar

GFRP (Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer) rebar is a high tensile strength material. It is an alternative to steel reinforcement bars. GFRP Rebar is the strongest, lightest, and most cost-effective material for construction and building. Many materials are available for construction, like CFRP, FRP, Steel reinforcement bars, RCC, and GFRP Reinforcement bars. 

Advantages of GFRP Rebar 

  • Cost-effective:- GFRP Rebar is cost-effective material. You can buy this material at a low cost with the best quality for construction. 
  • Stronger:- Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer is two times stronger than steel bars.
  • Lighter:- GFRP Rebar is ¼ lighter than the steel reinforcement bars. 
  • Water-Compatible:- GFRP Rebar is corrosion resistant material. GFRP Rebar is water compatible. You can use this rebar for docks, dams, waterside walls, and dam construction. 
  • High-temperature:- It melts at a very high temperature. It can handle high-temperature stress. For tunnels, nuclear stations, power stations, and highways, the GFRP Rebar is the best option. 
  • Easy transportation:- You can bend this rebar and quickly load it on the vehicle, so it is easy for transportation.

Steel reinforcement bars may cause major corrosion issues due to climate and exposure to chlorides and have resulted in severe deterioration.

Steel rebars still have a presence in the market, but it has many disadvantages. Governments and private property owners have to pay billions of dollars for construction and maintenance costs. GFRP Rebar can fulfill all the requirements for the best construction material.
