Types of Rebars

Depending on the requirements and location of your project, you can choose five different types of rebar. Choosing the right type is very important to ensure the successful execution of your project.

1. European Rebar: This rebar is usually made of manganese; therefore, it tends to bend easily. It is not the right choice for areas that have extreme weather conditions such as tornadoes, hurricanes, or earthquakes. The good thing about it is that it is cost-effective.

2. Carbon Steel: It is the most common type of rebar. Though it is very versatile in terms of usage but corrodes very easily as compared to other types of rebar. Due to which it cannot be used in areas with high humidity or in the structures that are frequently exposed to water. Still then due to its strength-related properties, it is one of the best for all other types of construction.

3. Galvanized Rebar: Galvanized rebar is forty times more resistant to corrosion than the carbon steel rebar. This makes it ideal for structures and locations with high humidity and wet conditions.

4. Epoxy-Coated Rebar: This type of rebar is expensive and most useful in areas that will be in contact with saltwater. Other than that is also common for areas with high chances of corrosion. One important thing to keep in mind when choosing this type of rebar is the quality of the coating. Since the coating is the main quality of this rebar, make sure you buy it from a well-known steel supplier; otherwise, it might cost you heavily.

5. Stainless Steel Rebar: You can use it as an alternative to carbon steel rebar. It is around fifteen hundred times more resistant to corrosion, which makes it the most expensive option.
