GFRP Concrete Reinforcement

GFRP Concrete Reinforcement

Mechanical Cladding Fixation (Stangle)

IKK Mateenbar manufactures a structurally durable & high performance product called Mateenbar™ , a new standard of reinforcement, which is Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) rebar, also known as Fiberglass rebar.

It’s the first Aramco approved GFRP Rebar Facility. Our products remove the risk of concrete corrosion in highly aggressive environments. They provide large cost savings by eliminating maintenance costs and increasing the design life of concrete structures to 100+ years. Mateenbar™ glass fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP) rebar is designed for heavy load applications. It is used widely for bridges, highways as well as in highly corrosive environments including underwater structures, coastal environments and industrial sites.

Mateenbar™ is ACI, ASTM and CSA Grade III compliant. Standard approval processes and procurement processes are the same as for traditional construction materials, making it easy for engineers to change from traditional rebar to GFRP rebar.
