The steel bar (also known as rebar, reinforcement bar, or reinforcing steel) is an incredibly versatile construction material. It is one of the most commonly used materials for construction and manufacturing purposes.
It is generally used in the production of reinforced concrete for the construction industry to help strengthen or hold the concrete in place. Additionally, due to the numerous varieties of alloy steel composition types available, the steel bar also sees use in industries such as:
- Machine processing
- Military equipment
- Ship building
The type of steel bar needed thus varies according to its intended purpose. Because of its utility, steel bars suppliers have stocks in different shapes and sizes to accommodate for a large extent of uses.
Each steel bar can be manufactured to required specifications, for example in flat, hexagon, round, and square shapes according to individual needs.
