Rebar is the common name for cylindrical shaped steel bars with uniformly spaced protrusions called lugs or deformations. They are hot rolled from semi-finished steel called billets.
Rebar is the predominantly consumed steel product of the construction industry and is specifically used for concrete reinforcement. Rebar creates tension in concrete to help hold it in a compressed state.
Reinforced concrete gives infrastructure, buildings, bridges, houses, and other construction the necessary structural integrity as required by Philippine law and building codes.
SteelAsia carries the full line of rebar specifications used in the Philippines.
* “Weldability” refers ONLY to a TS/YS Ratio of greater than 1.25, or a bar intended for seismic conditions.
Rebar standards are detailed in the Philippine National Standard for Steel Bars for Concrete Reinforcement PNS49 and for re-rolled bars PNS 211.
SteelAsia supplies more than 80% of the steel bar requirements for land, air, sea, power, and communications infrastructure. The preferred supplier of the largest contractors and property developers in the Philippines.
