Get your MST Bar from us!

MST-BAR is a Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) Rebar. It is the only GFRP Rebar that is an Integrally Ribbed Maximum Strength Rebar. MST-BAR is the only GFRP Rebar that bonds to concrete better than steel. Steel Rebar oxidizes in concrete which creates rust cancers. The oxidation process causes the rebar to expand which results in the cover concrete to spall, leading to failure.

 

MST-BAR is 4x lighter than steel rebar, 3x stronger than steel rebar, does not conduct heat, cold or electricity, substantially reduces workplace injuries, takes half the time to install with half the amount of people, requires no maintenance or repairs and lasts longer than the concrete it is reinforcing. Governments are specifying it and the world is starting to realize, MST-BAR is the solution.

Why MST?

1/4 THE WEIGHT OF STEEL

Get 4x the amount of product on your trucks and save incredibly on transportation costs. MST-BAR is also significantly easier to handle and use.

LIFESPAN OF +100 YEARS

MST-BAR will never corrode leading to spalls in the concrete. While steel has a lifespan of 50 years MST-BAR will outlast the concrete it is reinforcing;.

2.5 to 3x STRONGER THAN STEEL

With a tensile strength 2.5 to 3x the amount of steel and a fatigue resistance 20x the amount of steel, MST-BAR is the trusted solution for any project.

NON-CORROSIVE + NON-CONDUCTIVE

MST-BAR is non-corrosive and suited to any environmental exposure. MST-BAR does not conduct heat, cold, or electricity. 

GREENER SOLUTIONS

The manufacturing process of MST-BAR produces far less carbon emissions than the steel industry which has a devastating impact on the environment.

SUPERIOR BOND STRENGTH

Our rebar delivers a bond strength to concrete 3x the amount as steel. The only way to pull out the bar is the break the concrete itself.
