BASALT REBAR (BFRP REBAR)
BFRP (Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer)
KODIAK FRP Rebar is the US of manufacturer of FRP Rebar since 1984 & manufacturer of specification quality BASALT REBAR -Since 2013- 100% Made in the USA.
Basalt rebar is deformed rod used as high strength, non corrosive concrete reinforcement. Also sometimes referred to as Basalt rock rebar, Rock Rebar or BFRP rebar. Both, high strength glass and Basalt rock FRP rebar hold tremendous advantage over steel, galvanized steel & epoxy-coated steel rebar in key physical and characteristic properties.
KODIAK Basalt Rock Rebar has the advantage of being a little lighter than glass, a little higher tensile strength than common e-glass. Weight is less than 25% the weight of steel with more than 200% the tensile strength of steel. Basalt rock fiber will withstand higher temperatures before weakening. Basalt rock fiber’s high temperature tolerance can be utilized in combination with development of a resin matrix that can withstand comparable Tg (glass transition temperature) to Basalt fiber.
Basalt Rock Rebar is a non-corrosive concrete reinforcement similar to KODIAK E-CR Fiberglass Glass Rebar. BFRP rebar is made with Basalt rock fiber & used as a steel alternative in the same applications as KODIAK’s standard E-CR Fiberglass Rebar (GFRP).
When concrete faces exposure to environments containing: salt water/sea air, chlorine and other alkali chemicals. It does not corrode, weaken or discolor when structures are exposed to high alkali environments even with minimal concrete coverage. Kodiak BFRP Rebar is less than a quarter of the weight and greater than twice the tensile strength of steel. BFRP rebar like GFRP Rebar, is electrically non-conductive, and non-magnetic, insulates against thermal transfer, and is transparent to (RF) radio frequency.
Why Use Basalt Rebar?

galvanized Rebar or epoxy coated rebar
Warranty Your products with Confidence
Basalt FRP Rebar & E-CR Glass FRP Rebar is the choice concrete reinforcement for any application, especially those where concrete is exposed to water, salt water, or chemical environments. FRP rebar does not corrode, weaken or dis-color. BFRP Rebar is 4x lighter than steel rebar 2-3x the tensile strength of steel rebar. BFRP rebar is Non-magnetic, Non-Conductive to electrical current & thermal transfer, & transparent to (RF) radio frequency. These characteristic qualities have made FRP Rebar standard protocol for use in MRI facilities, power transmission terminals, precision calibration, toll-roads as well as any area in which magnetic equipment & radio frequency is present. FRP rebar is the concrete reinforcement of reputable pre-cast concrete manufacturers for quality production.
