A rebar supply company is essential to any contractor working on a wide variety of projects. Triumph Construction Supply is the premiere rebar supply company in the Kansas City area. Rebar is short for reinforcing bar. It is a steel bar used as a tension device in reinforced concrete and reinforced masonry structures. Since concrete is strong under compression but has weak tensile strength, rebar can significantly increase the tensile strength of the structure. The continuous series of ribs, lug, or indentations on rebar are part of the design intended to promote a better bond with the concrete and reduce the risk of slippage.
The most common type of rebar is carbon steel, which typically consists of hot-rolled round bars with deformation patterns embossed into its surface. The thermal expansion rates of steel and concrete are similar, so there will be minimal difference in the amount of stress experienced by these materials used in combination due to temperature change. One major weakness of carbon steel rebar is its susceptibility to corrosion.
Due to this drawback, another commonly used type of rebar is stainless steel which is more corrosion resistant. Alternatively, carbon steel rebar can be coated in an epoxy resin which will help it resist the effects of corrosion, especially when used in saltwater environments. Alternatives to carbon steel tend to be more expensive and have lesser mechanical properties making their use more specialized.
