Stainless Steel Rebars

Stainless steel has also been used to overcome the corrosion problem. Chromium is the a major alloy in stainless steel and imparts the corrosion resistance property to steel. The-corrosion resistance property of steel can be increased by increasing the chromium content. Stainless steel can withstand chloride attacks. The advantages of using stainless steel rebars are the following:

  1. Stainless steel is environment friendly.
  2. It has good resistance against corrosion (no need of surface protection).
  3. It has good engineering properties.
  4. The cover of concrete can be reduced if stainless steel bars are used.
  5. It is easy to handle.
  6. It helps reduces maintenance.
  7. Stainless steel is recyclable.
  8. Its design, detailing and construction techniques are similar to that of ordinary steel bars.
