Why HDG Rebar?
Traditionally, hot-dip galvanized reinforcing steel is specified for its superior corrosion protection, especially in harsh environments such as embedded in concrete. There are a number of other benefits galvanized rebar provides and it has a long history of proven performance. The first zinc-coated steel used in concrete can be traced as far back as 1908, and regular use began in the 1930s.
Though corrosion resistance is inherent any time galvanizing is utilized, more and more specifiers select hot-dip galvanized rebar for other reasons such as: durability, chloride threshold, unparalleled bond strength, safety, and lower project costs.
