Steel Rebars, Benefits, and Types in Nepal

Steel Rebars are widely utilized in the construction field. When rebar is inserted into concrete, the tensile strength of the concrete is increased. The rebar's rope-like surface is intended to improve the bond between it and the concrete. Bendable and formable Metal crafts use rebars, which are also available in mesh.

Plus Points of Steel Rebars

Reinforced steel has mastered the art of gaining the faith of designers, modelers, and construction site companies worldwide. The reasons behind this are as follows:

  • Rebars are made and created under strict guidelines and are readily available for use in any construction.

  • Steel rebars are exceptionally ductile, meaning they will remain ductile even when subjected to higher loads.

  • Steel and concrete have nearly identical thermal expansion coefficients, and as a result, both will experience similar length changes as temperatures rise.

  • Rebars can be quickly produced and delivered in large quantities. This saves time and improves the overall development process' proficiency.

  • Steel Rebars have high resistance to abrasion during shipping, storage, bundling, and placement on construction sites. Steel's performance is unaffected by minor damage.

  • Reinforcing steel structures can be altered later on for new applications, stacking conditions, vertical developments, and changes in proprietor want in manners that other surrounding frameworks can never achieve. 

Types of Steel Rebars

Steel Reinforcement Bars are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials.

The following are some of the most common varieties of steel bars seen in construction:

Mild Steel Rebar

Mild steel bars are circular and easy to cut and bend without causing harm. They're found in dowels at expansion joints, contraction joints in roads and runways, as well as column spirals, bridges, and other large constructions. These bars are not recommended because of poor concrete-steel bonding, slippage, and strength.

Deformed Steel Rebar

The presence of ribs and lugs in deformed steel bars helps alleviate a major problem that mild steel bars face. TMT (Thermo Mechanically Treated) and High Strength Deformed Bars are two types of deformed steel bars.

Other Types of Rebars

European Rebar (manganese-based), Carbon Steel Rebar (Black Bar), Epoxy-Coated Rebar, Galvanized Rebar, Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP), and Stainless Steel Rebar are all included under this category.

Steel Industry in Nepal

Imports of steel rebar are on the rise, but the good news is that the steel industry in Nepal is improving on the production side. Following the devastating earthquake in 2015, Nepali iron and steel companies have concentrated their efforts on manufacturing stronger and safer manufacturing goods. Steel rebars are commonly available in 8 mm and 25 mm diameters, with prices ranging from NPR 99 to 105 on average. However, there is a wide range of differences in prices in different geographical areas and from one brand to the next.
