Rebar, also known as reinforcement steel bar, reinforcing steel bar and deformed bar, is a steel bar or mesh of steel wires used in reinforced concrete and masonry structures to strengthen and hold the concrete in tension. The surface of rebar is usually patterned or deformed to enhance the quality of the bond with the concrete. While concrete is strong in compression, a rebar is used to compensate its relatively weak tension. Casting rebar into concrete allows the concrete to increase overall strength and carry heavy tensile loads.


Uses of rebar include construction, engineering, bridges, tunnels, buildings, concrete structures, industrial, marine, precast products, anchoring systems, highway infrastructures, decks and barrier walls.


One of the common grades of rebar is BS4449, which is the highest grade of iron ore. BS4449 is a popular structural steel grade suitable for various high strength applications, such as building infrastructures, refineries and bridges. Structural steel grade BS4449 is ideal for a variety of usages where high yield strength is needed without having to compromise on elongation properties. Rebars made from grade BS4449 has high bond strength and fatigue strength, which are essential in the construction industry. Due to their superior earthquake resistance, rebars made from grade BS4449 are often used in high rise buildings and bridges.
