We cut and bend rebar cages on site.
Rebar prices fluctuate based on the price of the raw materials used in the manufacturing process. The mill sets a price monthly using the current price of Shredded Auto Scrap Steel and adds surcharges based on other factors of production and shipping.
Generally, reinforcing steel bars are either carbon-steel (conforming to ASTM A615) or low-alloy steel (conforming to ASTM A706).
Reinforcing bars typically come in two primary grades: Grade 40, which has minimum yield strength of 40,000 psi, and Grade 60, which has a yield strength of 60,000 psi.
Steel Reinforcing bars are produced by pouring molten steel into casters and then running it through a series of stands in the mill, which shape the steel into reinforcing bars. The cross hatchings, called
deformations, help transfer the load between concrete and steel
While concrete alone is strong, reinforcing steel significantly increases the strength of concrete in an economical and safe manner. Reinforced concrete is also considered environmentally friendly as the steel is made from 100% recycled scrap.
