ADVANTAGES OF V-ROD® GFRP REINFORCING
Non-corrosive even in the harshest environments and not affected by emissions or carbonation. Impervious to salts, chlorides, chemical products or alkaline present in concrete.
Pultrusion process of V-ROD® provides tensile strengths 2-3 times that of steel which is utilized by excellent bond strength of sand coating with Kb value of 0.8.
As V-ROD® contains no ions, it does not conduct electromagnetic energy and eliminates stray current/conductivity issues in substations, transit, reactor bases, MRI’s etc.
With significantly lower thermal conductivity than steel, V-ROD® is an
ideal insulator, providing a thermal break for precast insulated wall panels or balcony connections.
