WHY CHOOSE GBARZ ?
Hot-dip galvanised steel resists corrosion and enhances service life in numerous environments extremely well. It is not uncommon for galvanised steels to last more than 70 years under certain conditions.
The unique chemistry of zinc with iron actually create rust-resistance at the point of any surface damage and protect the surface sacrificially.
STRONGER THAN STEEL
The galvanizing process creates alloy layers on the steel surface that are actually harder than base steel. The hardness of 2 out of 3 Zinc Iron alloy layers is twice as much as steel it is protecting.
MINIMIZES RETOUCHING ON THE JOB SITE
Saves time and troubles involved with patching gaps / Holidays, job site damage, and imperfections that occur in the other types of rust-proofing paints & epoxy.
SUPERIOR BOND STRENGTH
In studies conducted by various labs & universities across the world, batch galvanized reinforcing bar showed superior bond strength compared to both black and epoxy-coated re-bars. Our Special Chromated GBARZ illustrate better bond strength by formation of a Calcium hydroxyzincate compound layer while in cast condition, strengthening the concrete bond and ensuring better bond strength.
When compared with paint systems & epoxy, hot-dip galvanizing has comparable initial application costs and, almost always, lower life-cycle costs. In fact, the lower life-cycle costs of a hot-dip galvanized project make galvanizing the smart choice for today and tomorrow. It is summed up as paying 3% premium as one time cost for gaining 300% more steel life.
Galvanization increases reinforcement bar life by more than 60 years
