So, what exactly is FRP rebar?

Right now we are producing and selling only 3/8” (#3) rebar that can replace ½” (#4) steel rebar in many slab on grade applications. We will be producing other sizes in the near future. Get on our mailing list to stay updated.
Is GatorBar field bendable?
No, but you may contact Neuvokas if bends are needed in your design. Bends need to made at the manufacturing facility and Neuvokas engineers will gladly assist.
What is the best way to cut GatorBar?
GatorBar can be cut with a high speed grinding cutter, fine blade saw, diamond blade, or masonry blade. Proper safety equipment should be worn when cutting.
How should GatorBar be stored?
GatorBar should be stored above the surface of the ground on skids or pallets. If it must be stored outside, we advise that you place a tarp over it, as UV rays may damage the performance of the bars over time.
How should I set up Gatorbar for my slab on grade pour?
You will chair it up as you would with steel rebar. It can be tied off with wire ties, zip ties, or KodiKlips.
What will it cost me?
Prices will vary depending on order size and location but expect to pay approximately what you would pay for equivalent steel product. Call us today at 906-934-2661 for a quote, or click here.
