  • Shorthand for reinforcing bar
  • Beams added to concrete to add tensile strength
  • Typically steel, although new material options are being explored

New Material Options

  • Epoxy Spray Coated Coated Steel was tried, but supposedly lead to small scratches/defects leading to concentrated corrosion, and then breaks in that point
  • Not to be confused with a proper liquid epoxy coat, which may be more stable, also combination with other methods
  • Galvanization
  • Stainless Steel (not likely due to cost)
