Advantages of fiber glass dowels, fiber glass rebars and fiber glass dowel baskets.

4 times lighter than steel

Fiberglass dowels and fiberglass rebars are up to four times lighter than steel. That means less labour and satisfied personnel.

Environment friendly

The production of fiber glass dowels and fiber glass rebars produces less CO2 in comparison to the iron version. This has a positive effect on the environment.

No corrosion possible

Steel reacts with water, causing it to rust. On the other hand, fiber glass is not susceptible to corrosion, which results in a longer service life.

Looking for fiberglass dowels? Fiber dowels

Higher breakingpoint

We have tested the fiber glass dowel's breakingpoint and the results came out higher than the traditional steel dowel.

High tensile strength

The tensile strength of the glass fibredowel is higher compared to iron:
glass fibre dowel: 600 - 1600 n/mm2 compared to
steel dowel: 200-550 n/mm2

Resistant to chemicals

Chloride and phosphates do not affect the fiber glass rebars or dowels. 

Looking for light connecting rods or anchor rods? Fiber Dowels

No loss of strength

The fiberglass dowel or fiberglass rebars does not lose strength at low temperatures. The iron dowel or coupling rod at high temperatures do differ.

Radio Transparent

The material does not conduct radio waves, making the fiberglass dowels easier to use in sensitive environments.

Higher flexural strength

The fiber glass dowels have a flexural strength than steel dowels.

Dowel racks

Diameter tolerance

A fiber glass dowel is always +/- 0.3 mm accurate in terms of curvature compared to steel which is close to +/- 0.5 mm.

Thermal conductivity

The thermal conductivity of the composite is 100 times lower than steel. 

Diagmagnetic

The material is diamagnetic and therefore has a repulsive force.
