Technical specifications

Apart from being environmentally friendly, lighter, and more resistant, fiberglass has other positive effects compared to steel. It boasts a tensile strength of up to 1000 MPa, comprises 70% fibers, and does not conduct radio waves. Additionally, it enjoys a higher tensile strength ranging from 600 to 1600 N/mm² and has a thermal conductivity of only 0.25%.

Benefits

Fiber reinforced products have numerous advantages ranging from technical specifications to durability. We aim to make it as easy as possible for you, so here are some of the key benefits:

Environmentally friendly

Compared to traditional steel counterparts, the production of fiberglass dowels and rebars releases significantly less CO2, making a positive impact on the environment.

Lightweight

The same fiberglass dowels and tie bars are up to 4 times lighter than conventional steel, reducing labor intensity and keeping the workforce satisfied.

Corrosion resistance

Steel always reacts to water, leading to rust and eventual loss of strength. fiberglass, being non-reactive, makes corrosion simply impossible.

Chemical resistance

In addition to corrosion resistance, it is also chemically resistant. Substances like chloride and phosphates have no effect on fiberglass dowels and tie bars; they remain unaffected.

Why you should work with the products of Fiber Dowels

There are many benefits that our fiberglass products offer over steel. They are environmentally friendly, lighter, more cost-effective, and facilitate quicker installation, resulting in faster project completion. There are no downsides to consider. Furthermore, Fiber Dowels has all the tools to help you make your project lighter, better, and faster!
