Architectural/decorative concrete elements
In coastal areas as well as near roadways where de-icing salts are used in urban environments, it is most definitely not uncommon to witness the degradation of architectural/decorative concrete elements. Whether it is rust stains at the concrete’s surface or, at worst, the spalling of concrete chunks as a result of the corrosion of steel reinforcement, these situations are highly undesirable and likely associated with large sums of money in rehabilitation and repairs.
With the product V•ROD of Pultrall...
The V•ROD composite material concrete reinforcing rod is totally impervious to corrosion and will consequently help avoid the situations described above and protect your investments in decorative concrete pieces.
Fully aware of the nature of the architectural/decorative concrete market, Pultrall has developed a product especially adapted to these applications. These bars are actually white in color, a perfect match to the natural color of concrete. They also exhibit almost twice the tensile strength of steel, allowing them to be installed under a minimal concrete cover while providing an unequalled cracking control. In brief, these products offer you the very best quality over price ratio.

about V•ROD rebar.
V•ROD rebar does not rust, even in the harshest environments. It does not react to salt, chemical products or the alkalinity present in concrete.
V•ROD rebar does not create a thermal bridge within structures.
She is almost 4 times lighter than steel rebar. It is much easier to handle and, in most cases, one truck load will be sufficient to carry the rebar required on an entire project.
V•ROD rebar offers a level of thermal expansion comparable to concrete due to its 80% silica content.
V•ROD rebar does not contain any metal; it will not cause any interference in contact with strong magnetic fields or when operating sensitive electronic instruments.
V•ROD rebar produced by pultrusion offers a tensile strength that can reach more than five times that of steel.
V•ROD rebar can be delivered at the right time and in the exact quantity needed at the site. Various specifications such as the length of straight bars as well as angles and led lengths of special bent sections are prepared in the plant.
