BFRP Rebar vs Steel Rebar for Concrete Infrastructure

Rebar made from Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer has less than 74%the carbon footprint of steel


Which is the best choice for concrete reinforcement – BFRP rebars or steel rebars?
This video shows the properties of BFRP Rebar versus steel rebar and explains which is more effective for concrete reinforcement.
Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer Rebar or BFRP Rebar is significantly stronger than steel. Its durability is superior, and its tensile strength is 2.5 times that of steel.

BFRP Rebar contributes to reduction in concrete coverage by 25 – 30%, and its weights 4.5 times less than steel rebar This means you’ll need less manpower to lift and place the material during construction.

BFRP Rebar is 100% non-Corrosive, it is totally resistant to water and alkaline Radiation from ultraviolet light is not harmful to BFRP Rebar.
The average lifespan of steel rebar is 35 years, while that of BFRP rebar is over 100 years.

The amount of CO2 emissions from steel manufacturing is almost double the amount of steel created: 1.85 tons of carbon per 1 ton of steel.Rebar made from Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer has less than 74% the carbon footprint of steel.

Comparing BFRP Rebar production with steel, it reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 5.24 tons of coal equivalent per ton.

BFRP Rebar has the same coefficient of the thermal expansion as concrete! BFRP Rebar is a versatile, strong and cost-effective reinforcement with a better environmental profile and fewer embodied emissions, as fewer material and energy resources are required during production. used extensively in civil engineering and many other fields.


Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer Rebar BFRP is useful for the concrete because it adds strength, durability, and reduces shrinkage. BFRP Rebar is also a non-rusting alternative to steel rebar and don’t corrode over time. These benefits enhance the life of the concrete and increase the effectiveness of the overall construction in any project.

BFRP Rebar has found a place in the construction market, in terms of replacing steel reinforcement.

Further research and the development of guidelines for BFRP Rebar Supported this transition, and eventually opened new markets for more BFRP applications in different industries.

Arab Basalt Fiber Company offers a replacement of thousands of tons of steel rebar used for concrete reinforcement. We are looking forward to taking the next step toward sustainable, eco-friendly products.
