Discuss your involvement with ACMA’s FRP-Rebar Manufacturers Council.
The major FRP rebar producers in the U.S. and Canada make up ACMA’s FRP-Rebar Manufacturers Council. I believe that the real benefits that can be generated through this council are a collective effort to broaden the knowledge about composite rebar in general and promote its uses.
The end users – everyone from state government to contractors – need to be educated and introduced to these composite rebar products. Composite rebar is a relatively new product with slightly different characteristics than steel rebar. The product works remarkably well and if the rebar council continues to promote the use of the composite rebar, the results will be dramatic.
