Rodinox® is a complete range of reinforcing products for concrete, in bars and coils, available in all the most important stainless steel types and it is the solution when the environment is aggressive. In these situations the usual carbon steel reinforcing bars may corrode, with destructive results on the structure. Actually, stainless steel reinforcing bars are resistant to corrosion, a real problem for carbon steel bars, that can be accelerated by chemical processes such as carbonation due to atmospheric attacks or infiltration of chlorides into the concrete.
The use of Rodinox® enhance durability on the concret structures, making possible to calculate the duration of the reinforcement for all the life of the artifact: moreover, designing with Rodinox® does not require special modification of the criteria comparing to the usual carbon rebar. Rodinox® can be processed in the same way as carbon steel bars, with the only caution of avoid contamination of stainless surface by using clean machines.
