Conventional GFRP rebar! LIGHTplus is designed for low loads!
TM LIGHTplus GFRP rebar is a conventional type of GFRP rebar based on glass fiber with 83% adhesion to concrete. It is widely applied at low loads and is the very first type of reinforced polymer rebar in the world!
TM LIGHTplus GFRP rebar is a non-metallic reinforced polymer bar based on glass fibers, which are impregnated with thermos hardening and thermoplastic polymer binder and are cured. While its manufacture our GFRP rebar is designed with a special rib. These type of GFRP rebar has 83% adhesion to concrete.
Proven convention and trusted heritage is LIGHTplus GFRP rebar!
Due to the fact that GFRP rebar is 2-2.5 times stronger at break, GFRP rebar with a smaller diameter can substitute steel bars:

|6 mm||8 mm||Elongation||25%||2,2%|
|7 mm||10 mm||Modulus of elasticity||210 000 MPa||55 000 MPa|
|8 мм||12 мм||Thermal conductivity ratio||46 W/(m0 °C )||0,35 W/(m0°C)|
|10 mm||14 mm||Linear expansion ration||13-15 ах-5/°C||9-12 ах-5/°C|
|12 mm||16 mm||Density||7850 kg/m3||1900 kg/m3|
|14 mm||18 mm||Electrical conductivity||highly conductive||non-conductive|
|16 mm||20 mm||Resistance to aggressive environment||corrosible and low resistant||corrosion and acid resistant|
|GFRP rebar diameter||Total quantity in a coil/roll||Coil/roll diameter||Coil/roll weight|
|4 mm||100-200 m||0,80 m||up to 5 kg|
|6 mm||50-200 m||0,80 – 1,00 m||up to 10 kg|
|7 mm||50-200 m||1,00 – 1,20 m||up to 12 kg|

|10 mm||50-100 m||1,25 – 1,75 m||up to 20 kg|
|12 mm||50-100 m||1,75 m||up to 25 kg|
|14 mm||6-12 m||in bars|
|16 mm||6-12 m||in bars|
In order to deliver 2 km of steel bars you will need special-purpose equipment, and in order to conduct loading and unloading you will need pretty much time and workers. More over, the cost of all these operations will be quite price.
In order to deliver 2 km of LIGHTplus GFRP rebar you will just need a car. Due to the fact that GFRP rebar can be delivered in coils/rolls and its weight is about 10 times lower than of steel bars, loading and unloading operations will take just about 15 minutes and 1 worker.

Since conventional composite rebar is slidable and has 83% adhesion to concrete, its application is limited and suitable for constructions with low loads only. Composite rebar with sand coating HARDplus has no such disadvantages, which makes it twice more reliable!
