COMPANY DESCRIPTION: The use of FRP composite reinforcement is becoming a standard material for the reinforcing of concrete structures across Canada, particularly for infrastructure.

With Pultrall setting the benchmark with their Canadian Made product in terms of performance , Quality Control and continuous   R&D, V-ROD has been used in dozens of projects for numerous MOT's, cities and municipalities across Canada. Being ISO 9001-2000 and ISO/TS 16949, Pultrall is a “certified” manufacture according to CSA S-807 and Prior ISIS FRP Certification . V-ROD is available in 40, 50, and 60 Gpa . The  three grades outlined in the S-807 , all meeting the “D1 Durability grade. Headed rebar is used for 60 Gpa bars with bends, stirrups or Spirals in 40 and 50 Gpa grades. Public agencies as the MTO have “now included GRFP as a premium corrosion resistant material in its corrosion protection policy”. Applications are now becoming standard, much larger and more complex.

Pre-cast is certainly growing rapidly into one of the largest applications for V-ROD ® FRP, and aside from large pre-cast bridges, the bar is being used for many smaller applications that can benefit from the non-corrosive, non-conductive properties of the bar. Weight is also drastically reduced, being ¼ the weight of steel. Depending on the application, concrete cover can also be reduced as corrosion is now taken out of the equation. Unique applications such as pre-cast exterior building panels have also been cast using V-ROD ®. We would like to ensure you have considered FRP in your pre-cast operations. I have attached some Project Reports of some of the larger pre-cast applications for your information.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for further data or costing. Please also refer to our website; www.vrodcanada.com for more (new website still under construction!). We look forward to being of service to you and your organization.
