Mateenbar™ is a high performance glass-ﬁbre reinforced polymer (GFRP) rebar. It is the proven solution to corrosion, replacing steel rebar for concrete reinforcement.
Grand Paris Express and Line 15 South, Paris, France
Tunnel boring machines (TBM) move quicker through GFRP rebar than steel rebar. With GFRP rebar, there is no risk of damage to the TBM which often leads to costly construction delays.Read more
Post-earthquake State Highway 1 seawall, Kaikoura, New Zealand.
To accelerate the speed of repair, pre-cast concrete blocks were used. To address the durability problems in a coastal environment, the blocks were reinforced with Mateenbar™Read more
Concrete Replacement Slab at Potash Plant, Safi, Jordan
Prolonged exposure to the processes used to make potash cause the early onset of concrete cancer. Using GFRP rebar instead of steel in this extreme environment has extended the lifespan of the structure.See all projects

Fiberglass Rebar: the Future of Sustainable Infrastructure12 September 2023
As the demand for sustainable infrastructure increases, a renewed look at whole-of-life cycle savings and the ongoing cost of corrosion is challenging engineers to look beyond conventional construction materials.
Enhancing Precast Structures with GFRP Concrete Reinforcement24 August 2023
The use of glass fiber concrete reinforcement in precast structures like marina pontoons, tetrapods, and seawall panels has gained popularity due to their cost savings, endurance, and resistance to corrosion.
