There can be a number of areas in which cost savings can be achieved when using TXON GRP™ rebars. Firstly, since TXON GRP™ rebars have a very high strength-to-weight ratio, the overall dead load of the structure will decrease. (The weight of TXON GRP™ rebar will vary from 1/4th to 1/6th of the weight of equivalent steel rebar),lowering the cost of the structure.
Secondly, because of its light weight, fewer people are required for fabricating the rebar cage and other related construction work (such as delivery and cargo weight limitations). A potential for further reduction in labor expense due to low weight is a very attractive feature.
Thirdly, unlike steel rebars, FRP rebars (TXON GRP™ rebars) are corrosion resistant and hence can be stored in virtually any location without any risk of damage due to the environment (e.g. snow and rain. Steel rebars are at risk of rusting and corroding and in most cases, they must be sandblasted or treated if stored for a long time – which invariably adds additional cost. Such problems are not encountered with TXON GRP™ rebars. With high corrosion resistance, TXON GRP™ allows the concrete cover (a.k.a. corrosion cap) to be kept at minimum (less than 6 mm) and hence the overall dimension of the structure can be reduced, resulting in potentially significant cost savings. And finally, since there is virtually no chance of damage due to corrosion, the maintenance cost for the structure is reduced and the service life of the structure increases.
