Fabricated in the field, lengths of 20-60 ft
Large jobs fabricated and shipped

Rebar sizes

Various types based specs & strength
Type I = normal cement
 Type II = moderate-sulfate resistance cement
 Type III = high-early-strength cement
 Type IV = low-heat-of-hydration
 Type V = high-sulfate –resistance cement
