What is Rebar, and What is it Primarily Used For?

Rebar  is manufactured steel that is used to help support concrete under heavy stress or tensile duress. If concrete is to bear extreme tension from heavy loads, then rebar is used to help distribute and increase strength. You can order Rebar in various thickness such as 10 mm, 12 mm, 16 mm, 20 mm, 25 mm, 32 mm and 40 mm.
