Generally frp stands for fiber reinforced plastic.  In regard to bars (if 
concrete reinforcing bars are the intended definition of bars)  frp bars are 
available in a variety of types of materials: E-fiberglass, carbon, carbon/ 
e-glass, and aramid fiber.  Contact Salem Faza at Marshall Industries 
419-221-2598 for "C-bar"  or  Kodiak fiberglass reinforced plastic rebar at 
International Grating 713-633-8614.

Use frp concrete reinforcing bars with caution especially in seismic areas. 
 The mode of failure is brittle.
