Though this is reply is for Mr Bob Shilling, I have posted it on the list as well to clarify my earlier message. Dear Bob I should clarify that this is based on my experience in Australia, perhaps which is different from your experience in US. We probably do not have as much corrosion problems here as you have there. We donot have problems with deicing salts etc. as in US or Europe. Here in Australia really expoxy coated bar have no demand. To date there is only one manufacturer of epoxy coated bars in the entire country whose capacity is about a few hundred tons per annum which is an insignificant amount of the reinforcing steel tonnage. There were a two more who closed down. This topic was of interest to six months back and I've researched the scene in Aust. which shows that epoxy coating is not very reliable (in fact galvanising is a better way-my opinion only) . Bending and handling tends to break the epoxy, thus leading to sources of corrosion. In fact people in the field in Australia tend to agree that there is nothing that will be achieved by epoxy coating which cannot be achieved by good cover and dense coating. > Date: Tue, 25 Feb 1997 10:23:06 -0800 (PST) > From: Bob Shilling <shilling(--nospam--at)emf.net> > To: Raghu Pendyala <pendyala(--nospam--at)aqua.civag.unimelb.EDU.AU> > Cc: seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org > Subject: Re: Epoxy Coated Rebar > On Tue, 25 Feb 1997, Raghu Pendyala wrote: > > > > > In my opiinion epoxy coated bars are a complete waste of time and > > effort. > Raghu, > Is this opinion based on actual field experience, or on experimental data? > I see a lot of this being used lately, and am really curious as to why > some people are saying it's no good. > Thanks in advance, > Bob > > . . . . . . . . . . . . . ........................... > Bob Shilling, SE Berkeley, CA shilling(--nospam--at)emf.net > > > Raghu S.
