RE: EPOXY COATED REBARS

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Chris,

Thanks for answering to my post.  I did some research on the internet , and found ASTM A775, and ASTM A934.  There was no information about ASTM D3963 on the ASTM web site.  Is that standard relates to A775?

Thanks,

Sasha Itsekson

If "Barney Bars" is refering to purple epoxy coating, then yes they
conform to different ASTM.  The green bars are ASTM D3963.  The purple (or gray)
bars are ASTM A 934.

The purple epoxy is supposed to be more durable, however it is more
brittle.  Because of this the bars should really be coated after bending.  As you would
expect there is a price premium for this.  It is approx. 30% more than normal
(green) epoxy coating, or about double black steel.
