What is Rebar
Reinforcing bar, or more commonly called rebar, is a steel bar or mesh of steel wires used to reinforce concrete and masonry structures to strengthen and hold the concrete in compression. Concrete is very strong under compression but has weak tensile strength. Rebar drastically increases the tensile strength of the structure. There is usually a patterned surface on the reinforcing rod which helps it to bond to the concrete better.
Rebar is very common to scrap in the demolition industry and is removed from the concrete by putting concrete under immense pressure using hydraulic munchers and crushers. The concrete is broken away leaving the steel to be collected and recycled. Scrap rebar may also be left over following a construction project.
