PACIFIC STEEL™ Grade 500E Bar & Coil Overview

High tensile, high ductility, plain carbon (micro-alloyed) steel for the reinforcing of concrete, available as plain and deformed bars/coils. This steel meets the demanding requirements of the seismic structural design methods employed in New Zealand, as required by local standard AS/NZS 4671. This reinforcing derives its superior strength and ductility by micro-alloying the steel with small vanadium additions.
