ReidBar™ Grade 500E Overview
In addition to the SEISMIC® 500E reinforcing bar range, Pacific Steel also rolls a range of ReidBar™ under licence to Reid Construction Systems. This bar uses the same 500E micro alloy steel as seen in our SEISMIC® 500E bars but is a threaded bar, which can be cut and joined on site using one of the many ReidBar™ connector systems.
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.
SEISMIC® Grade 500E MA steel is readily:
- Weldable (refer AS/NZS 1554.3),
- Identifiable by registered bar marks
- Hot or cold bent (refer to NZS 3109)
- Can be threaded and galvanised.
Test Certificates are available for every production batch of this product.
