Basalt America Announces Stronger, Lighter, and Corrosion-Free FRP's (Fiber Reinforced Polymers)

Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP), represents a truly groundbreaking advancement in structural reinforcement. Lightweight, strong, and green, they are changing the way the construction industry thinks about rebar. Unlike steel, FRPs don't rust and are far stronger than standard rebar. To learn why Fiber Reinforced Polymers are poised to change the way the world builds, see our video.
