EIG Offers Rebar Field Cards

September 28, 2010

Two (2) laminated pocket cards now available from the Epoxy Interest Group (EIG) of the Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute (CRSI) can be used as a reference for rebar fabrication, field handling and job-site repair.

The first reference card, Field Handling of Epoxy-Coated Reinforcing Bars, shows all the basic field instructions in these major categories: Truck Unloading, Storage, Job-Site Handling, Bar Placement, Bar Supports & Tie Wire, Field Cutting, Patching Material and Concrete Placement.

The second card, Fabrication Practices for Epoxy-Coated Reinforcing Bars, is a checklist of procedures for: Storage, Shearing & Bending, Patching Material, and Handling and Loading.

Both cards feature, on the reverse side, the four (4) steps necessary for the proper repair of damaged epoxy coating at the job-site. They include: cleaning, mixing of the patching material, application and curing.

Free cards are available, to request a sample, e-mail literature@epoxycoatedrebar.com or call 847-517-1200. Laminated for use in-plant or on-site, the cards are also punched so that they can be attached to outgoing rebar shipments for use by field personnel.
