Water, salts, and other chemicals – they all cause rebar corrosion that can negatively affect the integrity of reinforced concrete structures. The solution? Helix® Micro Rebar®. Unlike conventional rebar, Helix has been tested and proven to resist corrosion in three major ways.
Historically, many walls have been constructed of plain concrete. Modern codes, however, only allow plain concrete walls to be used in limited circumstances, where the walls are inherently stable. Reinforced walls are designed according to ACI 332-14 using rebar to increase their structural capacity. An alternative way to reinforce concrete walls is by using twisted steel micro-rebar (TSMR). TSMR reinforced concrete refers to concrete reinforced with short, randomly oriented twisted steel filaments.

Rebar causes headaches, yet many contractors, developers and even engineers are hesitant to try proven alternatives, simply because they are different.
