Testing Twisted Steel Micro Rebar – Direct Tension vs. Bending

June 24, 12 p.m. EST

About the Webinar

This webinar invites forward-thinking construction industry leaders to build differently, improve processes and ensure your concrete projects are the best they can be by learning more about the science behind Helix Micro Rebar.

Helix Micro Rebar can be used in a wide range of common concrete applications, it is the easiest product to finish given the size and low dosage, it has pre-approved doses for most applications and meets design guidelines for alternative means and methods under ACI 318.

Our free webinar will give you insight directly from Helix Steel’s president Luke Pinkerton, who will discuss a new standard for tension testing and inform you about how testing for Helix Micro Rebar differentiates from plastic fibers.

Every webinar attendee will receive an official Certificate of Completion.

What you will learn

  • The testing that Helix Micro Rebar has undertaken
  • The differences between testing fibers and testing Helix Micro Rebar
  • How testing tension vs. bending can deliver different testing results for concrete reinforcement.

About Helix Steel

Helix Steel is an innovative business based in Michigan that manufacturers and distributes the proprietary Helix® Micro Rebar® concrete reinforcement. The one-inch-long twisted steel pieces are mixed with concrete to create a long-lasting bond, preventing cracks before they even start, and are code-approved in many applications from warehouse slabs and highway bridges to tilt-up panels and ICF.

Proactive Concrete Reinforcement Technology

Saves You Time

Every 10,000 sq. ft. of rebar replaced with Micro Rebar® saves one full day of construction.

Saves You Money

Using Micro Rebar® allows contractors to simplify operations, dramatically reducing project costs.

A Superior Product

When compared to rebar, Helix® Micro Rebar® can increase fatigue resistance by up to 300%, and flexural strength by up to 33%.
