Thermoplastic composites rebars for concrete, the Elium® revolution

Discover the Product range Elium® resins for thermoplastic composites.
Product overview

In a conservative market, dominated by steel reinforcements, composites rebars or FRP (Fiberglass Reinforces Polymer) rebars are considerably improving the strengths, the resistance to corrosion and ultimately the durability of construction exposed to severe environments. With Elium® thermoplastic resin, composites rebars are becoming bendable directly on construction sites and that makes all the difference.

Geographic availability
  • Worldwide

Thanks to many industrial collaborations and academic researches all around the world, Elium® rebars are high quality products meeting the standards and regulations of construction industry.

Elium® rebars have also a considerable advantage: unlike thermoset composites rebars, they can be bent on site, that simplifies the supply chain.

Elium® rebars are an innovation that has been awarded at JEC composite trade fair in 2017.



Elium® resin is compatible with standard pultrusion equipment used by manufacturers of composites rebars. Automated bending machine is currently on development by manufacturers both with the technology to achieve the best mechanical properties and the procedure and software.

Elium® C195 E is a high reactive resin system compatible with resin bath or injection head and multi-temperature zones curing die. Bending process is using heat above the glass transition temperature of Elium® resin to enable forming the rebar at desired shape and length.
