A reinforcement bar, commonly known as a rebar, is a steel bar that is hot rolled and widely used in the construction industry, particularly for concrete reinforcement.

A steel rebar is most often used as a tensioning device to reinforce concrete and other masonry structures to help hold the concrete in a compressed state. Concrete is a material that is very durable in compression, but virtually without any strength in tension. To compensate for this imbalance in a concrete slab's behavior, a reinforcement bar is cast into it to bear the tensile loads. Deformed bars are common steel, or concrete reinforcement bars that are supplied with heavy ridges to assist in binding the reinforcement to the concrete mechanically.

As the GCC market continues to be a major importer of rebars, UIS is perfectly positioned to fulfil this ever present demand with locally manufactured rebars produced in compliance with international specifications, while mitigating the risk of delays in supply and the price volatility of the International market.
