Stainless Steel Reinforcement

Stainless Steel Reinforcement

A comprehensive range of stainless steel reinforcing bar is available from Leviat.

Stainless steel offers many advantages to the specifier and its use in the Construction Industry continues to increase. Stainless steel reinforcement ensures a high degree of corrosion resistance without requiring additional protection.

Ancon Stairib 2304 (1.4362)

A duplex stainless steel reinforcement with a minimum 0.2% proof stress of 500MPa which conforms to BS6744:2016. As per the Australian Stainless Steel Development Association (ASSDA), grade 2304 stainless steel provides similar corrosion resistance properties to Grade 316 stainless steel. It is best used in applications requiring a combination of high strength and corrosion resistance or where maintenance or inspection is impractical. All bars are hot rolled and cold or warm worked to provide the stated mechanical properties and chemical composition as shown in the Ancon Stainless Steel Reinforcement brochure below.

Physical Properties

Extended Temperature Performance
Stainless Steels are high temperature alloys that have excellent mechanical performance at elevated temperature. Austenitic stainless steels do not undergo the ductile to brittle condition change of conventional carbon steel as temperature falls. Austenitic stainless steel bars are therefore suitable for use in cryogenic and high temperature applications.

Low Magnetic Permeability
Austenitic grades of stainless steel have extremely low magnetic permeability characteristics and are virtually non-magnetic. This property can be very helpful to the designer of structures housing equipment such as electric arc furnaces, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) units or other sensitive electronic equipment where a neutral magnetic environment is a requirement.

Bending and Threading
Bars are available supplied cut to length, bent to schedule, threaded and engineered as specifed, please contact our Technical Department for maximum bar lengths.

Tying Wire

Tying wire 1.27mm in diameter is available in grade 2304 (1.4362) stainless steel.
