The Epoxy Interest Group of the Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute recently announced the publication of “Corrosion-Resistance of Reinforcing Bars: An Accelerated Test,” a report on the corrosion resistance of various types of rebar. Results indicated that stainless steel and epoxy-coated rebar had high corrosion resistance, while galvanized, low-carbon chromium steel, and 3CR12 stainless rebar had lower resistance. Trials included epoxy-coated rebar that had spent 15 years in a high-chloride environment. For more information, visit
