The firm's main product is earthquale resistant rebar. According to ACI 318, deformed reinforcement resisting earthquake-induced flexural and axial forces in frame members must conform with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) publication ASTM A706. ASTM A706/A706M also continues to place upper limits on yield strength — a fundamental requirement for satisfactory use in reinforced concrete structures designed to resist earthquakes.
Main products sold by the firm include earthquake resistance bebar, low and high carbon wire rod, E-Bar G500+ (a high yield strength rebar product) and billet.
