A THREE STAGE PRODUCTION PROCESS

The Process

Rebar Mechanical Splice

Upsetting splice is a parallel threaded Rebar mechanical splice designed for the connection of concrete reinforcement bars, for diameters 16 to 40mm. The full performance of upsetting Rebar splices is stronger than the reinforcement bar and guarantees bar break under tensile stress testing.

Cutting

The end of the reinforcement bars is sawn square

Cold Forging

The essence of the BARTEC system consists in a Patented method of enlarging the end of the reinforcement bar by cold forging, thus increasing its core diameter

Threading

An ISO standard metric thread is then cut or rolled

Bar-break

Bar-Break feature guaranties fully ductile elongation
