Rebar-in-coils to be added to our product range

Rebar coils (quality: B500B, diameter: 8, 10 and 12 mm) will be added to Kontino’s rebar product range, which currently consists of only straight bars.

Inspecta Sertifiointi Oy has granted a product certificate to Kontino. The coils are respooled and weigh about 2.5 tons each.

They are delivered by Riva Acier S.A. – Kontino’s long-time rebar provider – and they are stored at our warehouse in Vantaa together with the rest of our reinforcing steel products. This way our customers get everything they need from the same place.

Most of our rebar-in-coils will likely be delivered to the concrete product industry and rebar benders. The most significant benefits of further refinement are less waste and higher efficiency.

The first coils, which are mainly intended for customer tests, will arrive in December 2013. The actual stock lots will come in 2014.

Kontino’s current range of reinforcing products includes rebars, rebar meshes and tie wires.
