#5 grade 60 black steel rebar A-996 axle grade rebar is manufactured using train axles as its only raw material source and is made from 100% recycled materials. This provides engineers and contractors with the opportunity to develop valuable LEED points, while utilizing rebar equivalent to A-615. We offer both A-996 and A-615 rebar, which most fabricators prefer, at similar price points.
The primary applications of #5 rebar include pre-cast masonry for use in highway and bridge construction, as well as foundation grade beams, footings and tilt-up walls. #5 reinforcement steel also has widespread uses in the light commercial and residential construction industries, including patio decks, retaining walls and caissons. In metric circles, #5 rebar is known as “16MM.”
Rebar is made from an extremely strong carbon-steel composite. It is available in numerous grades, which are standardized according to the ASTM specification system.
