In the past 17 years the market of rebar ropes has grown 6-fold, to 6 million tons.
According to the Armasteel director Lev Zaretskiy, the company has mastered the manufacture of a new type of rebar ropes – 10-wire ropes K10.
Such ropes allow construction companies to save cement (up to 30%), replace crushed stone with the cheaper fillers (thus saving up to 60% depending on the region), and increase manufacturing speed.
The overall savings in using 1 ton of K10 rope could reach $300-400. (Ukrainian metal)
