“Armastek” is a dynamic world-class company specializing in the manufacture and distribution of reinforcement material made of composite materials. We offer an innovative reinforcement system, that can be utilized in many applications within the construction industry and build environment.
There is enormous potential for composite materials, especially in the construction industry. No other material is so versatile, meets sustainability requirements and has clear economic advantages for clients.
While steel has been a great success as a construction material since the industrial revolution, it does have its disadvantages, such as its low resistance to corrosion and the resulting limited lifetime, which has led engineers to look for alternative solutions.
Fibre composites are a good alternative which have been successfully used since the 1980’s in various industries (e.g., automotive, aircraft, ships, and construction). One of the most prominent among composites is glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP). Another one is the basalt fibre reinforced polymer (BFRP)
With their desirable physical properties and major advantages over steel, GFRP and BFRP are destined to be used in many applications in modern construction industry and remedy a magnitude of previously unsolvable problems. One of their most interesting applications is their use as concrete reinforcement. After extensive development and certified testing “Armastek” introduced both GFRP and BFRP rebar and mesh that not only meet the requirements for sustainability and durability, but also for the first time, COST efficiency.
Now, these revolutionary and potential industry disruptors have now been introduced into the Southern African market through “Armastek South Africa” which territory comprises Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Eswatini, Lesotho Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe, and soon will be expanding into the rest of the SADC countries.
