Anti-Seismic Structures Construction
A leading contractor of anti-seismic structures for the transportation and skyscraper construction industries needed a solid state welded joint between standard rebar and an anchor coupling that exceeded the tensile strength of the rebar itself.
Utilizing The Friction Welding Advantage, American Friction Welding assisted the customer to realize a 110% increase in the tensile strength of the parent material (grade 60 #10 rebar) using the following materials:
Friction welded rebar exceeds the quality standards – SA (Anti-Seismic) and FA (Anti-Fatigue) Class. Gives customers more flexibility in the options of rebar coupler material and processing method.
