Product Description

The Westox Crack Stitching Bar offers a permanent fix for cracked brickwork. The bars are an austenitic 316 reinforcing stainless steel rod that has many unique properties. Being rolled from a plain round wire, the fins are work-hardened to a very high level whilst the core remains relatively soft. The subsequent twisting process puts the fins into tension and the core into compression. The tensile strength of the base material is more than doubled during the manufacturing process. The pronounced fins over the core make the bonding characteristics of the Westox Crack Stitching Bar far superior to alternative standard reinforcing materials. The uses of the bars are both wide and varied and they can be utilised in new buildings
and for many specialised refurbishment requirements like apartment buildings, historic buildings, bridges and many more.
