THE PAG-ASA REBAR

[Top]

Pag-asa Steel rebar products are identifiable through the Company Logo ("PSW", short for
Pag-asa Steel Works), which is hot-rolled and embossed onto each bar at specified intervals.
The Rebar Size Mark, which specifies the nominal diameter of the bar, is also hot-rolled
adjacent to the company logo.
Pag-asa Steel pioneered the practice of placing its logo on its bars in 1975, before it was
mandated by law. The Bureau of Product Standards of the Department of Trade and Industry
of the Philippines now requires all rebar manufacturers to put identifying marks on their bars.

STANDARDS

[ Top ]

Pag-asa Steel produces superior reinforcing steel bars in an array of sizes, lengths, and
grades in adherence to Philippine National Standard (PNS 49:2002), as well as the global
ASTM Standard (ASTM A615/A706) established by the American Society for Testing and
Materials (now known as ASTM International).

BAR SIZES

[ Top ]

Pag-asa Steel manufactures and sells the following standard sizes (in nominal diameters):
10mm, 12mm, 16mm, 20mm, 25mm, 28mm, 32mm, and 36mm. Larger sizes such as 40mm
and 50mm bars may be produced via special order.

For steel bars, the terms "size" and "nominal diameter" are used interchangeably.

WEIGHT TOLERANCE

[ Top ]

Because variation in cross sectional area occurs during hot rolling, a corresponding variation
in linear weight is to be expected. For this reason, PNS 49 provides for an allowable 'variation
in mass' (VIM) of 6%, measured using one meter of rebar.

COMMERCIAL LENGTHS

[ Top ]

Pag-asa Steel rebars come in the following commercial lengths: 6.0m, 7.5m, 9.0m, 10.5m,
and 12.0 m. Special lengths of 13.5 and 15.0 meters may be produced via special order.

Just like weight, the cut length of a rebar may also vary because of shrinkage as it cools
down. The minimum acceptable lengths of the finished rebar according to the Philippine
Standard are as follows:

Std. Length (m)

Min. Acceptable Length (m)

6.0

5.960

7.5

7.453

9.0

8.935

10.5

10.440

12.0

The three grades are distinguished by different color markings painted at the ends of each
bar, as shown in the following table:
