• 50 foot stock lengths. Common applications for the Grade 75 All-Thread Rebar are tie rods and ground anchors. 150 KSI All-Thread-Bar Williams 150 KSI All-Thread Bar consist of high tensile steel available in seven diameters from 1” (26 mm) to 3” (75 mm) with guaranteed tensile strengths up to 1027 kips (4568 kN). All tension components are designed to develop 100% of the bar’s published ultimate strengths. 60 foot available on special request. or used as a ground. Bars are provided with cold rolled threads over all or a portion of the bar’s length. Williams All-Thread Rebar should only be bent under special provisions. Field cutting should be done with an abrasive wheel or band saw.18-M92. subjected to the high heat of a torch. 2 . All-Thread Rebar is available in 11 diam- eters from #6 (20 mm) through #28 (89 mm) with ultimate tensile strengths up to 961 kips (4274 kN) and lengths up to 50 feet. • Continuously threaded for maximum versatility or threaded on ends only • Durable threads and components capable of developing the full capacity of the bar • Both right hand and left hand threads available upon request to tighten tie rods using turnbuckles or sleeve nuts. • Several options of corrosion protection available from simple coatings to advanced designs for aggressive environments. Williams All-Thread 150 KSI Bar must never be welded. The bars are provided with a special thread designed to meet the requirements of ASTM A615 and Canadian Rebar Specifications CSA-G30. Bars are produced to ASTM A-722 physi- cal standards. Because of the full 360 degrees concentric thread. All components of the systems are designed and manufactured in the United States and have been proven on job sites around the world. All tension components for the systems are designed to develop 100% of the bars published ultimate strength. All diameters are available in continuous lengths up to 50’. Grade 75 All-Thread Rebar Williams 75 All-Thread Rebar is a continuously threaded bar specially designed to be used with fasteners. Threads are cold rolled on the entire length or a portion of the bar as desired. All components for the system are manufactured in North America. Williams Tie Rod Advantages • Lower costs with higher strengths and lighter weights.

economical and durable. fully impregnated and coated with neutral petroleum based compound. Thickness is on the average 45 mils. Hot dip galvanizing bars and fasteners should be done in accordance with ASTM A153. Epoxy coated bars and fasteners should be done in accordance with ASTM A775 or ASTM A934. Galvanized bars have excellent bond characteristics to grout or concrete and do not require as much care in handling as epoxy coated bars. The steel bars are wrapped with an internal centralizer then placed inside of the polyethylene tube where they are then factory pre-grouted. These anchors are often referred to as MCP or Multiple Corrosion Protection anchors. galvanization of anchor rods is more expensive than epoxy coating and often has greater lead time. Heat Shrink Tubing Provides a corrosion protected seal when connecting smooth or corrugated segments. 8 . 150 KSI high strength steel bars shall require special cleaning procedures to avoid problems associated with hydrogen embrittle- ment in compliance with ASTM A143. Heavy plates and nuts are often galvanized even though the bar may be epoxy coated since they are difficult to protect against abrasion in the field. Bitumastic Tape This is a non-woven synthetic fabric. This prod- uct when specified should meet or exceed the requirements of (a) Corp of Engineers C-200. Bars should be cleaned thoroughly prior to use. and is commonly applied in the factory. Epoxy coated bars and com- ponents are subject to damage if dragged on the ground or mishandled. This product is stable in composition and plasticity over a wide tempera- ture range. Typically the dry thickness is between 8 and 24 mils. Coal Tar Epoxy Coal tar epoxy has shown to be abrasion resistant. Pre-Grouted Bars Cement Grout filled corrugated polyethylene tubing is often used to provide an additional barrier against corrosion attack in highly aggressive soils. C200a and (b) AWWA C-210-92 for exterior. Epoxy coating patch kits are often used in the field for repairing nicked or scratched epoxy surfaces. Epoxy Coating Fusion bonded epoxy coating of steel bars to help prevent corrosion has been success- fully employed in many applications because of the chemical stability of epoxy resins. Make sure the surfaces of the bar are clean and dry before coating.
