THE PAG-ASA REBAR

Pag-asa Steel rebar products are identifiable through the Company Logo ("PSW", short for Pagasa 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

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

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

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

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)

GRADES

Pag-asa Steel rebars comes in the following grades to meet high, intermediate, and low-tensile
building requirements.

Higher tensile grades designated as Grade 75 / 500 and Grade 80 / 550 are also available
subject to agreement and availability.
The three grades are distinguished by different color markings painted at the ends of each bar,
as shown in the following table:

Deformed Reinforcing Steel Bar Weight


The deformed Reinforcing Steel Bar is supplied in length of 9m or 12 m as common sizes. The steel bar diameter
applied is different and accordingly the weight varies. We are listing theoretical unit weight list of commonly used wire
gauge below for your reference.
Deformed steel bar. Grade: GB1499.2-2007, BS4449, A615
Metal Material: HRB335, HRB400, HRB400E, HRB500, G460G, G500B, GR60
Steel bar Length: 9m,12m
